DiscoverBus™ Wired Ambient Light Sensor

About the product:

This ambient light intensity sensor is well suited to control systems that create light-based experiences for humans. This digital sensor has a strong rejection to ultra violet light, thus having a response that matches the human eye. It also combines wide dynamic range and low power consumption. Having the ability to measure or trigger alerts from light intensity, allows this sensor to drive rules that can control other devices and systems such as relays, lights, alarms, etc. It is suited to indicating whether lights are left on, sending alerts that can be used to turn lights off,  conserving power, measuring light levels in photographic dark rooms, controlling the lighting levels of rooms, backlights, outdoor and traffic street lighting, etc.
