I recently got myself a new Motorcycle, it is the new Duke 200 from KTM in India. It is a perfect Geeks Bike with all the hi tech electronics. However there is no after market security alarm system available for it yet, can only be imported and costs 250GBP!! . After months of searching I’ve decided to build one of my own.. Thank fully Bajaj have left a Security connector intact for the Indian market. The Alarm is being designed to fit that connector.
The project isn’t complete yet. The details are as follows:
- Bluetooth Control
- App runs on Android
- Motion Sensor (not yet implemented
- Immobilizer (not yes implemented)
- Plug and Play design
Some incomplete board shots:
And a video of it in action:
This project has been put on hold due to excessive current consumption by the Bluetooth module in idle mode. Will have to wait till I can find a way to reduce the current consumption.
Found it, this is what will work:
Sparkfun: “The RN-42 uses only 26uA in sleep mode while still being discoverable and connectable.”
Now I will wait till I have enough funds allocated for this project, in the meantime here is the pinout for the KTM Duke 200/125 Alarm connector which can be used to connect almost any alarm system to the bike without making any cuts to the electrical system.
