Playing a short sound file when motion is detected

Hi,

Complete rookie here.

Can the Uno be programmed to output a 3-second audio when motion is detected (I am also not sure if a motion sensor can be hooked up to Uno as input).

I’d like to play the 3-second audio decently loud … as loud as a car honking.

Thanks in advance.

You will need an audio amplifier for the output.

It can.

Yes. One page to describe this is here:- http://www.elecfreaks.com/7440.html

Awesome! Thanks a lot Grumpy_Mike. After I have all the components and dive into the project, I'm sure I'll have some follow up questions. But for now, really appreciate the info.
