Arduino based tilt motion lock

   By using Accelerometer and solenoid lock we can create tilt motion lock system with simple and easy to use arduino board.

arduino based sequential tilt motion lock

Construction and Working

   Here the Accelerometer output and bias pins are connected with analog pins of arduino board, and the solenoid lock connected with digital pin D10 through switching transistor BC548.

 When the motion detected by the accelerometer then the arduino board gives switching output through D10 pin and controls solenoid lock.
