The LDR (Light Dependent Resistor) Sensor is a light-sensitive electronic component that changes its resistance based on the intensity of light falling on it. This sensor is commonly used in various electronic projects and devices to detect light levels and trigger actions accordingly.


  • Light Sensitivity: The resistance of the LDR sensor varies inversely with the intensity of light, providing accurate light detection.
  • Simple Design: The LDR sensor is compact and easy to integrate into electronic circuits due to its small size and straightforward operation.
  • Versatile Application: It can be used in a wide range of applications, from automatic lighting systems to sunlight detection in solar panels.
  • Cost-Effective Solution: LDR sensors are affordable and readily available, making them an economical choice for light sensing applications.


  1. The LDR sensor consists of a semiconductor material whose resistance decreases as the incident light intensity increases.
  2. When exposed to light, the photons energize the electrons in the semiconductor material, reducing its resistance.
  3. This change in resistance is then measured using a voltage divider circuit or other suitable methods to detect the light level.
  4. Based on the resistance value, the connected circuit can trigger actions such as turning on/off lights, adjusting display brightness, or activating alarms.


  • Automatic Lighting Systems: LDR sensors can be used to automatically turn on outdoor lights at dusk and turn them off at dawn.
  • Streetlight Control: They are employed in streetlight systems to adjust the brightness of the lights according to ambient light conditions.
  • Security Systems: LDR sensors are used in security systems to detect changes in ambient light levels, triggering alarms or surveillance cameras.
  • Solar Tracking: In solar panel installations, LDR sensors help track the position of the sun, optimizing energy capture throughout the day.
  • Robotics: LDR sensors are integrated into robotic systems for light-based navigation and object detection in various environments.
