The SC13 Light Sensor is our indoor level light sensor. The SC13 has both visible light (lux) sensors as well as a total radiant energy (visible&IR) sensor. The sensor is perfect for indoor lighting studies and solar energy measurements for solar generation. It is also sensitive enough to monitor lighting system performance and light-harvesting operation. Remote email or text(SMS) alarms can also be enabled with our HaloCloud service.
