Sound Activated Switch - Schematic Design

This is a sound activated switch circuit. It’s will turn on and turn off based on a loud sound such as clapping your hands. You can adjust the sensitivity (how loud of a sound will activate the circuit) from a pin drop to a Mack Truck Horn. Very practical for a variety of projects. Add a relay to turn on a light when your dog barks, or set of a siren when an intruder makes a loud noise.

Here the circuit diagram:

This circuit operates on 9 VDC battery or you may use a DC power supply instead of a battery. Electret microphone used to catch the sound (very sensitive). The sensitivity can be adjusted via potentiometer.
