connecting a lamp

Description: This is a dependent DIY kit module that has to be used with a clap_switch available at This kit DOES NOT work independently as a clap switch. It is useless without this_clap_switch_kit. So, you need to order that kit also.

You can read about the clap-switch at this link.


The relay module is operated by this clap switch

The relay module comes as a pack of parts kit and is easily assembled if you can follow the silkscreen indicators (labels) and have beginning experience with a soldering iron. You will need to read the resistor bands or use a multimeter to determine the resistor sizes. Both the kits operate with 9V batteries.

Step 10- Solder 5V relay and your kit is ready for blog


  • A DIY kit module that works with this_clap_switch_kit. It is useless without the clap switch.
  • >Operates a 100-240V lamp with clap/loud sound.
  • Supply voltage: 6V-9V. The same power supply can be used for this_clap_switch_kit.
  • There are two supply input points: a DC barrel and a screw terminal. You can use one of the points to power up the kit.
  • Dimension: 48.26mm x 49.53mm.
  • Relay specification: Activation voltage: 5V DC. Controls appliances operating at 10A 250VAC, 10A 125VAC, 10A 30VDC, 10A 28VDC. Suitable for Europe, North America, Australia and New Zealand.
