Attach rain sensor to Raspberry shake?

I am using a Raspberry Shake 3D to monitor rockfall activity in the Austrian Alps. I would love to complement the Raspberry measurements with a simple rain sensor so I can correlate rockfall activity with rainfall. I don’t need the volume of rain water, a simple yes/no indication whether it rains or not would be totally sufficient. The monitoring is restricted to the summer season when snowfall does not occur.

Does anyone know a simple rain senor that can be connected to the raspberry shake?


Hello Ingo, welcome to our community!

This is a very interesting combination of ideas, and thank you for explaining what you are looking for regarding your research, it’s fascinating!

Looking around I have found this little project:

Maybe you can combine both and experiment to see if it can work as you have imagined! Keep us posted!
