0-50mA current sensor - Arduino

Hello everyone.

I want to know if my led lamp is working or not, so I thought of using a current sensor to measure it.

The problem is that ACS712 doesn't measure currents within the 0-30mA range.

The led lamp is 230V

Does any know how to measure 0-30mA current with arduino?

Using a very low value resistor and an analogue input?

NO NO NO, do not connect Arduino directly to mains power. Try an LDR under the shade of the lamp to detect if its lighting? Tom.... :)
