I took two red LEDs and connected them to a resistor~that came in the package. And connected that to a 6 inch male power lead that plugged into a AC to DC MultiVoltage Power adapter. Then plugged that into a socket adapter which i had screwed into one of the motion sensor sockets. I connected the wires from the motion sensor to some 20 gauge Hook up wire and put a male plug on the end of it. Then plugged it into the wall, set the switch to test and whola! :jol: My Demon under the stairs was born!

Thanks HJ and BD! Now I have to solder my connections. Just hot glued and taped to make sure it worked! LOL Then will make a box for the motion sensor to sit near my sidewalk. Can only imagine all the fun I'm going to have with that this Halloween! When they walk up they wont know what hit em! muwhaaahahahahahah :>

It is alive! lol Way to go DFBL. Your demon still in the wrapper looks great, LOL. Private joke folks sorry. In all seriousness, it came out just fine. Now you see that there's nothing to making props other than conceiving an idea, and asking questions on anything that has you stumped. there's no such thing as a prop that someone can't build. the talent pool is large enough around here to come up with answers to most everything. So what's the next project?

I think the flicker is just from moving the camera around. From the description, the LEDs would just have a constant brightness.

Nice and easy project. It would also be good for distracting people so that you can do something else to really scare them.

Nice! I've been looking for a simple way to do motion activation. This may be it.

How much was total cost?

I have no idea how to hook up the wiring to the motion detector. Would you post more pics please of the finished product? :)
