What can I make with this kit?
Make car thieves think twice with this fake car alarm. The kit uses a low powered LED that blinks on and off and gives the impression of an active alarm system protecting your car. This simple kit comes with 15 parts, and is perfect for those just starting in electronics and even those who want to add some deterrent to their car. With a 45mm x 25mm board, you can fit this kit in almost anywhere.

How does this kit work?
Use the capacitors, resistors, and a microchip to create a circuit that makes the LED flash. The LED flashes when the power to the LED is turned on and off repeatedly. The LED uses very little power to keep battery power sources going longer. This kit requires a soldering iron and solder, and may require wire cutters.

How easy is this kit to solder?
This kit is easy to solder for any ability level and gives you a great introduction to a lot of basic parts. Once you’ve built the kit, you can add a professional looking enclosure (not included) to make it look just like a real alarm with just the LED visible. This kit runs of a 5-18V power supply (not included) and comes with a 9V battery clip.

Soldering required Yes
Voltage 5 - 18V
