Hejo! Today I'm going to show you how to build a bauss burglar alarm using LittleBits. In case you didn't know, Littlebits is a system of interlocking electronics modules that you can use to create a lot of stuff with. They are easy to use and great for beginners and prototypes alike.

Step 1: Parts

For this instructable, you will need these bits:


  1. Power
  2. Slider
  3. Buzzer
  4. Sound Sensor
  5. Pulse
  6. 3 way connector
  7. Latch
  8. Motion Detector
  9. Any LED Bit
  10. Cloudbit

Step 2: Setting Up Power

As I said earlier LittleBits are easy to use and fun to prototype with. This is the first part of the bit-build; the power. After the power bit, you should add any sensor and the latch proceeding the sensor. After the Latch bit, add the #-way connector( Use picture).

Step 3: Adding the buzzers and light makers!

So now that you have the power setup, it is time to add the actuators to the 3-way connector bit. I chose the arrangement shown in the picture above, but its up to you to mish-mash the actuators together in your own way. Note: I used the Cloudbit in my alarm. If you will seriously use this alarm to protect your valuables, I strongly recommend using the Cloudbit. it can be configured in a way so that it can transmit messages to your laptop. It would notify you if something was up, and would be a good addition to any alarm.
