The product includes an on-board voltage regulator which gives it an operating voltage range of 3.3 ~ 5.5V. It is compatible with low-voltage MCUs (both 3.3V and 5V logic). To make it compatible with a Raspberry Pi, an ADC converter is required.
This sensor is compatible with our 3-pin "Gravity" interface, which means it can be directly connected to the Gravity I/O expansion shield.
The following image shows an example project - a device that notifies you when a plant needs to be watered.
