What is a flame sensor? Well the name kinda gives it away its a sensor that detects flame. Unlike a smoke detector that detects smoke this sensor detects the flame of a fire, good if you have a fireplae and you want to have updates on weather it is still burning or not.

Step 1: Program and Wire the Arduino

This is the code i used:

void setup() {
Serial.begin(9600);

Serial.println("Started");

}

void loop() {

Serial.println(analogRead(A0));

delay(500);

}

Step 2: Use the FLAME Sensor :)

Notice the LED is off when there is no flame and is on when there is flame near it. I got up to a yard awa before the LED started flickering.
