Hello , I just purchased [u]Arduino - Kit Workshop Base level[/u] as of 6-21-14 . I chose Arduino UNO because I have some prior experience with C++ and really appreciate the Arduino's reference page. I evaluated myself as a novice still . I'm jumping right into my kit and could use any feedback . My first goal with the materials from the kit and a PIR sensor is to have; (in If/Then statements for now)
If Parallax PIR Motion Sensor detects Infrared light pass by Then set of Piezo Buzzer goes off for 5 seconds a 3 second pause then Repeat
If the Piezo Buzzer is going off Then PCB Push Button deactivates or snooze the Piezo Buzzer All of it stops buzzing after 5 minutes , repeats if someone walks by again
Example : Above my door frame i have Arduino mounted with the PIR sensor when someone walks in the buzzer will go off , thus alerting someone has walked in the room and the button can be pressed to turn it off .
Another is if you have a Baby child that loves to wander around the house and you need to know if they are walking into your home Office because it isn't child - proof.
I'm new to the community and look forward to being a proactive learning member and could use guidance with my Arduino UNO.
