Hey everyone, basically this project includes an Arduino Uno, magnetic switch sensor, and the Seeed SD card Shield. When the magnetic sensor is tripped, the arduino fetches and plays a sound from the SD card to a speaker.
My questions are: - How would one go about wiring the sensor up to the arduino? I see the Com. NC and NO labels above the screws (see link above), but how do I wire that to the arduino? - Where could I find the library for the SD Shield? I checked their website but didn't find anything. - What would be some sample code to go by? Even finding how to do each function (when the sensor's magnetic field does not detect its counterpart, retrieve the music file from the SD card and play it through a speaker) separately and I could change and compile them together myself would be helpful.
I'm pretty new to sensors (and find them absolutely fascinating!) but I'm majoring in Robotics/Photonics in college. I'm pretty decent when it comes to some programming languages (HTML, CSS, AS2, and currently learning C/C++ and Ladder Logic). I've played around with the arduino before, but not on a scale like this to start a project.
Thank you for your time,
P.S. I apologize if this is posted in the wrong section. Feel free to move appropriately. ;)
