Bike Alarm – a simple application of LED

Stay away guy! I didn’t want my bike be stolen anymore, so I made this alarm circuit.

Just wind a thin conductive string around the wheels. If the bike is moved, this string will break up and the alarm light will turn on and send out a message that your bike is moved.

The logic behind is a simple Not logic, thus when the string is good, the electric current is drawn to the ground so that no current flows into the LED; otherwise when it breaks, the LED turns on.
