Why does the light intensity monitoring system gives value in thousand ?

What is thousand here ?

Hi @VisheshSRajput,

The LDR is an analog sensor and the values recorded by it are of 10 bits. For example: 1010101010. Now, since each individual bit has the possibility of being either 0 or 1 (i.e. 2 possibilities), the total number of levels or possibilities of 10 bit value in such a case is 2^10 = 1024. In digital systems such as the Bolt module itself, values begin from 0. So, the total range of values that can be obtained from the LDR is 0-1023. Thus, the light intensity monitoring system gives 1.02K as a reading if the LDR is exposed to the maximum amount of light.

Hope this solves your query!
