I have searched the forum to see if anyone has come up on this...I am sure it has been brought up before, perhaps I am not searching correctly. Needless to say I am very green in terms of Arduino and such, but I have a sensor kit that I have constructed. It includes several sensors, including this one for 'sound'
Can anyone point me in the right direction as to what exactly I am getting from this? I get values ranging from 0 to 532. How can I use these values, for example, to detect dB levels? I doubt the sensor has the ability to detect frequencies, I think its more just measuring the amount of noise...but should this not be able to be translated to dB?
Apologies for my 'newness' if any of this is dead obvious. I would appreciate any help on how to get a useful value from this. I am concerned with comparing sounds in the ranges found on this site:
Thank you in advance!
