It uses resistors, capacitors, a transistor, microchip, microphone and a relay, and will help you learn how to connect a circuit. This circuit contains many different components, and gives a great opportunity to see them all in action. The microphone changes output depending on the sound level. The kit contains terminals that connect to a device with a relay to switch on and off (max switching voltage 24V / 3A). This kit requires a soldering iron and solder and may require wire cutters.

How easy is this kit to solder?
Simple to solder, this kit is ideal for beginners learning about electronics or for those looking for a trigger to add to other projects. Putting the kit together is just the start of your adventure. An enclosure (not included) for the kit could protect the electronics and make sure the sensor, input or outputs are not blocked. This kit requires DC 12V 150mA power supply (not included) and comes with a power jack. This kit is not recommended for outdoor use.
