Transient Clap Switch Circuit is the circuit which turns ON with a clap sound. The output remains ON for some time and then turns OFF automatically.
The time of activity can be controlled by varying the value of capacitance of Capacitor. More the capacitance, more is the time for which the output remains ON.
A condenser microphone is used as a sensor. The trigger can be clap/snap or any other sound capable of activating the circuit.
Here, I will show you two different ways to make transient clap automated circuit :
