      Arduino - Water Detector / Sensor



      Sohail Gulam

      Connecting a water sensor to an Arduino is a great way to detect a leak, spill, flood, rain, etc. It can be used to detect the presence, the level, the volume and/or the absence of water. While this could be used to remind you to water your plants, there is a better Grove sensor for that. The sensor has an array of exposed traces, which read LOW when water is detected.

      In this chapter, we will connect the water sensor to Digital Pin 8 on Arduino, and will enlist the very handy LED to help identify when the water sensor comes into contact with a source of water.
