    Hi,

    I'm an artist, and I'm very new to electronics and would like some help in building/designing a circuit for an artwork.

    I want to build a device which records 15 secs or so of human voice, and then plays this recording when motion is detected.

    This much is easy enough. However..

    I want this circuit, once it has been tripped, to then turn off temporarily for approx 20 mins and then 're-arm' ready for another motion. etc.

    I have circuit diagrams for the first part, but have none for the second part, nor any idea how to combine the two if I did. Any help would be greatly appreciated! I plan to build a few of these, so I prefer cheaper parts.

    Also, I have been able to find very cheap electronic toys which fulfill the first part of the circuit. Would it be not too difficult to add the timer on to such a circuit, or is it easier starting from scratch and building everything myself?

    Cheers!
    Richard
