Motion detector alarm circuit with PIR sensor

You have a private area, right? If you have this motion detector alarm circuit. It will reduce your worries. Imagine a big bear is coming to the behind of your house. Then, the siren alert. The big bear is shocked and runs away. You and your family are safe. Is it great?

I know you like me show simple circuits. You can do easy.
This circuit is a piece of cake for you.

How it works

The basic principle, when a human or warm-blooded animal comes to a radius of about 3 to 5 meters. This circuit detects infrared radiation from theirs and sends an alarm.

Infrared PIR Human Motion Sensor Detector

When a signal from an Infrared PIR Sensor module comes to the circuit. It is a 3V peak voltage. Then, this voltage flows to the base of Q1 through R1-current limiting for the transistor.
Now Q1 runs, the current can flow from the 12V to a relay coil. The RY1 pulls contact C to NC. Next, the siren alert with a lot of louder.
In the same time, LED glows up. Because some currents from the emitter of Q1 flows to LED. And R2 limits current to LED1.

We want to use an inexpensive circuit. So, we use C1 and D1 use delay time of siren alert for 20 seconds.

The S1-switch on-off the relay circuit. When you want to close a siren. Also, you can use a remote control instead of S1.

When PIR Sensor runs, it will give a very short signal. We need to keep this voltage with a capacitor. And Diode-D1 protect a discharge voltage of C1, not reverse to PIR sensor. And in a signal of the output of the PIR sensor is AC form with negative voltage. So, diode rectifier to positive only can come to the trigger the transistor.

It is good. Now we have a smart module. It has a delay time mode inside. But it may be expensive a little.

We should use a good power supply at 12V. Although, the module has regulated supply inside. But some one may not have it. The battery 12V is a good choice.


What is a PIR sensor?

Some called Human Detector module. PIR stands for Passive infrared. It is one type of electronic device. It detects infrared radiation from an object. Through the optical integration device into a “Pyro Electric” inside. They will convert the heat energy from infrared radiation into electrical energy. Although, a little Infrared, PIR also can detect infrared and temperature waves.

The manufacturer creates a PIR Motion Sensor module. They are a type of sensor device that is used to detect infrared radiation from human or animal movements. Makes we can use a PIR sensor in many applications. For example, To detect the movement of an organism or detect intrusion in security work.

How to build the circuit

I try to make this circuit as easy as possible. Everything may not be as good as a hundred percent. Many friends test this circuit. It works well.

Hassan bassari said.
I have made this circuit successfully for my 4th-semester mini project…

Please note the following to make it work…

  • Do not use the capacitor C1… as it delays the relay to activate
  • Use a 6v relay for better performance
  • It is better if we use a 12v 1A rectifier for input voltage

Parts list

  1. Q1: BC337, 0.6A 50V NPN transistor
  2. D1: 1N4148, 75V 150mA Diode
  3. D2: 1N4007, 1000V 1A Diode
  4. R1: 1.2K to 2.2K, 0.25W Resistor
  5. R1: 1K, 0.25W Resistor
  6. LED1: LED, Red 3mm LED
  7. C1; 220uF 25V, Electrolytic capacitor
  8. RY1: Relay, 6V to 9V coil
  9. PIR-Sensor: Infrared PIR Human Motion Sensor Detector Modules
  10. Siren 12V
  11. 12V DC power supply at more 1A. For example 12V battery or AC adapter.
  12. Universal PCB and more parts

aj

hye i’m want to use this for my school project and i was wondering if you could explain to me further about the circuit. can i change the siren to maybe a lamp? and what id the use of the LED?

Keng

Remove relay and put pilot lamp 9v to replace. For led series with resisitor 330 ohm 1/4w with one led

Jul Lie

hi, this is for my project.. may i replace the siren into LED? are the schematic still the same?
i need to the the operation of the circuit…

navid

I want to use this ckt but not response properly.what is the code of motion pir sensor?

mack

when i try this circuit…relay still not function..i try check the voltage across is 2++ volt..what happened.?

naik

LED polarity is reversed

Raghav T raj

how can we increase time delay

hassan

i am using this circuit for my project. i have used a 12v o/e/n 57dp relay. the components are in good working condition. but when connected to circuit… its not working…

please help me..

John Paul

Relay is not working

hassan bassari

Me too also commented on january 15 2015…. that the circuit is not working…
but its working now after a few modification..

I have made this circuit successfully for my 4th semester mini project..

Please note the following to make it working..

1. Do not use the capacitor C1… as it delays the relay to activate

2. Use a 6v relay for better performance

3. Also the led is connect wrong… reverse the connection of the led…

4. It is better if we use a 12v 1A rectifier for input voltage

jo

can you send circuit design..please

Aliza Rahman

Hello,
Thank you so much for good circuit. I have also made this circuit
successfully . But the led connection has wrong way .if give it up the positive side of led with motion sensor output line and give it other side of led with ground. so it will be succeed.
thank you

Pasha SM

Hi, what is the voltage to give for pir motion sensor

Pasha SM

This site is very good to know electronic user

Ata

Problem is if we remove the capacitor circuit wont be able to hold the alarm for 20 seconds
So this sucks ! 20 sec for start and 20 sec for end ?

marian

Hi!
May i know what was the specific function of the transistor and diodes in the ckt above? please help advise.

emma

does this sensor detects something present in how long distance?

emma

what sort of things can this be able to detect and how does detection range changes according to obstacle?

Joyal

Can you give design of this circuit for all components…pls

anitta mariya

pls help me for design the circuit
