Introduction: Dark Sensor ( Light Sensor / Automatic Street Light )
Here is my new simple Electronics project about Automatic Street Light Control System or Dark Sensor.
it is a simple and powerful concept , which uses transistor ( BC 547 NPN) as a switch to switch ON and OFF the street light system automatically .
It automatically switches ON lights when the sunlight goes below the visible region of our eyes. ( e.g in evening after Sunset ).
it automatically switches OFF lights when Sunlight fall on it ( e.g in morning ) , by using a sensor called LDR (Light Dependent Resistor) which senses the light just like our eyes.
Needs no manual operation for switching ON and OFF...

Step 3: Circuit Diagram
Step 4: Finsih... Uuuhuuuu... :p
The simple circuit is ready for testing now . Connect 9v battery terminals to the circuit as show in fig and see the output . As you block light falling on Light dependent resistor (LDR), the LED glows .
