The response curve of this sensor matches the CIE Photopic curve (a standard for human eye response to light) and measures in Lux units. This is the preferred sensor for human and animal studies.
In addition to the standard range (suitable for outdoor studies), they also manufacture units sensitive to low light levels suitable for indoor, or night time studies.
