LowCost Spectrum Analyzer

Posted on Feb 5, 2014

This circuit uses a very simple approach to detecting smoke in the air. Quite simply, it uses a bulb as a light source, and an LDR (Light Dependent Resistor) as a light detector. As fire smoke comes between the bulb and LDR, the resistance of the LDR changes, which in turn trigger an alarm. This probably isn`t an ideal approach given that ambient

light levels are likely to cause false alarms, however it is an interesting experiment. Just please don`t set any fires while experimenting. And please don`t rely on it as a replacement for a real fire alarm device.
