    What would you use for the following description (thyristor or transistor)?

    You need to make a circuit that is similar to that of an alarm. The scenario is that a family has just gone on vacation and have turned on their alarm. Their alarm works so that when a motion sensor is activated it causes a loud siren (constant barking) to go off; the purpose is to try and scare away robbers. My question is what would you use to hook up to the input device (the motion sensor), to turn on the output device (the barking siren), a thyristor or a transistor?
