Sensors

From a technical point of view, sensors are devices that provide information about the appearance of a particular stimulus or exceeding a given base value. There are many types of sensors. Some were created for measuring temperature (e.g. thermal monitoring systems), others for measuring liquids in given devices. Still others measure the degree of deviation of given objects from the norm, and some sensors can intelligently diagnose how other devices work.

Sensors usually work by sending a signal in the form of electric current. In addition, we distinguish sensors that communicate via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or radio waves, and even electroacoustic. By processing using different techniques, the signals transmitted by the sensors can be amplified. In this category we present various types of sensors. You will find products matching the Arduino programmable electronics, Raspberry Pi and more. Some of them you use in your own, others you use to build a robot or IoT systems!

What kind of sensors can I buy?

In this category we have placed all sensors available in the Botland store. There is really something to choose from!

First of all, we need to identify what needs we have. You can buy accelerometers, alarm sensors, 9DoF IMU sensors, pressure sensors, air quality detectors for home and professional use, sound, light, color, gas and liquid sensors. As you can see, the choice is practically unlimited!

Invent a robot the way you want it and you'll find the right sensors for it in the Botland store. If you are looking for electronic components for Arduino or Raspberry Pi, you will not be disappointed! You can also find sensors for the Arduino and Raspberry Pi in separate categories. However, many of the products presented here are characterized by comprehensive, versatile use and high compatibility. Therefore, we also invite you to order specialized sensors for robots. Gesture sensors are a great example. Without them, it's difficult to create - for example - a remote-controlled robot dog that responds to commands with your hand!

Choose the sensors your project needs

The presented sensors will be perfect when building a DIY project, e.g. the Internet of Things. Depending on the needs and application, we can distinguish many types of sensors. Who among us would not like to automate many devices so that without too much effort to turn them on or keep up to date with current weather conditions? Certainly everyone!

The Botland store offers alarm sensors that can save our lives and health because they warn us in time of danger. A great example are carbon monoxide sensors - this is the basic form of protection that can protect us from tragedy (remember that gas is odorless and cannot be recognized otherwise). What's more, we also offer barometric sensors that allow you to measure air pressure. You can also buy air purity sensors from us, which are irreplaceable in the case of allergy sufferers or respiratory problems. We also offer sound and motion sensors that enable the implementation of devices responsive to these functions, e.g. games or turning receivers on and off. To sum up, sensors are the basic elements of many electronic projects.

Problem with choosing a right sensors? Botland will help you!

The sensors above are just some examples. In fact, there are almost infinite sensors! We strive to make our offer as complete as possible, so in this category you will also find gas sensors, pressure sensors, limit sensors, medical, proximity, weather, liquid level sensors and many more. See also sensors identifying movement and its types, controlling temperature, recognizing distances and even magnetic proportions. The possibilities are virtually limitless!

In our store, every electronics enthusiast will find something for themselves. If you are just a beginner in the world of robotics and programmable electronics and you do not know which sensor to choose, write to us. We will be happy to help you choose the right sensor. If you have any questions or problems with the choice, we invite you to contact our technical department. We will listen, advise, help!
