Circuits are drawn using symbols instead of drawing of the real equipment. This is to make the drawings easier.
There are special symbols for everything that may be required in a circuit. See the picture on the left for these.
These are combined together to make circuit diagrams.
One of the most important parts of a circuit is the switch.
Watch the video below and see how to make a circuit with a switch for use in an alarm.
