This paper represents the implementation of a clap-activated switch device that can be used in many real-time applications. This design consists of various hardware devices such as Arduino, battery, and relay. By giving the appropriate connections according to the usage, this device can be developed and implemented. This clap-activated switch is not only applied to one appliance but also can be applied to multiple devices like Lights, fans, TV, AC, etc. In this fast-forward generation, many prefer smart work to hard work. Arduino sketch code is also required to run the required application and dump it into the Arduino board. This can be implemented anywhere in the home or office. This is mainly useful for old people who are unable to walk or disabled persons who cannot walk through switches to ON and OFF the required appliances like lights, fans, and TV. Even for children who can not catch the switches when they are alone at night then this will be very useful for them when their parents or caretakers are not available for them. The main aim is to activate this clap-activated switch for different appliances in the house or in an office with different modulation of sounds using audio frequency. This can be done using sound sensing sensors. This is the main concept of this paper working on.
