PIR trouble

Filed under: Cat Adams,Will Not Count Towards Your Grade — catadams @ 6:42 pm

I have been trying for a long time now to get the PIR sensor from Spark fun (found here) to work, but to no avail. Does anyone have experience with this sensor, or a similar one, and knows a sure-fire way of getting it to work? I’m trying to do a simple digital read and the numbers keep coming out all wonky.



  1. hey cat, Paul and I have been working with them and were super confused at first too. My email is Contact me and I’ll send you the code and some info. Hope this helps
