PIR: a USB motion sensor

By martinm, in Measures and DIY, august 14,2015.

From time to time, we are asked whether Yoctopuce would be interested in building a USB motion sensor based on a PIR sensor. Let's kill the suspense right away: the answer is no, not at the present time. However, we can show you how to build one for a little bit more than the price of a Yocto-Serial.

A few months ago, we explained how to configure a YoctoHub or a VirtualHub to automatically post sensor values on emoncms.org.
