A simple Laser Tripwire kit that will sound the alarm once somebody trips over it! If you’re scared of schematics (beginner) this is the kit for you!
Note: you cannot connect your speakers, nor control the pitch and tone of the siren. If you would like to do that, please purchase the advanced Laser Tripwire Kit!
Lazers Go PEW PEW!
Protect your stash of uneaten almonds or salt and vingar chips. Or maybe keep your pesky roommates out of where he isn’t supposed to snoop around. The handy, dandy laser tripwire will be your sidekick! Best of all, it’s 100% certified DIY. After you build this, you can officially tell your friends and family that you’re a certified spy of sorts – heck.. go to the office where they change names and change your name to a more kickbutt spy name! Bond, or Fisher, or Snake anyone?
Or if you’re like me and you have cats protecting your home already, just use the laser tripwire to re-enact scenes from those movies — butt-kicking, judo-moving, action-heroines (or heroes) in tights – jumping, hopping, and dodging those tripwires that protect the heavily guarded piece of something that costs a lot of money.
If you have cats, but they aren’t apt to protect your home – simply mount lasers onto their foreheads and VOILA!
Either way, the laser tripwire will be really useful!
Then of course, there’s the Arduino. If you have a DIY Arduino, you can use it with the laser tripwire kit to do some cool things with it. If you don’t have it, just go grab it inside of the Kipkay Kits Store. With the Arduino as a neat addition, you can make sure that after the laser wire is “tripped,” the alarm stays on. Or add indicator lights. The possibilities are really endless. I used it on one of my doorways to keep the dogs out of my room – with much success! Cats – not so much.
