They had prepared a project which automatically switches light on and off based on presence or absence of a person inside a room. The students used components like PIR Sensor, LDR, Arduino UNO, Resistors and a relay

This project will help to prevent unnecessary use of electricity. When anyone enter in the room or present in the room and the natural light is not available then the light will be turned on. But if natural light is available and if anybody is present or not the light will not be turned on. The pir sensor used in project helps to detect motion in the room which indicates that anybody is present in the room. LDR is used to detect natural light is available or not. It can be applied to  control of the devices like fan, lights etc.
