UV index sesnsor, wish you had one. ;)


#1

I’m liking these new sensor breakout boards that mate with the new Breakout Garden. One I’d like to see is a light sensor that measures the UV index. I currently have the Adafruit Si1145 paired with a BME680. Hunting up the python library was a bit of a pain. Plus it only really approximates it based on ambient light and IR light levels. Any sensor I found that actually measured UV only had code for Arduino. I personally don’t have the skills to port it over to run in python on a Pi. So if your looking for ideas here is my suggestion. ;)
