VG-DARK Darkness Sensor Buy Now
The VG-DARK is a highly sensitive light sensor, which will saturate with very low levels of light. It is primarily used as a darkness sensor that will trigger a VegeHub WIFI Sensor Hub when there is light. It can be used to detect sunrise or sunset. It can be installed in a cabinet or dark room, and be used to detect when a door has been opened letting in light.
Because it is designed to saturate with low levels of light, it's not recommended for use as a general purpose light sensor.
