The UV Sunmeter (Solmáforo) is a device designed for the measurement of the "Ultraviolet Index"; a relevant number for the care of human health. The UV radiation received by the sensor is transformed into a signal that turns on a colored light according to a protocol designed by the World Health Organization, WHO.
The UV Sunmeter indicates the level of UV radiation with 5 colors, from Low to Extreme. Each color can also be used to get the recommended time of safely exposure.
EXTREME: Avoid exposure. Shirt, sunscreen and hat are a must!
VERY HIGH : Avoid being outside during midday hours! Make sure you seek shade!
HIGH:Slip on a shirt, slop on sunscreen and slap on a hat!
MODERATE: Seek shade during midday hours!
LOW: You can safely stay outside!
