  • poor documentation, but works ok, and at least comes with a cable

    posted by xtofury on 14:16:35 G4T 22/04/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Works in analog mode. Returns either 0 or 1 in digital mode.

    Cons: Poor documentation, had to go to a blacklisted website (bell wifi blocks the address printed on the board) to look for documentation. I only just now discovered this is an analog sensor after reading the comments. thank god for that! I'd given up on this thing. Cable was included, which was nice for a change because nothing else seems to come with them.

    Other: worth the $4

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Cheap Easy to wire up - just do power, ground and signal to analog input on Arduino I got this up and running along with my DHT11 temp/humidity sensor and uploading info to the web via the Cosm website (its pretty good)

    Cons: It sits up a bit funny, okay for random prototyping but you would need to modify it to get a nice looking thing if you were looking at it often

    Other: I really liked it - easy to use and reliable, shows up trends well.

  • Good and simple light sensor

    posted by Eridanos on 16:17:31 G3T 29/03/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: The sensor does what it supposed to do, measure the intensity of the light. I connected it on an analogue port of my arduino mega board and use a simple program.

    Cons: In my current sensor the data starts to clip when the input is saturated. Only this occurs at the value of 780 or so. However the datapoints can go up to 1023 so there is still space in the system.

    Other: Bang for the buck to measure the light intensity on an arduino.
