smoke detector

first thing...get some backgorund info on LDR (Light dependent resistors) or IR (Infra red sensors)

coz most of them are used....when smoke fills the chamber in which the sensor is placed the resistance changes....accordinly u can turn on the alarm...dont forget the helped button..if this post helps....!!
