Alarms and security circuit diagrams

Radio Wave Alarm

This simple circuit is sure to have the police beating a path to your door- however, it has the added advantage of alerting you to their presence even before their footsteps fall on the doormat.

Water Level Alarm

A circuit that offers visual indication of fluid level in a vessel, with a switchable audible alarm. Example uses would be to monitor the level of water in a bath or cold storage tank.

Battery Powered Burglar Alarm

This is a single zone alarm - with independently adjustable Exit, Entry and Siren Cut-Off timers. It will accommodate the usual types of normally-closed input devices - such as magnetic-reed contacts, foil tape and PIRs.

Expandable Multi-Zone Modular Burglar Alarm

The Basic Alarm Circuit has an automatic Exit/Entry Zone - an Instant Alarm Zone that will accept both normally-closed and normally-open triggering devices - and an "Always On" 24-hour Personal Attack/Tamper Zone. By using the Expansion Modules - you can add as many extra alarm zones as you require.

SCR Based Burglar Alarm

This is a simple SCR based burglar alarm circuit. Its features include automatic Exit and Entry delays - together with a timed Bell cut-off and Reset. It's designed to be used with the usual types of normally-closed input devices such as - magnetic-reed contacts - micro switches - foil tape - and PIRs.

Transistor Based - Single Zone Alarm

This circuit features automatic Exit and Entry delays - timed Bell/Siren cut-off - and system reset. It has provision for normally-open and normally-closed switches - and will suit all of the usual input devices (Pressure Mats, Magnetic Reed Contacts, Foil Tape, PIRs and Inertia Sensors).

Emergency Light & Alarm

This circuit is permanently plugged into a mains socket and NI-CD batteries are trickle-charged. When a power outage occurs, the lamp automatically illuminates. Instead of illuminating a lamp, an alarm sounder can be chosen. When power supply is restored, the lamp or the alarm is switched-off. A switch provides a "latch-up" function, in order to extend lamp or alarm operation even when power is restored.

3 Zone Duress Alarm

This is a 3 zone alarm for use in high risk areas or possible duress situations. Typical examples being banking or betting booths. The alarm consists of 3 normally open push button switches which can be hidden or in plain view. Once pressed the alarm will latch and a LED will light showing which zone has pressed the alarm.
