Thanks Gordon, I saw that one. I did some research and the VEML6070 from the same company seems to be a better fit. Most sensors just return a UV index number. The VEML6070 returns the intensity.

I went on Facebook and some people pointed me in the right direction for creating my own which I am now in the process of doing. I have a prototype I am working on and am just trying to fix a few kinks in the code, but when done I will share how to do it or if people don't want to make it, I can make it as well. I also plan on making a few improvements like touch screens. The best part is that most of the parts are open source and what isn't can easily be printed with a 3-D printer. I will send out updates as I get closer. If anybody know how to program in C++ and wants to help, let me know.
