I’ve recently had my motorcycle stolen. Now I’m trying to figure out an alarm for when they try to steal it again from my front yard. Since we don’t have a terminator yet to shoot and “hurt” (cough) them, I came up with the following:
A pressure sensor beneath one of the tiles where I put the side stand of my bike on. When this sensor no longer detects pressure, the bike has been moved and then, when armed, my house lights up, sirens start yelling, police is warned, whatever.
Now I need help building such a sensor. I’ve found pressure mats, used in stores to detect customers entering stores, but that is oversized. Smaller ones don’t have a on/off (connect or not) output, so they don’t work with binary sensors. At least not that I could find easily.
Any help is appreciated, as are other (easier) solutions.
