What it is
A PAR sensor in a waterproof aluminum enclosure with a 1.5m cable. The sensor comes pre-calibrated and doesn't require any subsequent calibration.
The base comes with a small tripod, mounting bracket, and bubble level.
The Arduino IDE, PlatformIO, and Particle.io library is in the respective library manager. Any Arduino compatible board will work. Any Raspberry Pi 3, 4 or Zero will work as well.
A python library is available for the Raspberry Pi.
The PAR sensor, accompanying sensor circuit for taking measurements are included.
