This Steam Sensor Module by DFRobot is a relatively simple sensor that utilises the same technique as water sensors, but with a much higher sensitivity so as to measure the fine particles of water in the air rather than straight liquid conductivity. This is great for projects like building automated extractor fans for bathrooms, maintaining humid environments for specialised flora or fauna habitats, or even to let you know when your cakes and other baked goods are at that perfectly tasty temperature.

The sensor has been designed to be used with microcontrollers like an Arduino Boards, and can be interfaced with a classic PH2.0 connector . This makes it not only an easy sensor to utilise, but also highly versatile, with a wide range of different optional controllers to use and a relatively universal connection style. And just to ensure optimal compatibility with a wide range of other parts and components, the Steam Sensor operates on optional 3.3V or 5V DC supply, ensuring that you can use lightweight 3.3V boards, as well as boards with heavier 5V requirements.

Just remember though that these Sensors are not waterproof, and while they have been designed to withstand steam in reasonably high amounts, they should never be submerged. Additionally, to keep the sensors as accurate as possible, consider wiping them clean after usage to avoid oxidisation from steam and humidity.
