This guide is for people that wish they had a soundtrack to their life. Using a PIR sensor and magnetic door switch with a Raspberry Pi, you'll be able to play a sound file every time you open a door. More specifically, it will play a pre-recorded sound file based on whether you are entering (applause!) or leaving (booooo!).

This guide works with all 20-pin and 40-pin versions of the Raspberry Pi. 

This project was conceived and executed along with George Michael Brower.
