Things used in this project

Hardware components:
Arduino Nano R3
Individually Addressable LEDs WS2812
I'm going to use 26 LEDs - less than a half of the strip
Motion Sensor HC-SR501
One for the bottom, one for the top of the stairs
5V 1-2A Power Supply
Cable Trunking (25mm x 16mm x 2m)
Hand tools and fabrication machines:
09507 01
Soldering iron (generic)
10mm Drill bit
Hy gluegun
Hot glue gun (generic)
Used to trim the cable trunking
3D Printer (generic)
You could use wider trunking to create the enclosure for PIR sensors instead

I am passionate about technology, cycling and art. This would explain why my bike has more computing power than your average office.
