Our "Mood Ring" sensor. Warning: does not change color ! Detects from -40 to 100 C (-40 to 212 F). View the sensor data using our Hot software (see below). You can also measure temperature remotely with the HotIR.

Application examples

  1. Measure outside, room or body temperature
  2. Let your own body heat play your sequences or be adventurous and let the number of people in a room increase the heat.
  3. If you're interested in the wonders of your own body, check the Biosensing page too.
  4. Combine with the Humid, Air and Light sensors to create a meteorological station. Add soil Moisture sensors and Switches to control valves for watering your plants.
