Complete instructions for this episode of Weekend Projects can be found here.

This project is great for those beginning to build with Arduino, and requires no soldering. Using very few components, and some jumper wire, we’ll build a simple motion-sensing alarm. This project combines technologies we’ve used in previous Weekend Projects, including a PIR sensor and piezo buzzer. It’s great for practical jokes and doubles as an early warning system for the zombie invasion!
