The Grove-Tilt Switch is the equivalent of a button, and is used as a digital input. Inside the tilt switch is a pair of balls that make contact with the pins when the case is upright. When the switch is level it is OPEN, and when tilted the switch CLOSE. It is wired to the SIG line. The SIG pin output is LOW normally. When the Tilt Switch is upright, a pair of balls inside the tilt switch will contact with the pins and the SIG pin output is HIGH. NC(No Connection) is not used on this twig and there's a surface-mount resistor.
Ready to use with microcontrollers as a digital input. This product also has a compact modular design Plug-and-play grove compatible interface.
You can also get the grove wrapper for a tidier and nice presentation of the project:
