Arduino Intruder Security Alert System

Bike Security System Using Arduino & Vibration Sensor

Introduction

I will show you how to make an Arduino Intruder Security Alert System using Vibration Sensor in today’s tutorial. You can implement this system in your vehicles so as any intruder or someone tries to sit on your bike, it will create some vibration and the alarm will start buzzing with flashing led.

Working of Intruder security Alarm

In this project, we will connect the vibration sensor to the Arduino. When there is no vibration, the output of the vibration sensor is 0 (low voltage), Else the output is 1 (High Voltage). If Arduino gets 1 output from the vibration sensor, it will turn on Buzzer and LED.


Components Required

So let’s get started making Arduino Intruder Security Alert System using Vibration Sensor. To make this system more compact, I am using Arduino Nano. Following are the lists of all the components that are required for building this project.

Now. let’s learn to interface Vibration sensors, Buzzer, & LED with Arduino.

I assemble the circuit in a breadboard, but you can order a custom PCB from NextPCB. Now you can visit https://www.nextpcb.com/ and order the PCB. NextPCB is one of the biggest PCB manufacturer companies in China. They offer very good quality PCB at a reasonable price. NextPCB new customers also receive a $100 Coupon as a signup bonus.

The circuit connection is fairly simple. Connect the Ground pin of the Vibration sensor, buzzer, and LED to the GND pin of Arduino. Now, connect the VCC pin of the vibration sensor to the 5Volt pin. Similarly, D0 (signal) pin to D3 pin of Arduino. Lastly, connect the buzzer positive pin to D4 and the LED positive pin to the D5 pin of Arduino. You can follow the schematics and table below to assemble the circuit.

Program code: Arduino Intruder Security Alert System

I will explain every step of the program code to help you understand and modify it according to your requirements. First, we defined the variable “Buzz” for the buzzer, “vs” for vibration sensor, and “LED” for Red LED with their interfaced pin with Arduino

int Buzz = 4; //Buzzer
int LED = 5;  //LED
int vs =3; // vibration sensor
int i=0;

In a void setup, we have defined the pinMode function for all the components

void setup(){
  pinMode(Buzz, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(LED, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(vs, INPUT); 
}

Here, in a loop, the program reads the data from the vibration sensor, if there a vibration the result is High. In this condition, Buzzer and LED are turned ON.

void loop(){
int vib = digitalRead(vs);
  if(vib == HIGH)
  {
    for(i=0;i<10;i++)
    {
    digitalWrite(Buzz, HIGH);
    digitalWrite(LED, HIGH);
    delay(500);
    digitalWrite(Buzz, LOW); 
    digitalWrite(LED, LOW); 
    delay(100);
  }
  }

Else the buzzer and LED remains in an OFF state

else{
    digitalWrite(Buzz, LOW);
    digitalWrite(LED, LOW); 
  }
}

    digitalWrite(LED, HIGH);
    delay(500);
    digitalWrite(Buzz, LOW); 
    digitalWrite(LED, LOW); 
    delay(100);
  }
  }
  else{
    digitalWrite(Buzz, LOW);
