SF-SEN-11447

Have you ever wanted your project to just “hibernate” until someone picks it up or moves it? It’s a great strategy for dramatically extending the battery life of a widget that doesn’t need to be active all the time. The SparkFun Wake-on-Shake board is designed to make it reall...

DF-DFR0027

What's the simplest way to check vibration with Arduino? Use a vibration sensor from DFRobot. You can directly plug it on our IO Expesion Shield V7. Just vibrate this sensor, Arduino can receive a digital signal. It's easy to acount and program in Arduino.

DF-SEN0018

This is a simple to use arduino motion sensor. Power it up and wait 1-2 seconds for the sensor to get a snapshot of the still room. If anything moves after that period, the 'alarm' pin will go low. This sensor checks for infrared heat in it's detecting angle. Human body, pets ...

AF-163

We've updated our favorite triple-axis accelerometer to now have an on-board 3.3V regulator - making it a perfect choice for interfacing with a 5V microcontroller such as the Arduino. This breakout comes with 3 analog outputs for X, Y and Z axis measurements on a 0.75"x0.75" b...
