Here comes DFRobot's new Analog Ambient Light Sensor for Arduino or Raspberry Pi. Brand new design and much more convenient to use. This sensor help you to detect the light density and reflect the analog voltage signal back to Arduino controller. You can set the threshold of voltage level to trig other unit on Arduino project. 

We also use the enviromental PT550 light sensor and it is more sensitive to light than normal one. Place check following improvement we made. We always devote to bring better user experience.

This Arduino Light sensor can capture little change of light!!
Gravity Arduino Raspberry Pi Light Sensor Project


To ease the difficult of using this light sensor,  a Gravity Interface is adapted to allow plug&play.  The IO sensor shield is the best match for this sound senor connecting to your Arduino. As this sensor can work at 3.3V which make it compatible with Raspberry Piintel edison, joule and curie. 


  • Supply Voltage: 3.3V to 5V
  • Illumination range : 1 Lux to 6000 Lux
  • Responsive time : 15us
  • Interface: Analog
  • Size:22x30mm(0.87"x1.18")

    Project 4: Environmental Monitoring System Based on OBLOQ-IoT Module
    This product is mainly applied in electronic laboratory to monitor and control indicators such as temperature, humidity, light and dust, and timely upload them to the cloud data space to achieve remote monitoring and control of dehumidifier, air purifier, exhaust fan and dimmable light, etc. in the laboratory.     

    Hardware List: 

  • DFRduino UNO R3 - Arduino Compatible
  • Gravity: UART OBLOQ – IOT Module (Microsoft Azure)
  • DHT22 Temperature and Humidity Sensor
  • Sharp GP2Y1010AU0F Compact optical Dust Sensor
  • Gravity: i2C BMP280 Barometer Sensor
  • Gravity: Analog Ambient Light Sensor For Arduino
  • LCD12864 Shield for Arduino
  • Quadruple relay module

  • Project 5: micro:bit Laser Target

    The ambient light sensor sensor detects the intensity of the laser pointer. If it is greater than 400, it will sound the buzzer and the servo will make the target fall and up. Game over when it reaches 10. Press A to reset score to 0.
