This Wireling lets you measure ambient light and color temperature via the TCS3472 Color Sensor and onboard emitting LEDs. This I²C sensor measures red, green, blue and clear light with 16-bit resolution. The interrupt registers may be used to set threshold values independently for each color register (RGBC) to improve system efficiency and avoid continuous polling of the sensor.

Note* 5-Pin Wireling cables not included and sold separately.
