0 Light Alarm Circuit

When there is no light, the light dependent resistor or LDR have a very high resistance, several Mega-ohms. When there is illumination in the surrounding, the LDR resistance drops to several kilo-ohms, this time it will activate transistor Q1. When Q1 is on, the musical UM66T IC will turn on and will generate sounds to the speaker via transistor Q2. You can use 3V to 3.6V battery as a power supply.
