    Hi,

    What sort of components do i need in order to make a sound sensitive switch. i.e. clap and light turns on for a moment (until sound stops). Similar to this linky

    Is there any place to buy them cheap (a couple of dollars) or where can i get instructions/parts to make it.

    Thanks

    The Jaycar kit will be one of the cheapest and easiest options.

    There are plenty of circuits available, just do a Google.
    Here is one that I found.
    Another, another, another...

    The JayCar kit is about $12, if that's the cheapest, it would be better just to go with the sound sensitive switch module from PCCG. They are the same thing right?

    yep probably buying one from pccasegear seems to be the go except for the $10 postage fee :Paranoid:

    what are you planning to use it for?
