Hi there (and happy Eastern),
I’d like to know more detail about what values the light sensor emits.
I’m seeing values ranging from 0 (lights off) to about 100 (lights on) to literally OVER 9000 (when I force-feed the sensor with my very, very bright LED torch).
Is that value aligned to any real scale or unit (ANSI Lumen, etc)?
About what I’m trying to do:
I’ve written a python script for a weather station, that also utilizes the unicorn-hat to display temperature. I’m pulling additional external weather data via http://openweathermap.org/current#cityid and I’d like to generate something representing the light value from the dataset to store in a timeline in redis.
