Wailing Alarm Siren Circuit Using 555

This is a one kind of alarm that is produces warbling sound. The circuit use two 555 IC oscillator. In this alarm siren circuit, the first oscillator is employed to produce audio frequency. The second oscillator is employed to produce a modulating signal. This modulating signal make this alarm siren generates warbling sound. This is the figure of the circuit.

If you want try to change the capacitor C1, it will to change the warbling frequency. Using the component shown in the schematic diagram, this alarm siren gives 6 seconds warbling period. You can lower the C1 capacitor value to get higher warbling frequency, for example, you can try some values between 10 uF to 47 uF to get the suitable effect. This alarm siren circuit works with 5-15V power supply, but note that the 555 IC would suffer a significant self-heating when you use 12 volts or higher, and this may cause a shorter lifetime for the 555 IC chip.
