Analogue Light Dependent Resistor (LDR)

Analogue Light Dependent Resistor LDRThe Raspberry Pi works on digital signals - one or off.  Analogue can be any value and normally the Raspberry Pi requires an Analogue to Digital converter.

I have one connected to a 2m length of cable and one connected to a 20cm length of cable.

Requires a 1uf Capacitor

Resource - http://learn.adafruit.com/basic-resistor-sensor-reading-on-raspberry-pi

Takes a parameter of RCpin.  This is the pin where the resistor is connected to.  I have 2 connected to the system, one inside, one out.  The inside sensor is basically dark all day.

def RCtime(RCpin):
    reading = 0
    GPIO.setup(RCpin, GPIO.OUT)
    GPIO.output(RCpin, GPIO.LOW)
    time.sleep(0.1)

    GPIO.setup(RCpin, GPIO.IN)
    # This takes about 1 millisecond per loop cycle
    while (GPIO.input(RCpin) == GPIO.LOW):
        reading += 1
        if reading > 200:
            break
    return reading

def pdslight(GPIOPIN):
    if debug:
        print("Reading light " + str(GPIOPIN))
    x=0
    loops=5
    for y in range(0,loops):
        x = x + RCtime(GPIOPIN)
    x = x/loops
    if debug:
        print("Reading light " + str(GPIOPIN) + " " + str(x) )
    return x
