  • This sensor worked very well indoors as long as you don't have any outdoor light coming in from a window. It definitely does not work outdoors, even in shade. The wavelength of natural light triggers erratic false positives with the sensor – something I found the sensor's manufacturer noted in some obscure place that I read that I'm afraid I can't find anymore.

    @sparkfun Please update the description on this page to note that this sensor does not work outdoors at all, even in shade.

  • I'm looking to miniaturize my project that currently uses this buzzer for tones (https://www.sparkfun.com/products/7950). Is this capable of playing tones and would it be as loud? Is this the smallest option? I am looking to add tones to a small PCB to put inside a digital thermometer of sorts. Thanks!

No public wish lists :(
