A relay is an electromagnetic switch. In other words it is activated when a current is applied to it. Normally a relay is used in a circuit as a type of switch (as you will see below). There are different types of relays and they operate at different voltages. When you build your circuit you need to consider the voltage that will trigger it.


This simple circuit activates the relay only when the LDR is dark (covered). This could be used as part of an automatic animal feeder. For instance, if the animal was fed at night the circuit above would activate the relay. A second circuit, connected to the other side of the relay releases food into a dish.
