Automatic Street Light Controller Circuit Diagram

This circuit is an automatic street light controller. Sensors used to detect changes in light is LDR (Light dependent resistor), the working principle of Light dependent resistor is exposed to light when the resistance value of LDR great, but if not exposed to light or dark then the resistance value of LDR.

LDR is a special type of resistance whose value depends on the brightness of the light which is falling on it. It has resistance of about 1 mega ohm when in total darkness, but a resistance of only about 5k ohms when brightness illuminated. It responds to a large part of light spectrum.
When light falls on the LDR then its resistance decreases which results in increase of the voltage at pin 2 of the IC 555. IC 555 has got comparator inbuilt, which compares between the input voltage from pin2 and 1/3rd of the power supply voltage. When input falls below 1/3rd then output is set high otherwise it is set low. Since in brightness, input voltage rises so we obtain no positive voltage at output of pin 3 to drive relay.

Complete Room Securty System Circuit diagram

This simple circuit is called room security system circuit. The main purpose of this circuit is to secure your room in night. You need not any security guard. When any unwanted person wants to enter your room in night then this circuit raised alarm. On the other benefit, it is always activated on load shedding. 

There are five separates parts in this circuit – regulated power supply, relay driver, door switching, alarm system and audio amplifier. First section is regulated power supply. The output of IC 7809 is regulated +9Volt which is converted from 9Volt unregulated power supply. Capacitors are used for removing ripple. A full wave 9 volt transformer is connected in the input of this power section.
The second part is relay driver. Q1 transistor is used for driving relay. When the Q1 transistor is forward bias then the relay is ON and the total circuit gets positive voltage from ac source. In the time of load shedding relay is deactivated and the total circuit gets power from 6Volt Battery.

The third part is door switching. When C1 capacitor’s two terminals are short, transistor Q2 is reversed biased. So Q2 transistor is OFF. When C1 capacitor’s two terminals are open, transistor Q2 is forward biased. So Q2 transistor is ON. For this reason IC UM66 is ON and it generates music which is feed another two transistors Q3 and Q4. A speaker is connected with collector of the transistor Q4 as circuit diagram.
