What happens inside a CLAPPER:
it has an audio amplifier that has a limiter on the input. Any audio signals that are below a particular threshold will not get through.
When the sound pressure level gets above a certain level it triggers the amplifier which is set to clip â switch on.
This on signal is the trigger to turn on the lights.
