    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month Pros:Easy to use with just only a transistor (or other) needed to amplify, buffer the output. Include the control over sensitiveness and time. Very good range and sensitive even at "middle" setting. Even a centimeter of hand movement can be detected at ra... Read more

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month Pros:There is no documentation for it. Google HC-SR501. You can connect CdS light sensor in it. It has two potentiometers and jumper pads so you can setup to suit your needs. Cons:Would be nice if a datasheet was available. But you don't really expect that from the... Read more

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week Pros:It's cheap and it works okay. PRetty easy to wire up - with an Arduino 5V to 5V, GND to GND and Out to a digital pin configured as input. You can connect it up without a microcontroller - basically if you have 5V and GND connected, the out pin gives 3.3V (I think) and app... Read more
