Keyestudio EASY plug Tilt Sensor Module

Introduction

The tilt-switch twig is the equivalent of a button, and is used as a digital input. Inside the tilt switch is a ball that make contact with the pins when the case is upright. Tilt the case over and the balls don't touch, thus not making a connection.
When the switch is level it is open, and when tilted, the switch closes. It can be used for orientation detection, alarm device or others.
Here is the principle of tilt sensor to illustrate how it works:

Upload the Code

Copy and paste below code to Arduino IDE and upload.

int ledPin = 13;// Connect LED to pin 13
int switcher = 9;// Connect Tilt sensor to Pin9
void setup()
{
pinMode(ledPin, OUTPUT);// Set digital pin 13 to output mode
pinMode(switcher, INPUT);// Set digital pin 9 to input mode
}
void loop()
{
if(digitalRead(switcher)==HIGH) //Read sensor value
{
digitalWrite(ledPin, HIGH);// Turn on LED when the sensor is tilted
}
else
{
digitalWrite(ledPin, LOW);// Turn off LED when the sensor is not triggered
}
}


What You Should See

Done uploading the code, if tilt the sensor, you should see the led state ON or OFF.
