With Getting Started with Electronic Projects, you will create several popular electronic security
projects. This practical and accessible guide will show you more than just building handy and useful electronic security
Beginning with what the hams call "DC to Daylight," you will learn how to build everything from an IR Beacon to an RF power meter and a ZigBee point-to-point network. All you need to get started is a few simple tools and ordinary soldering skills.
The projects eventually become more complex when you start building an infrared flashlight using materials from a dollar store. Here you start with a IR flashing beacon and a motion sensitive alarm with a really cool on/off switch, then you move on to a black box project
that will turn your sound card into an oscilloscope and eventually a ZigBee-based alarm system.
