TEMT6000 Light Sensor Module
This tiny light-sensor module from PMD Way 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.
Inlinea header pins are included but not soldered to the board.
