This specially designed light level detector allows you to activate other equipment based on current day or night conditions. As the light level increases, the output voltage supplied by the Out pin increases. The voltage output swings between 0.9V in low light conditions and 2.9V in bright light conditions.
This sensor can also be easily connected to our Electro-Fashion: Igloo, PICAXE wearable module or any e-textiles project using our own conductive thread sewn through the large clearly marked double sided connection points.
- Detects light levels.
- Activate equipment based on night/day timescales.
- Output voltage increases as light level increases.
- 1 x Electro-Fashion, Light Level Detector.
- Length: 21mm.
- Width: 12m.

Add light sensing to functionality to the BBC micro:bit is incredibly easy if you use the Light Sensing board from our Electro-Fashion range. Learn how to add light sensing to the BBC micro:bit with this very simple tutorial.
Hi, Just wondering if this light level detector can act as a switch on/off day/night, or I should add something else to the circuit. Thanks!

Yes you could use this to turn your circuit on/off depending on the light level. You would need to use this with the Igloo board to set the conditions for turning on/off, https://www.kitronik.co.uk/2751-electro-fashion-sewable-picaxe-control-board.html
