Applications of LDRs
There are many applications for Light Dependent Resistors. These include:
The most obvious application for an LDR is to automatically turn on a light at a certain light level. An example of this could be a street light or a garden light.
Camera shutter control
LDRs can be used to control the shutter speed on a camera. The LDR would be used to measure the light intensity which then adjusts the camera shutter speed to the appropriate level.
