    Retired Product

    This product has been retired and kept here for reference.

    This sensor kit is for making a wireless light sensor.  Combined with our LLAP firmware makes getting remote light level readings as easy as sending a tweet.  The main functions are:

    • Monitor light levels remotely (with the XRF option everything you need for a self contained light level sensor in one kit)
    • Easy communication (just add an XRF to the board and an SRF-Stick to your PC for instant communication)
    • Log data to the cloud (use one of the many cloud based loggers of information)

    The sensor is encased in a smart, strong black enclosure. In order to wireless communicate with it you will need an XRF loaded with the correct firmware.  The firmware can be found here for free though you will need a serial connection sush as the Ciseco Explorer Plus or similar to reprogram it.


    • Compact and easily deployable
    • Fits in the matchbox size ABS box provided
    • Each pin of the XRF is broken out onto the outer edge for easy access and development
