I made a circuit of 5 sets of two LEDs in series with a 1K resistor that are activated by a PIR motion sensor on different time settings. It's working fine on a bread board (though the LEDs flicker a little and I couldn't decide if that was bad or not.)
The intention is to put the sets of LEDs into the bushes out front - so that when someone walks by 5 sets of "eyes" light up.
My question is - how do I take this from breadboard to real life? I have a container that I was going to put the breadboard and Arduino and power source into - probably the PIR and light sensor too. I know that basically I need to connect (solder?) the LEDs to longer wires but do I also need to solder them to the breadboard? no right? cause that would ruin it for later - so what else should I use? And is there any special wire I should use?
Obviously, I don't know a whole lot about electric work. I wouldn't have come to the forums with such a simple question but I was having a hard time googling it and just want the best and straightforward advice.
