Arduino: Alarm clock with light sensor and ON / OFF buttons.

October 23, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

This project refers to an Arduino sketch that implements a simple alarm clock using a light sensor, a piezo speaker, two buttons for functions such as ON, OFF and an LED as the function indicator. When the alarm is in OFF state, then it carries no real operation (just turns off the function indicator), and when in ON state, then it turns on the function indicator and examines whether there is sufficient ambient light (via the light sensor) to produces a musical tune with piezo speaker. This process is repeated continuously if there is sufficient light until the button OFF is pressed.

Below is a picture of the project:
