Introduction: Double Clap LED Switch
What It Does
Using assets from Abid, I created a double clap LED light switch, using an Arduino Leonardo, a breadboard, a few cables, a simple microphone, and an LED. When you clap twice, the led turns on. Clap twice again, and the LED light will turn off.
This is a project I did that I wanted to use for my house, but unfortunately, I had to do it for school...
Using this simple clap switch, you could hook up a system where if you clap twice, you can choose to do an array of things, including but not limited to:
- The lights in your house
- Monitor backlights
- Meme Reviews without the editing
Step 1: How to Make It - Step One: Materials
For this project, the very basic materials you will need is:
- An Arduino board of any type, for this project I used an Arduino Leonardo,
- An Arduino breadboard,
- A microphone, it can be a 3-pin or 4-pin mic, as long as it has an analog output, which is what I used for this project.
- 8 wires, usually included with an Arduino kit,
- A LED light of any color.
- A resistor (for the LED light)
Step 2: How to Make It - Step 2: Physical Construction
It should look a little something like this...
>>>DO NOTE THE BUTTON DOES NOTHING, IT'S A LEFTOVER FROM MY PREVIOUS PROJECT<<<
Step 1: Connect one wire from the 5v pin to the + pin on the breadboard, and the wire from the ground pin to the - pin on the breadboard.
Step 2: Connect up a simple LED light circuit, a diagram is shown above.
Step 3: Wire up the microphone, a diagram is shown above, as well as pictures of the mic and the finished circuit.
ta da you done
