The summer is in full swing, and we’re all working out ways to protect ourselves from the sun. But could you do it with the help of Python?

The answer is yes. If you create a Python programmable UVA and UVB sensor with Zerynth Studio and XinaBox.

SL01 xChip with Zerynth Studio

Sherman, from Total Nerd Production, has created a useful article about creating an IoT device that detects UVA, UVB rays, and light. For his demo, he used the SL01 XinaBox xChip.

He used it to sense the level of UV and light coming in through the window and to automatically close the blinds when the level of UV and light gets too high. Quite handy, especially during these summer heat waves.

We’re glad to see Zerynth tools being used in such practical applications. As Sherman says in the conclusion of his post, in regard to why he choose Zerynth:

“Well, when you have a really powerful editor like Zerynth, and it makes everything so easy for you, why wouldn’t you choose that approach?”
