Smoke Detector Circuit – Fire Alarm

Smoke Detector Circuit – Fire Alarm

This circuit uses a very simple approach to detecting smoke in the air. Quite simply, it uses a bulb as a light source, and an LDR (Light Dependent Resistor) as a light detector. As fire smoke comes between the bulb and LDR, the resistance of the LDR changes, which in turn trigger an alarm.
This probably is not an ideal approach given that ambient light levels are likely to cause false alarms, however it is an interesting experiment. Just please don’t set any fires while experimenting. And please don’t rely on it as a replacement for a real fire alarm device.
