Does the fridge light really turn off? Now you can find out!

 

This tiny light-sensor module uses the very-reliable TEMT6000 light sensor, which gives consistent and repeatable readings even between different units - unlike cheapie light-dependent resistors, which can vary dramatically in their sensitivity.

Adapted to the human eye response, this silicon light sensor outputs a voltage proportional to incoming light. Perfect for measuring light levels both indoors and out, security sensing, and human feedback like waving a hand over the sensor. Trivial to connect to your Arduino using an analog input, and you don't need any special drivers or libraries to use it: a simple "analogRead()" call in your sketch is all it takes.
  • +/-60° field of view
  • Supply voltage: 3.0 to 5.5VDC
  • Dimensions: 16(W) x 12(H) x 4(D)mm

The module includes mounting holes suitable for M3 or 1/8" bolts, and a flat rear face so you can easily glue it to any surface.
