The fear of theft and burglary always annoys many people. When lock and keys
become less safe, one can seek the help of electronic security systems.
Such a portable security system is described here.
This electronic setup auto activated whenever the intruder enters to the
unauthorized no entry area. It auto activate the landline number and redial the last
dialed number from the conventional telephone. All we need is to do minor
changes to activate this telephone as it works as to become auto dialer circuit.
Thus whenever the intruder enters to the area, it activates the sensor circuit
of either sound activation or infrared light beam obstruction circuit, the redial
circuit become active and give a ring tone to the receiving end. It may be a mobile
phone or any landline phone or even police control room.
I hereby declare that this submission is own work and that, to the best of my
knowledge and belief, it contains no material previously published or written by
another person nor material which to a substantial extend has been accepted for the

1. Introduction Of Project
Project title is ―AUTOMATIC ROOM LIGHT CONTROLLER
WITH BIDIRECTIONAL VISITOR COUNTER ―.
The objective of this project is to make a controller based model
to count number of persons visiting particular room and accordingly
light up the room. Here we can use sensor and can know present
number of persons.
In today’s world, there is a continuous need for automatic
appliances with the increase in standard of living, there is a sense of
urgency for developing circuits that would ease the complexity of
Also if at all one wants to know the number of people present in
room so as not to have congestion. This circuit proves to be helpful.
This Project ―Automatic Room Light Controller with Visitor
Counter using Microcontroller is a reliable circuit that takes over the
task of controlling the room lights as well us counting number of
persons/ visitors in the room very accurately. When somebody enters
into the room then the counter is incremented by one and the light in the
room will be switched ON and when any one leaves the room then the
counter is decremented by one. The light will be only switched OFF
until all the persons in the room go out. The total number of persons
inside the room is also displayed on the seven segment displays.
The microcontroller does the above job. It receives the signals
from the sensors, and this signal is operated under the control of
software which is stored in ROM. Microcontroller AT89S52
continuously monitor the Infrared Receivers, When any object pass
through the IR Receiver's then the IR Rays falling on the receiver are
obstructed , this obstruction is sensed by the Microcontroller

BLOCK DIAGRAM AND ITS
2.1 Basic Block Diagram
Fig. 2.1 Basic Block Diagram
2.2 Block Diagram Description
The basic block diagram of the bidirectional visitor
counter with automatic light controller is shown in the above
figure. Mainly this block diagram consist of the following
1. Power Supply
2. Entry and Exit sensor circuit
3. AT 89S52 micro-controller
4. Relay driver circuit
1. Power Supply:Here we used +12V and +5V dc power supply. The
main function of this block is to provide the required amount
of voltage to essential circuits. +12 voltage is given. +12V is
given to relay driver. To get the +5V dc power supply we
have used here IC 7805, which provides the +5V dc
regulated power supply.
2. Enter and Exit Circuits:This is one of the main part of our project. The main
intention of this block is to sense the person. For sensing the
person and light we are using the light dependent register
(LDR). By using this sensor and its related circuit diagram
we can count the persons.
3. 89S52 Microcontroller:It is a low-power, high performance CMOS 8-bit
microcontroller with 8KB of Flash Programmable and
Erasable Read Only Memory (PEROM). The device is
memory technology and is compatible with the MCS-51TM
instruction set and pin out. The on-chip Flash allows the
program memory to be reprogrammed in-system or by a
combining a versatile 8-bit CPU with Flash on a monolithic
hip, the Atmel AT89S52 is a powerful
Microcontroller, which provides a highly flexible and
4. Relay Driver Circuit:-
This block has the potential to drive the various
controlled devices. In this block mainly we are using the
transistor and the relays. One relay driver circuit we are using
to control the light. Output signal from AT89S52 is given to
the base of the transistor, which we are further energizing the
particular relay. Because of this appropriate device is selected
and it do its allotted function.
There are two main parts of the circuits.
1. Transmission Circuits (Infrared LEDs)
2. Receiver Circuit (Sensors)
1. Transmission Circuit:
Fig. 3.3 Transmitter circuit
This circuit diagram shows how a 555 timer IC is
configured to function as a basic monostable multivibrator.
A monostable multivibrator is a timing circuit that changes
state once triggered, but returns to its original state after a
certain time delay. It got its name from the fact that only one
of its output states is stable. It is also known as a 'one-shot'.
In this circuit, a negative pulse applied at pin 2 triggers
an internal flip-flop that turns off pin 7's discharge transistor,
allowing C1 to charge up through
R1. At the same time, the flip-flop brings the output
(pin 3) level to 'high'. When capacitor C1 as charged up to
about 2/3 Vcc, the flip-flop is triggered once again, this time
making the pin 3 output 'low' and turning on pin 7's discharge
transistor, which discharges C1 to ground. This circuit, in
effect, produces a pulse at pin 3 whose width t is just the
product of R1 and C1, i.e., t=R1C1.
IR Transmission circuit is used to generate the
modulated 36 kHz IR signal. The IC555 in the transmitter
side is to generate 36 kHz square wave. Adjust the preset in
the transmitter to get a 38 kHz signal at the o/p. around 1.4K
we get a 38 kHz signal. Then you point it over the sensor and
its o/p will go low when it senses the IR signal of 38 kHz.
2. Receiver Circuit:
Fig. 3.4 Receiver circuit
The IR transmitter will emit modulated 38 kHz IR
signal and at the receiver we use TSOP1738 (Infrared
Sensor). The output goes high when the there is an
interruption and it return back to low after the time period
determined by the capacitor and resistor in the circuit. I.e.
around 1 second. CL100 is to trigger the IC555 which is
configured as monostable multivibrator. Input is given to the
Port 1 of the microcontroller. Port 0 is used for the 7Segment display purpose. Port 2 is used for the Relay Turn
On and Turn off Purpose.LTS 542 (Common Anode) is used
for 7-Segment display. And that time Relay will get Voltage
and triggered so light will get voltage and it will turn on. And
when counter will be 00 that time Relay will be turned off.
Reset button will reset the microcontroller.

