Light operated switch


To make light operated switch, you need to know these circuits:

a. Toggle switch

b. Dark sensor using two transistors

c. How to use a relay

– You need to keep LDR in dark case so that the relay remains active all the time(Pole connects to NO).

– When you put light on LDR, the relay switches off and Pole connects to NC; this operation toggles 555 timer and switches on the LED D1.

-When you put light again on LDR,  LED D1 switches off.
