Arduino Project: Digital Tilt Sensor

Posted by Fiona Su on



Tilt Sensor is a digital tilt switch. It can be used as a simple tilt sensor. Simply plug it to our IO/Sensor shield; you can make amazing interactive projects. With dedicated sensor shield and Arduino, you can achieve interesting and interactive work.


  • Supply Voltage: 3.3V to 5V
  • Interface: Digital
  • Size: 30*20mm
  • Weight: 3g

Connection Diagram


Sample Code

int ledPin = 13;                // Connect LED to pin 13
int switcher = 3;                 // Connect Tilt sensor to Pin3
void setup()
  pinMode(ledPin, OUTPUT);      // Set digital pin 13 to output mode
  pinMode(switcher, INPUT);       // Set digital pin 3 to input mode
void loop()
   if(digitalRead(switcher)==HIGH) //Read sensor value
        digitalWrite(ledPin, HIGH);   // Turn on LED when the sensor is tilted
        digitalWrite(ledPin, LOW);    // Turn off LED when the sensor is not triggered
