This is a simple but effective alarm circuit which can reset its self after a time that you select. it has normally open and normally closed triggers which make this circuit very practical. This alarm has normally open and normally closed triggers. It's on a 555 timer so the alarm will reset it's self after a certain amount of time. The time is adjustable with the variable resistor in the circuit. The alarm has a reset switch which you can replace with a key switch to make it more secure, and you can change the triggers to other types of door or window switched too. The alarm uses a relay which is connected to a siren but you can replace the siren with whatever you want. The circuit is running off 9VOLTS but can range from 4V - 16V.
