LDR controller motor drive with turn on delay
When the the light level drops and the LDR resistance goes high enough, V(dark) rises.
U1_schmitt_trig sharpens up and inverts the transition on V(dark) so V(notdark) is low while V(dark) is high. After a slight delay through R6 and C3, this holds one input of the NOR gate low.
U2_monostable is triggered by differentiating the falling edge V(notdark) so V(mono) goes high for 5s, holding V(motor) low.
After 5s, V(mono) goes low again so V(motor) goes high and turns the motor driver, M2, on until the light level increases enough for V(notdark) to rise again and so force V(motor) low.
