Customer Reviews

Based on 1 review

Sensor gives good results The provided Python script is also well thought out. Was pleasantly surprised by the simple calibration, even if it is only a two-point calibration. A point of criticism for me is the addressing which did not work for me, I would like better step-by-step instructions for this.
