Guide with the sensor of vibrations

Hi,

I would like to know how can I use this sensor what are the code to use or the library ?

thank to anybody who as an answer to help me.

the item is : Détecteur de vibrations DV18015 - Chocs et vibrations | GO TRONIC

good afternoon,

ps: sorry for my english... hoping that you will understand.

Hi, welcome to the forum.

Did you bought that sensor already ?

I think it is a spring contact, like this : Fast Vibration Sensor Switch (Easy to trigger) : ID 1766 : $0.95 : Adafruit Industries, Unique & fun DIY electronics and kits
Probably with a filter and a OpAmp to detect a certain level of motion.

I suppose you can apply GND and 5V and the output to an Arduino digital input. Just read the input with digitalRead().

Those modules can be disappointing. If you buy sensors at Adafruit, you won't be disappointed.

I didn't buy it yet I wanted to make sure i knew how to use it, thank you very much.

Do you know this web site do you think it is secure ? or do you know a good website where i can find something similar ?

These measure acceleration or tilt.

You may need to use a level-shifter to convert between 5V and 3.3V.

Note the printed circuit ‘breakout’ board needs to accelerate or tilt. There is not a separate sensor.

digitalRead() - Arduino Reference

The sensor itself is a two-terminal switch so you would need internal or external pull-up resistor if you connect it directly to an Arduino.

I cannot see that the circuit board does much:

The Arduino Store has items that are well supported of course. Else start with Adafruit, Sparkfun, Pololu, they have suppliers in many countries. I think Seed Studio has a partnership with Arduino ?
If you want many things to try, buy the cheapest things on Ebay. Many less good sellers sell things from Ebay, but with higher prices.
