” Clap Switch has the ability to turn ON/OFF any electrical component by connecting the output of the circuit to a relay switch. Here we are going to make a clap switch with few components with very well explanations. Compared to all other clap switches, Here we use a single transistor and few resistor along with ic555 and ic4017 counter. since this circuit is accurate, I could switch ON/OFF the LED 4 times a second. The 4 times is only limited by my capacity of clapping in a second. This Instructables is mainly focussing on beginners
so…
let’s get started…”
