TF03 Home Security Alarm Device

DFRobot Feb 25 2020 774

With the development of society, people pay more attention to security. Traditional security, which is carried out by constant patrols by security personnel, is not suitable for the public due to high prices. 

While, I recently came into contact with a laser ranging sensor - TF03, which has already reached to the industrial level. And its detect range is 180m. It can work normally with strong light and in rain or frog. Its production level is IP67 and uses UART port. Let's make a TF03 home security alarm device!


Designing Idea

Select arduino uno as the main control to communicate with TF03, which monitor the distance. Put the distance monitor to the boundary of the target area, the probe should be parallel to the boundary. Once any object cross the boundary, the value of distance will change. Then we can find out the position of cross-border by analyzing the abnormal distance value, and show the distance from a cross-border point to sensor. Then we can alert the intruder by trumpet and LED light and call a guard.
Moreover, the device is designed with a master button. And the alarm can only be released by the master button. 


1. TF03 (ToF) Laser Range Sensor(100m) x1

2. DFRduino UNO R3 x1

3. IO Expansion Shield for arduino x1

4. Speaker Module x1

5. Lithium Battery (7.4V) x1

6. LED module x2

7. Push Button x1

10. Thin Conductors


Making Procedure

1. 3D printing housings


2. Hardware Connection

(2) Install the display to the other housing, which has more space.

(4) Install the push button and the speaker.

(2) Connect 2 LEDs via A0 and A3.

(4) Connect the speaker to D8.


5. Arrange all wires, put 2 housings together, and screw the housing screws.
