Breadboard Layout

The only thing that you are connecting to the Arduino is the PIR sensor, so you could if you prefer simply push the wires attached to the PIR sensor directly into the Arduino board. However, the wires from the sensor, are a bit loose in the Arduino sockets so it is probably better to use the breadboard layout below.
