3rd party sensors (in lieu of Grove)

Hello Folks, just got this Starter Kit a couple of weeks back and been enjoying this very much. I have some sensors from the previously purchased Freenove starter kit. Just wondering whether I can use these non-Grove modules with Seeeduino Lotus. Any issues encountered? I also want to use my own relay and a couple of gas sensor modules. Can anyone help provide guidelines how to go about this? Many thanks in advance.

Yes, you can!

can you share the gas sensor details?

Hi Salman, thanks for the reply. The sensor is MQ-2, Combustible gas, smoke. It’s not a grove product.

For the MQ-2, you can follow this project, you also need to use some jumber to connect with the module and Seeeduino Lotus. https://create.arduino.cc/projecthub/Aritro/smoke-detection-using-mq-2-gas-sensor-79c54a

Of course! Why didn’t I think of that. So actually I can use any sensors on the Gove beginner Kit Seeeduino Lotus, by referring to Arduino.cc. MANY MANY Thanks indeed, Salman. I do have all the tools needed. Cheers.

Great, All the best. :slightly_smiling_face: :love_you_gesture:
