Adafruit's Description of the PIR (motion) sensor


PIR sensors are used to detect motion from pets/humanoids from about 20 feet away (possibly works on zombies, not guaranteed). This one has an adjustable delay before firing (approx 2-4 seconds), adjustable sensitivity and we include a 1 foot (30 cm) cable with a socket so you can easily reposition the sensor or mount it using the two holes on either side.

Runs on 5V-12V power (if you need to run it off of 3V you can do that by bypassing the regulator, but that means doing a bit of soldering). Digital signal output is 3.3V high/low. Sensing range is about 7 meters (120 degree cone).

Program an Uno with Raspberry Pi

The Raspberry Pi and Arduino are both popular boards, but each are better suited for different things. That said, why not combine the two?

In this guide, you will learn to connect an Arduino UNO to the Raspberry Pi and program it from an Arduino IDE within Raspbian. A Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ is used here but the instructions are the same for any other board. We will build a circuit using a breadboard, and write a sketch on the Arduino IDE that will have LEDs lighting up.

Once you've mastered the basics, you are one step closer to working on more advanced projects that requires the use of both boards. These could include a smart home, or smart jukebox among many other projects.
