Circuit Diagram

This provides a visual reference for wiring of the components. They aren't true to scale, just meant to be used as reference. This diagrams was created using Fritzing software.

We used male to female jumper wires to easy connect and disconnect the Crickit from the motor.

Connect each wire to the number 1 terminal on the Crickit's Motor terminal block.


The  3xAA battery case connects to the barrel port on the Crickit and is mounted to the bottom side of the printed lid or secured to the bottom the the Crickit with foam tape.


Use two Alligator clip to Jumper wires to connect the speaker terminals. Attached the alligator clips to the two tabs on the speaker and the jumper ends to the Crickit Speaker terminal blocks.


Passive Infrared Sensor (PIR)


Set the Jumper on the back of the PIR sensor from H to L.  The sensor connects to the 5v terminal on the NeoPixel side, while the GND and Signal connect to the 1 header on the Signal I/O side of the Cricket.
