Automatic light activated switch circuit

Posted on Feb 7, 2014

The circuit can be used for switching OFF a particular lamp or group of lamps in response to the varying ambient light levels. The unit once built can be used for switching OFF a lamp when dawn breaks and switching it ON when dusk sets in. The power supply is a standard transformer, bridge, capacitor network, which supplies a clean DC to the circui

t for executing the proposed actions. The LDR must be placed outside the box, meaning its sensing surface should be exposed toward the ambient area from where the light level is required to be sensed. The circuit can be used as an automatic street light controller system or a simple light activated switch.
