The BH1750FVI sensor to measure the ambient lighting level. BH1750FVI is a calibrated digital light sensor IC that measures the incident light intensity and converts it into a 16-bit digital number. It can measure ambient light intensity ranging from 0 to 65535 Lux (L).

The built-in diffuser dome helps insure you get an accurate reading and you are not measuring a point light source. The Lux is an SI unit for illuminance and is equal to one lumen per square meter. The BH1750FVI sensor directly gives output in Lux. The spectral response function of the sensor is approximately close to that of the human eye. The sensor output can be accessed through an I2C interface.

The I2C address is changeable by either grounding or connecting ADDR to VCC. The include wires make it quick and easy to hook up to your project.
