alarm circuit issue

Recommended Posts


i made a alarm circuit with a fototransistor and ir led , when the door opens it turns ON and a siren HIGH sound activates and the only way to turn it off is manually…. anyway it works great!
but when the power supply ( a 3.5 v battery ) is On for about 7 hours, it automatically turns the alarm ON! and that’s bad.

my theory is that  when time goes it spends  current, so the 3.5 v battery doesn’t have the same amount of
current like 7 h before, so the “sensor” is like more or less sensitive and triggers the alarm….

how can I solve that problem? do I have to use some sort of HIGH PASS filter?

please help.

Only way to redesign for driving the circuit to sleep mode while no signal is received to save battery power
