Burglar alarm circuit or Theft alarm circuits are available in several forms. The above circuit was one of that kind using timer IC 555 as the main component. The circuit is very easy to construct and the cost of this circuit is also very less. So we can implement this circuit by our own and install this circuit in our home so that you can improve your knowledge and it also adds protection to your home.

WORKING OF BURGLAR ALARM CIRCUIT:

The working of this circuit is very easy to understand.In the above circuit IC 555 was used as a Astable multivibrator.The Astable multivibrator puts out a continuous stream of rectangular pulses having a specified frequency. Thus by using the Astable multivibrator we can produce continuous frequency which was given as input to the speaker which makes an alarm sound in case of any disturbance in its trip wire. Pin diagram of IC 555 was given below for your better understanding.

Now we can see how we can change the Astable Multivibrator to a alarm circuit.In the above circuit the 4th pin (RESET pin) was connected to the ground using the thin strand of copper wire which is used as a trip in this circuit.The function of the 4th pin that it resets the timing interval when it was connected to the ground.

When the wire was connected the Multivibrator cant produce the rectangular pulses of constant frequency.When the copper strand is cut off then the 4th pin will have no connection with the ground.Therefore IC 555 produces the output pulse and which was given as input to the speaker thus it drives the speaker to give a noise which would scare the burglar away.Thus your homemade effective burglar circuit is ready

When installing this burglar alarm, you must ensure that the entire system is properly wired. Proper installation of the system is the key for the safety of your home and family. Test the alarm several times to be sure it’s working properly. The alarm should be loud to the point that it can grab the attention of your neighbors. Then, display a sign that you have a security alarm system. This will keep the intruders from breaking into your house. ->Odessa Hanton

If you want to prevent burglars from hitting your home, you have to think like one. Identify vulnerable areas in your home that burglars will most likely use as entrance and exit points. These are the areas that you must prioritize if you’re going to install a security system. This way, intruders will be stopped even before they enter your house. Security systems are a powerful weapon to prevent crimes; use these to your advantage.
