FYI, I just update the code on this page. you will find it to be much cleaner than previous versions.
First, unless you grabbed my code from GitHub, you should redownload the code from this page: I JUST updated this page with the latest code.
Put all 3 files into a folder named Monster_In_A_Box in your Arduino projects folder. Then double click Monster_In_A_Box.ino to open it with the Arduino IDE. When the IDE opens you should have 3 tabs "Monster_In_A_Box", "MonsterSounds.h" and "MonsterSounds".
At this point, you should be able to compile and upload it to your Arduino.
Remember: you need a Wave Shield for the sounds to work
Guys, You may have figured this out already but I found that Action_2 was causing false triggers and messing with the PIR on my box. If you are not going to use a switch/button to trigger the wake cycle and just use the PIR I would just remove Action_2 from the code completely.
Even better, grab my lastest release from GitHub (v4.0). The code is more clearly written and the PIR works better. Pay attention to my note about the relays though - you have to change how you wire the devices to them.
