STAMP security system
The Stamp Security System is suitable for the home, a small office or a shop. The heart of the system is the BASIC Stamp microcontroller. The Stamp has the advantage that it is programmed in BASIC, and requires a PC on which to write and download the program. You can suit the logic of the system to your own requirements, making it as simple or as complicated as you wish. You can trick burglars with routines of your own devising, leaving them wondering what is going to happen next, and putting them at a psychological disadvantage. You can change the program from time to time, as you think of improvements or when you expand the system.
