DIY || Clap Controlled Room Light

Introduction: DIY || Clap Controlled Room Light

Ever wondered to control your Home Appliances with a CLAP? Then you are at right place!

Here, I am going to show you how you can control any Home Appliance be it - Room Lights, Fan, Television or Audio System with just a Clap.

This project is based on the Clap ON - Clap OFF circuit which turns the load (here, Home Appliance) ON on first clap and turns it OFF on second clap.