4.1 Procedure Followed While Designing:
In the beginning I designed the circuit in DIPTRACE software.
Dip trace is a circuit designing software. After completion of the
designing circuit I prepared the layout.
Then I programmed the microcontroller using TOPVIEW
SIMULATOR software using hex file.
Then soldering process was done. After completion of the
soldering process I tested the circuit.
Still the desired output was not obtained and so troubleshooting
was done. In the process of troubleshooting I found the circuit aptly
soldered and connected and hence came to conclusion that there was
error in programming section which was later rectified and the
desired results were obtained.

Description of Components
4.3.1 Microcontroller AT89S52:
The AT89S52 is a low-power, high-performance CMOS 8bit microcontroller with 8K bytes of in-system programmable
Flash memory. The device is manufactured using Atmel’s highdensity nonvolatile memory technology and is compatible with the
Industry-standard 80C51 instruction set and pin out. The on-chip
Flash allows the program memory to be reprogrammed in-system
or by a conventional nonvolatile memory pro- grammar. By
combining a versatile 8-bit CPU with in-system programmable
Flash on a monolithic chip, the Atmel AT89S52 is a powerful
microcontroller which provides a highly-flexible and cost-effective
solution to many embedded control applications.
The AT89S52 provides the following standard features: 8K
bytes of Flash, 256 bytes of RAM, 32 I/O lines, Watchdog timer,
two data pointers, three 16-bit timer/counters, a six-vector twolevel interrupt architecture, a full duplex serial port, on-chip
oscillator, and clock circuitry. In addition, the AT89S52 is
designed with static logic for operation down to zero frequency
and supports two software selectable power saving modes. The
Idle Mode stops the CPU while allowing the RAM, timer/counters,
serial port, and interrupt system to continue functioning. The
Power-down mode saves the RAM con- tents but freezes the
oscillator, disabling all other chip functions until the next interrupt
or hardware reset.

A single pole dabble throw (SPDT) relay is connected
to port RB1 of the microcontroller through a driver transistor.
The relay requires 12 volts at a current of around 100ma,
which cannot provide by the microcontroller. So the driver
transistor is added. The relay is used to operate the external
solenoid forming part of a locking device or for operating
any other electrical devices. Normally the relay remains off.
As soon as pin of the microcontroller goes high, the relay
operates. When the relay operates and releases. Diode D2 is
the standard diode on a mechanical relay to prevent back
EMF from damaging Q3 when the relay releases. LED L2
indicates relay on.
If the sensor 1 is interrupted first then the microcontroller
will look for the sensor 2. And if it is interrupted then the
microcontroller will increment the count and switch on the
relay, if it is first time interrupted.
If the sensor 2 is interrupted first then the microcontroller
will look for the sensor 1. And if it is interrupted then the
microcontroller will decrement the count.
When the last person leaves the room then counter goes to 0
and that time the relay will turn off. And light will be turn
