Raspberry Pi Pico

The PIR Sensor triggers the Pico Board each time motion is detected and then the Raspberry Pi Pico board turns on the Buzzer. Let’s go ahead and take a look at the circuit diagram.  

Raspberry Pi Pico PIR Sensor Circuit Diagram:

The PIR Motion Sensor Red and Black wires are connected with the Raspberry Pi Pico board 3.3V and GND pins. While the signal wire of the PIR sensor is connected with the GP14 of the Pico board. This is a 5V buzzer and it can’t be directly controlled using the Pico board; so, that’s why I am using this driver circuit to turn ON and OFF this buzzer. The base of the transistor is connected with GP28 pin of the Raspberry Pi Pico Board. So, that’s all about the connections.

Raspberry Pi Pico PIR Motion Sensor Programming:

I defined buzzer as the output and PIR Sensor as the Input. Buzzer is connected to GP28 and PIR Sensor is connected to GP14. I am going to call these pins the buzzer and PirSensor.

Inside the while loop, we check if the PIR Motion sensor has detected any motion and then accordingly turn ON and turn OFF the buzzer.  So, that’s all about the code.

I uploaded the code and it was working perfectly. For the practical demonstration watch video given below.
