Like normal door bells, after pushing the push button, the sound automatically stops after a time and three LEDs rhythmically glow.

About this project

I was looking for a project like normal door bells where after pushing the push button, the melody will start and automatically stop and LEDs rhythmic light up. However, none of the available projects on whole internet was complete. Some had only the push button the automatically melody off, some had LED without circuit design. I ended up to this:

Arduino Door Bell With Push Button and LED

I guess there will be people searching similar projects. I have the details of this Arduino project my technology blog, also code on Github and project on Fritzing, yet here are the schematic and code.

How to compile this code?

Like official Tone Melody. You need to copy paste the "main code" in one tab. Then open a new tab, name it as pitches.h and copy paste the content from our pitches.h file (otherwise you'll receive error related to pitches.h). Then normally proceed. Here is a screenshot (if you can not see the screenshot, then look at my Github project's how to compile sketch.png illustration). It is tricky for the beginners :

Main code:

#include "pitches.h"  //add note library
//notes in the melody
int melody[]={NOTE_C4, NOTE_G3, NOTE_G3, NOTE_A3, NOTE_G3, 0, NOTE_B3, NOTE_C4};
//digital pin 12 has a button attached to it. Give it an name
int buttonPin= 12;
const int rPin = 5;  //red LED
const int gPin = 4;  //green LED
const int bPin = 3;  //blue LED
int ledState = 0;
int ledOn = false;
//note durations. 4=quarter note / 8=eighth note
int noteDurations[]={4, 8, 8, 4, 4, 4, 4, 4};
void setup(){
 //make the button's pin input
 pinMode(buttonPin, INPUT);
 pinMode(rPin, OUTPUT);
 pinMode(gPin, OUTPUT);
 pinMode(bPin, OUTPUT);
}
void loop(){
 //read the input pin
 int buttonState = digitalRead(buttonPin);
 //if the button is pressed
 if (buttonState == 1){
   //iterate over the notes of the melody
   for (int thisNote=0; thisNote <8; thisNote++){
     // blink the three LEDs in sequence
     if (thisNote%3==0){    
       digitalWrite(rPin, HIGH);
       digitalWrite(gPin, LOW);
       digitalWrite(bPin, LOW);
     }
     else if (thisNote%3==1){    
       digitalWrite(rPin, LOW);
       digitalWrite(gPin, HIGH);
       digitalWrite(bPin, LOW);
     }
     else if (thisNote%3==2){    
       digitalWrite(rPin, LOW);
       digitalWrite(gPin, LOW);
       digitalWrite(bPin, HIGH);
     }
     //to calculate the note duration, take one second. Divided by the note type
     int noteDuration = 1000 / noteDurations [thisNote];
     tone(8, melody [thisNote], noteDuration);
     //to distinguish the notes, set a minimum time between them
     //the note's duration +30% seems to work well
     int pauseBetweenNotes = noteDuration * 1.30;
     delay(pauseBetweenNotes);
     //stop the tone playing
     noTone(8);
   }
 }
}
