I'm very much a beginner in the electronics area, but I've been playing around with resistors, led's and batteries - so I understand those basics.
Now I want to apply what I've learned!
I want to make a indicator LED light when the deadbolt to my door is locked. I've made a (ugly) graphic to show what I'm thinking.
The basic idea is that the deadbolt closes the circuit. What I don't know is how to create and attach the connectors to the door jam. Is there any circuit pieces like this i could start from? What do i need to do to make it safe? Do I need to attach a small plate to the end of the deadbolt to properly close the loop?
Thanks for any help!
