 Normally the turning on/off of the light is done manually using a switch whenever
there is need of a light. But here we have designed a system where there is
automatic turning on and off of the light whenever required.
 When darkness is detected then the sensor circuit gets activated and switches ON
automatically and when there is other source of light during daytime, the street light
gets OFF.
 The main purpose of this project is to switch ON and OFF street lights without manual
 By using this system energy consumption is reduced.
 By using this project as the basic principle we can design centralized intelligent
system for the perfect usage of streetlights in any place.
 An extra feature is that you can run this system for your desired interval of

Nowadays, human has become too busy and he is

unable to find time even to switch the lights on or off. This
can be seen more effectively in the case of street lights.
The present system is like, the street lights will be switched
on in the evening before the sun sets and they are
switched off the next day morning after there is sufficient
light on the roads

part(1)>>Left circuit
 IC is an operational amplifier. Pins 2 and 3 of these IC are used to compare the voltage and
give us an output as high or low depending on the voltages at the input pins.
 In this circuit, LDR and 10KΩ Resistor form one potential divider pair, which is used to provide
a variable voltage at the non-inverting input (that is Pin 3). The second potential divider is
built around inverting input (Pin 2) with the help of 10KΩ Potentiometer, which will supply half
of the supply voltage to inverting pin.
 As we know the property of LDR that during the day time, its resistance is low, the voltage at
the non-inverting input (i.e. pin 3) is higher than the voltage at the inverting input (pin 2).
Hence, the output at the pin 1 is high. As a result, the relay is OFF and the LED (or the bulb)
will not glow.
 But in dimness or at night time, we know that resistance of LDR is high. Hence, the voltage
at non-inverting input pin 3 of the IC LM358 decreases than the inverting input pin 2. As a
result, the output pin 1 moves to low state, which further makes the relay to activate and the
LED or bulb associated to it will glow.
Explanation of timer(right circuit)

 Pin 3 of IC timer produces output,some times High and sometimes LOW.

 Period of High or Low is found by (T=1.1*R*C ).
 We change this period by changing variable resistor’s value.
 Observed timings are:
1) 100k >>> 1 Minute 2) 300k >>> 2 Minute And SO ON………..
 When pin 3 gives high, Potential is developed across our right Circuit and when it is low,
potential is zero.
 Circuit runs for High Period and not for low period.
