Sure, if you provide a link to the sensor in question.

What good will it do to have the sensor info as text in the Serial Monitor application?

The goal is a didattic application with 10 sensors and a PC monitor that show the condition "off" and "on" of a single sensor.
Thank you!

Have you connected the sensors to the Arduino? To which pins? The device can be read using analogRead(), if connected to an analog pin or digitalRead() if connected to a digital pin.

Writing what was read to the serial port is trivial.

I am afraid. I did not explain myself well. I must still to make the project and don't know the ARDUINO platform and don't know as programmed. I am looking for anyone who can advise me to get in order or at least provide me with the necessary software.
Thank you|
