Introduction: Dark Activated Relay Circuit
Automatic Light Activated Relay Circuit is depend with ambient light. easly this device will turn on the relay when the LDR recive ambient light.This project is very useful for us, example for your automatic house lamp, or your gardening project. For the gardening project, you should enlighten the plant with yellow light for the photosynthesis.

Step 1: Things That We Need
- 100K Variable Resistor
- Relay 6v ( depends with your input voltage)
- LDR or Transistor
- 4148 Diode (not important, it’s okay if you are not using this)
- 2 Terminal Blocks
- PCB (The artwork)
- Battery 6v-12v
Step 2: Analyzing Circuit
- You can also replace LDR with the phototransistor like the picture above
If you are still confusing, please comment!
Step 3: How to Make PCB
Step 4: The PCB Artwork
this is using Circuit Wizard software file
Download the software: Circuit Wizard
Step 5: How Does It Work
You can see the different between this 2 pictures.
When the light is high(intensity), nothing happen with the output
But, if the light low(intensity), the output is available
Note: red is +, green is -
Step 6: Application
Use this sensor as a automatic lighting in your garden or for your robot project, maybe as aobstacle sensor
