Cookie tin alarm

Paso 1: Hazlo

¿Qué es?

Has anyone been in your cookie tin? You can program your BBC micro:bit to act as an alarm to let you know! You will learn about selection, comparison logic, and the micro:bit's light sensor.

Estos dos vídeos te enseñarán qué vas a hacer y cómo programarlo:

Cómo funciona

  • The program turns the micro:bit’s LED display into a light sensor.
  • Put your micro:bit into the tin you wish to protect. When the lid is opened, the light sensor detects a change in light level and triggers the alarm.
  • The program uses an infinite loop to keep sensing the light level.
  • Selection ('if... else') and comparison logic (> 30) are used so that if the light level is above a certain amount, an angry face appears on the display; else, it clears the screen.

Qué necesitas

  • micro:bit (o simulador MakeCode)
  • Editor de MakeCode
  • pilas

Paso 2: Prográmalo

Paso 3: Mejóralo

  • Adjust the program, removing the "else" part of the comparison, so that the angry face remains on the micro:bit’s display whatever the light level so that you can tell someone has opened your tin.
  • Add an audible alarm using blocks from the music section of the MakeCode editor.
  • Count how many times your tin has been opened by introducing a variable into the program.
  • If you have two micro:bits, use the radio function to send you a signal as soon as your tin has been opened. Take a look at the light alarm project to find out how to do this.
