Introduction

This is a BH1750 light intensity sensor breakout board with a 16-bit ADC built-in which can directly output a digital signal, there is no need for complicated calculations. This is more accurate and easier to use than a simple photoresistor which only outputs a voltage that needs to be calculated in order to obtain meaningful data. With the BH1750 Light Sensor intensity can be directly measured by the lux scale, without needing to make calculations. If the sensitivity of this sensor (1+ lux) is not enough, consider adding a reflector or using a different sensor breakout.
 
Some typical light levels, to get you an idea of the situations this sensor will be useful.
  • Night: 0.001--0.02;  
  • moonlightnight:0.02--0.3;  
  • cloudy indoor:5--50;
  • cloudy outdoor:50--500;
  • Sunny indoor:100--1000;
  • under the sunlight in summer afternoon: about 10*6 power; 
  • light needed to read:50--60;
  • home video standard intensity of illumination:1400.
Applications
  • This sensor is ideal to measure the light intensity of: 
  • car headlights
