Introduction: What Is a FLAME Sensor??

About: I like to create new things! I'm very interested in IOT and just Internet Stuff. I am not responsible for any injury or deaths caused by my projects.

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.
