Light Operated Relay Circuit using LDR / Photoresistor

Light Operated Relay Circuit using LDR / Photoresistor

Light Operated Relay Circuit using LDR.

The LDR varies its value (ohms) depending on the amount of light that illuminates it. The more light less resistance and less light more resistance, A potentiometer is used to control the light level that activate the relay

Light detector circuit using transistors and relay

Light detector circuit using transistors and relay

This light detector circuit activates a lighting device through a relay when the intensity of the daylight is no longer sufficient.

It can be used to illuminate the main entrance of the house, a showcase that must be kept lit at night, an unsafe area at night, etc.

Light sensitive alarm using LDR

Light sensitive alarm using LDR

This light sensitive alarm is very simple and works using, as main components, a transistor, an LDR and a relay.

The alarm activates when the illumination level changes from almost total darkness to a moderately high illumination level. When this happens the alarm is locked and the alarm signal, be it a light or a sound, remains active.
