Doorbell-Controlled Porch light

Doorbell-Controlled Porch light

Here is a simple circuit doorbell control porch light using timer IC (NE555),can be used in doorbell in order to get indication of porch light with door alarm if any one rings the door bell.

Circuit Description of door bell control porch light

The circuit of doorbell control porch light is build around timer IC NE555 (IC2) and is here used as astable multivibrator. The output at pin 3 goes high of IC1 when trigger is given to pin 2 from power supply. Here transistor T1 is used as relay driver transistor which energized relay when output from pin 3 of IC1 is high. After relay energized AC current flow via N/O terminal and switch on the porch light.

Triac1 with Diac1 hear is used for switch in order to glow porch light during night and switch it off at day with the help of preset VR1 and LDR1.

Note:- Here the power source of 230V AC is replaced by 110V with replacing transformer having primary 110V and secondary 12V. Rest of the circuit of door bell controll porch light is same.
