Which shock sensor/vibraiton sensor should I use?

Hello, as a beginner, I'd like to make a system that controls my desk lamp with a shock/vibration sensor and I do not know what kind of sensor should I use, appreciate if you help.

Do you want shock/vibration or do you want an audio clap sensor? Shock/Vibration senses just that shock and vibration and is affixed to the desk for example, audio senses audio in the surroundings like a "clap" sound.


Well I'd like to give it a try for both of them :slight_smile: which models would you recommend for audio and shock sensing?

You might need to buy and test a few different sensors to determine what works best for you. Some possible examples are...
Vibrating Sensor
Piezo disk
