Been playing around with the PIR sensor this morning.

 

 

 

Managed to wire it up and get some code from this very useful source

http://www.circuitmagic.com/arduino/pir-motion-sensor-with-arduino/

 

Now to understand the code. Changing some of variables and seeing what happens.

 

I really need to get on with having a go at soldering but having to wait until later in the week to catch up with my father in-law. He has a bit of experience and the kit. I did however find the following video useful.

For the rest of the week I think I'm going to have a look at the lessons and tutorials on element 14- Not sure why I haven't already done this!

 

Cheers
