Crash collision sensor

Having some time to myself to play with some new sensor, the circuit is pretty straight forward, waiting for my raspberry pi in the meantime..

Sensor
VCC >> 5V
GND >> GND
OUT >> pin 3

/* Crash Collision Sensor Detection Module
 *  
 */
int ledPin = 13;                // choose the pin for the LED
int inputPin = 3;               // connect sensor to input pin 3
int count = 0;

void setup() {
  Serial.begin(9600);           // Init the serial port
   
  pinMode(ledPin, OUTPUT);      // declare LED as output
  pinMode(inputPin, INPUT);     // declare Micro switch as input
}
 
void loop(){
  int val = digitalRead(inputPin);  // read input value
  if (val == HIGH) {                // check if the input is HIGH
    digitalWrite(ledPin, LOW);      // turn LED OFF
  } else {
    digitalWrite(ledPin, HIGH);     // turn LED ON
    count += 1;
    Serial.println(count);
    Serial.println("Switch Pressed!");
  }
  delay(80); // the higher the delay the less sensitive the switch
}
