Light Detector circuit

This circuit give low level output, when exist enough lighting, that is a detector of light. It can give, say ,command turn on somebodies lights, when fall the dark. His exit is compatible with TTL level and it give low logic level, when phototransistor Q1, detect light. With adjustable resistor RV1, we can regulate the sensitivity that it will have.
