Let’s begin!

A Light Dependent Resistor (LDR) is a special type of resistor whose resistance value changes depending on the amount of light falling on it. It can be used to measure the amount of ambient light present.

We use a digital LDR module. It has an on-board potentiometer that is used to set a threshold. If the light in the room is above a threshold, it outputs a HIGH signal. Else, it gives a LOW output.
