Home Security with Lasers

As with the passage of time, technology is advancing towards its new level. With this advancements we are also keeping ourselves up to date. As talking about our home security, it’s a need for almost everyone. So with recent technology, Home Security with Lasers are emerging fast, with its keen properties including hidden, more versatile and efficient in alarming for the unattended guests.

In this project, we’ll be making cheap but yet smart Home Security with Lasers tool. When the hidden laser barrier is broken, loud siren will alarm for unattended guest.

Step 1: What You Need…

Home Security with Laser Items

1. 2 Small project boxes 
2. 1 1000uF 35v Capacitor 
3. 1 5K Variable Resistor 
4. Photocell 
5. IC Board 
6. 9v battery and clip 
7. 1 N3904 Transistor 
8. Toggle switch 
9. Small mirrors 
10. HandiTak 
11. 12v DC Piezo Siren – 102dB 
12. Aixiz 650nm 5mw 12X30mm laser 
13. Aixiz 3.2v AC Adapter

Step 2: Build the Circuit

Home Security with Lasers Circuit

Build the circuit based on the diagram. I cut my IC board with a dremel to make it smaller so there was enough room in the box along with the 9 v battery.

Step 3: Install It…

Install the circuit board and the 9v battery in the hobby box. Line up the photocell at the hole and hot glue everything in place. Also, attach the siren and run the wiring inside the box. Finish your solder connections with the siren.

Step 4: Build the Laser Housing

Build the Laser Housing

Cut 3 holes in your second hobby box. One for the switch, one for the laser housing and one small one for the wires from the AC Adapter. Run the wires from the AC adapter in the box. Install the swicth and hot glue the laser in place. Wire the positive end of the AC adapter to the red wire from the laser and wire the negative ends of the laser and adapter to the switch.

Step 5: Tweaking…

Laser Tweaking...

Turn on the laser and point it at the photocell box. You will have to adjust the resistor so the photocell is sensitive to the laser pointing at it during the day. At night, when the laserbeam is broken, the siren will sound.

Step 6: Mount the Laser System

Decide where you want your protection, across what doorways and then decide on where you want the laser to plug in and where you want the photocell box to pick up the laser. I used 1″ square mirrors (from an arts and crafts store) and HandiTak to mount the mirrors. You could use a more permanent solution for the mirrors. The idea is to angle all the mirrors to the next wall across where you want protection and then have it end up pointing at the photocell.

Step 7: Protection ON

Protection ON

Now when it gets dark and the laserbeam is broken, the LOUD 102dB siren will wail! Hope you enjoy this.
