Introduction

Tilt sensor is a digital tilt switch. It can be used as a simple tilt sensor. Tilt sensors (tilt ball switch) allow you to detect orientation or inclination. They are small, inexpensive, low-power and easy-to-use.
Simply connect the sensor to our IO/Sensor shield, so you can make amazing interactive projects.

Sample Code

int ledPin = 13;                // Connect LED to pin 13
int switcher = 3;                 // Connect Tilt sensor to Pin3
 
void setup()
{
  pinMode(ledPin, OUTPUT);      // Set digital pin 13 to output mode
  pinMode(switcher, INPUT);       // Set digital pin 3 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
     }
}


Result

Upload the code to the board. Then tilt the sensor, you will see the led on the sensor is turned on. Shown as below.

Think

Or you can connect more an external LED module, then how to program? Think about it. The LED will turn on when tilt the sensor, and the LED will turn off when the sensor is not tilted.
