LDR (or Light Dependant Resistor, or Photoresistor) is a variable resistor. Light falling on the sensor decreases its resistance.
Output: This module outputs 5v when the sensor receives no light (the circuit is open) and 0v when exposed to bright light (the circuit is closed). When connected to an input on the Arduino using the TinkerKit Shield, you can expect to read values from 0 to 1023.
Module Description: This module features a Light Dependent Resistor, a signal amplifier, the standard TinkerKit 3pin connector, a green LED that signals that the module is correctly powered and a yellow LED whose brightness changes according to the amount of lightness.
This module is a SENSOR. The connector is an OUTPUT which must be connected to one of the INPUT connectors on the TinkerKit Shield.
