Wake-on-Shake Hookup Guide
The SparkFun Wake-on-Shake is a wonderful little sensor board that gives you the ability to put your project into hibernation until bumped or shaken awake. This means you can design projects meant to stay inert for long periods of time, possibly even several years, depending on the battery type used to power the project.
We recommend the following materials in order to follow along with this tutorial.
