I'm trying to measure how bright the day is on a particular day to see how it affects plant growth. The brightest sun can be 120,000 lux. It possible to measure such a large brightness? What sensor do I use?
The best options I've found is the BH1750FVI since its sheet says, "[i]t is possible to detect min. 0.11 lx, max. 100000 lx"
However, it still doesn't go high enough.
Note: I live "only" 3,494 km (2171 miles) from the equator, and it can get fairly bright here.
