Sunlight Meter

Is your garden getting enough light?


My plants die all the time.  One of the reasons they die is that they don't get enough light.  I want to build a simple device that will tell you if your plants are getting enough light.  Most plants require eight hours of good sunlight daily in order to thrive.

I'm going to start out with a prototype using the Arduino board.  After I get that working I'll build up a few prototypes that will work for some friends.  Then after that I'll spin a board and make a kit that friends could use to make their own.
