Q:
Hi I notice that the batteries don't last very long for this alarm. Will it run on only 5 V. I ask because if it would I could run it off my Raspberry PI continuously rather than keep having to buy new Batteries ( which isn't very green ) Thanks
Asked by: john simmonds
A:
Hi John, Thank you for your question, it would need to be 5V or a power source close in value to that I am afraid. Best Regards Cullen

Q:
Note that in "How the Circuit Works" in the instruction booklet the 2.2K ohm resistor is actually the 220K ohm one provided in the kit. It looks like the circuit functions as a 1-shot, so that to re-enable it I need to cycle the power. Is that correct? If so, I will add a Normally Open switch on the power line as a Reset.
Asked by: Diane Brancazio
A:
Hi Diane, Thank you for your question, you should not need to power cycle the kit to re-enable it from what I have tried. Could you point me to the particular point with the note about the 2.2K resistor. I have had a look over the instructions today and could not find a mention of a 2.2K resistor but could easily have missed it! Best Regards Cullen

Q:
Please could you explain how to connect the Magnetic Door Contact Switch to the circuit? Thank you.
Asked by: Kirsty
A:
Hi Kirsty, Thank you for your question, so the magnetic switch comes with two parts a switch and a magnet, both in a white plastic casing. The switch is triggered on and off by the magnet being moved away from the switch. In the alarm circuit you would solder the switch into where the micro lever switch normally sits. The switch is the part with the metal contacts on the bottom. If you were going to trigger the alarm when the door opened then you would affix the magnet to the back of the door and the alarm so that the switch is nearly touching the magnet. When the door is opened the magnet would be moved away thus triggering the alarm circuit. I hope this makes sense it should be an easy change over but any other questions let me know. Best Regards Cullen

Q:
Can I change the output to LED without a problem?
Asked by: rico
A:
HI Rico, Thank you for your question, you should be able to change that over relatively easily though depending on the LED you may need to add a resistor in. Best Regards Cullen

Q:
How long would this kit take to assemble?
Asked by: Meerav Shah
A:
It would take roughly between 10 and 20 minutes depending on how good you are at soldering. Maybe a bit longer if you have not soldered before.
