Contributed Driver: TSL2561 I2C Visible & Infrared Light Sensor



  • Continuing on with my greenhouse automation, I need a way to measure light both on top of the canopy of plants (to tell if the lights are working, or if natural light is insufficient for the plants) and under the canopy (to tell how thick the foliage is and when pruning is needed.)

    The TSL2561 is a very easy to use simple chip-based sensor. I've included a driver I wrote for it using REXLANG, and a simple application that turns on the lights when it gets dark.
