Keeping this in consideration, how does a light activated circuit work?
Principle behind the Circuit The main principle of this circuit is based on the working of the LDR Sensor i.e. the Light Dependent Resistor and to switch ON or OFF the light based on the intensity of illumination the LDR is subjected to. This property of the LDR is used with a comparator circuit.
Also Know, how does automatic light sensor work? Basic automatic headlights work through sensors which detect how much light is there outside. These sensors are located on the dash of the vehicle mostly. The headlights turn on when the sensors detect a certain level of darkness (darkness means the level of light).
Subsequently, question is, what do you mean by LDR?
An LDR is a component that has a (variable) resistance that changes with the light intensity that falls upon it. This allows them to be used in light sensing circuits. A typical LDR. LDR Circuit Symbol.
Where are light sensors used?
Brightness Control. Light sensors have a lot of uses. The most common use in our daily lives is in cell phones and tablets. Most portable personal electronics now have ambient light sensors used to adjust brightness.
