Simple Darkness Activated Alarm

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on Simple Darkness Activated Alarm

Most darkness activated alarms employ opamps and some logic ICs. Here, a less expensive approach is shown based on the eternal 555, this time in monostable multivibrator mode. Components R2 and C1 represent a one-second network. When the LDR (light dependent resistor) is in the dark, its resistance is high,… Read more »
