Description

This module can help you detect the temperature and humidity of the environment of your house.

The module contains a DHT11 temperature & humidity senorthat is a complex sensor with a calibrated digital signal out.It use digital module acquisition technology and the temperature&humidity sensor technology.Sensor consists of a resistance type moisture element and a NTC temperature measuring element. Because of single wire serial interface, it is easy to use the module.

Usage

This demo is going to show you how to read temperature and humidity information from this Crowtail - Temperature and Humidity Sensor.

1.Hardware Connection
The Temperature and Humidity sensor is connecting to digital port D5 of Crowtail - Base Shield.

2.Download Temperature_humidity_sensor library for Arduino boards with 16MHz XTAL; Unzip and put it in the libraries file of Arduino IDE by the path: ..\arduino-1.0\libraries;

3.Open “DHTtester” example via the path: File --> Examples --> Humidity_Temperature_Sensor --> DHTtester.

// Example testing sketch for various DHT humidity/temperature sensors

#include "DHT.h"
 
#define DHTPIN 5     // what pin we're connected to
 
// Uncomment whatever type you're using!
#define DHTTYPE DHT11   // DHT 11 
//#define DHTTYPE DHT22   // DHT 22  (AM2302)
//#define DHTTYPE DHT21   // DHT 21 (AM2301)

// Connect pin 1 (on the left) of the sensor to +5V
// Connect pin 2 of the sensor to whatever your DHTPIN is
// Connect pin 4 (on the right) of the sensor to GROUND
// Connect a 10K resistor from pin 2 (data) to pin 1 (power) of the sensor

DHT dht(DHTPIN, DHTTYPE);

void setup() {
  Serial.begin(9600); 
  Serial.println("DHTxx test!");
 
  dht.begin();
}
  
void loop() {
 // Reading temperature or humidity takes about 250 milliseconds!
 // Sensor readings may also be up to 2 seconds 'old' (its a very slow sensor)
 float h = dht.readHumidity();
 float t = dht.readTemperature();

 // check if returns are valid, if they are NaN (not a number) then something went wrong!
 if (isnan(t) || isnan(h)) {
   Serial.println("Failed to read from DHT");
 } else {
   Serial.print("Humidity: "); 
   Serial.print(h);
   Serial.print(" %\t");
   Serial.print("Temperature: "); 
   Serial.print(t);
   Serial.println(" *C");
  }
}

4.Upload it into your Arduino board and open the serial monitor to observe the temperature and relative humidity information of the environment.
