How to Connect an LDR to Arduino

Light Dependent Resistor or LDR is also referred to as a Photoresistor. This simple device features an incredible characteristic whereby it changes its resistance in accordance with the light intensity, which hits it. When light is shone on it, the LDR’s resistance becomes lower; on the other hand, the resistance becomes more significant when the […]
