Iv heard many trying to use a PLC to control an alarm for a house or any sort of place. I was wondering what components or good references there are(design, circuits etc. and if worth trying). I don't want to make it too complicated since the PLC will be either micrologix or SLC, maybe PLC500 or any suggestions?

Hello!

For this type of application you must define the parameters for alarms(when the alarm is running).

After that you must take into account what sensor do you need and wich are suitable for this type of alarms.You can use optical sensors,weighing sensors,capacitive sensors.

Some sensor manufacturers are :
www.sick.com
www.wenglor.com
www.vishay.com

and others ....

Based on this you can program your PLC to suit your application.

Best regards!
