Ruggedised IoT Light Sensor
The Urban.io IoT Light Sensor detects and reports the intensity of light in lux within indoor environments.
Used in conjunction with an Urban.io Gateway the Light Sensor will read and transmit light levels to the Urban.io Cloud Platform on a near real-time basis.
Measured data is securely displayed within the Urban.io Cloud Platform for reporting purposes. Through the use of dynamic profiles, thresholds can be set for each sensor which can trigger alarms that can be sent via email or SMS.
All recorded sensor data, historical summaries and alarms are made available for use within external software platforms via the IoT Data API.
The Urban.io Light Sensor uses a photoresistor to detect the intensity of light around the device. The sensor returns a value between 10 and 1000 lux making it suitable for detection of light levels within indoor environments.
NOTE: this sensor is not suitable for outdoor light level measurement beyond 1000 lux.
