This module is based on the I2C light-to-digital converter TSL2561 to transform light intensity to a digital signal. Different from traditional analog light sensor, as Grove - Light Sensor, this digital module features a selectable light spectrum range due to its dual light sensitive diodes: infrared and full spectrum.
You can switch between three detection modes to take your readings. They are infrared mode, full spectrum and human visible mode. When running under the human visible mode, this sensor will give you readings just close to your eye feelings.
Version 2 (Fixme when we have a bazaar image)
The version 2 hasn't been on the shelf now.
This is an Arduino Library of Grove - Digital Light Sensor (two versions).
Include the corresponding header file
//for v1 TSL2561.init(); //for v2 ISL29035.init();
Get the Lux reading of visible light
unsigned long readVisibleLux();
