The kit can be used to make a shed or room alarm. It is armed / disarmed by a hidden switch.

The alarm can be further enhanced by using a simple key switch for arming / disarming or by adding a magnetic door contact to activate it. The board, battery pack & buzzer can be placed into a box designed by the student.
