IoT based Door Security Alarm Project with Blynk

Introduction

Today security is one of the prime aspect in our society. Securing our home and family is important. In this article we will see how to make a IoT based Door Security Alarm using Blynk. This is a simple but effective door security system.

IoT based Door Security Alarm consists of simple, easy to find components and modules. You can get these form local market and start building it by your own.

Parts List

This project requires simple components and modules. These are easily available in the market.

  • WeMos D1 Mini x 1
  • Magnetic Door Sensor x 1
  • Buzzer 5V x 1
  • Transistor BC547 x 1
  • Resistor 330Ω x 3
  • LED x 2
  • 2 Pin Screw connector x 1
  • Male/Female berg strip x 1 (Each)
  • Dotted PCB small x 1

How it Works?

WeMos D1 Mini wifi module constantly checks the status of magnetic door sensor. If there is a change in door sensor the alarm gets activated and buzzer beeps. IoT based Door Security Alarm will also notify you through your smartphone using blynk app.

IoT based Door Security Alarm

There are two modes available to set. You can enable the alarm when you are not at home or when you think it should be enabled.

  1. Alarm ON – In this mode if door is opened buzzer will start beeping and you will be notified via Blynk app.
  2. Alarm OFF – In this mode there will be no buzzer beeps neither blynk notification.

Sensors and Modules Functions

WeMos D1 Mini

WeMos D1 mini

This wifi module is used to connect with internet and send data to blynk app. This also controls buzzer and Led’s as per the code.

Magnetic Door Sensor

magnetic sensor

Magnetic Door sensor is used to detect the movement of the door. These sensors are available in two types.

  1. Normally Open
  2. Normally Closed

In this project we are using normally open type.

Circuit Diagram

This is the circuit diagram of IoT based Door Security Alarm. You can connect all these components in a normal PCB and solder it. Use USB to power WeMos D1 Mini

  1. Hi,
    Thanks for the project.
    When the alarm is on, as long as the door is open, the siren will sound and send messages. How can set the siren to sound for only one minute and only send a message if the door stays open?
