This this the last in a series of posts on adding functionality to a baby monitor. Todays posts involves getting the raspberry pi to measure ambient temperature and and display it on a web page.
I must have ready every post in existence on how to set this up but all the posts in the world wont help you with bad soldering which is what appears to be my problem in the end so I will document the solder free method that I used an worked first time when I tried it.
The post that helped me the most once I had the sensor working was this blog and the info below is mostly based on that blog (so thank you to fetchitnowuk). However, i suggest you use his post or mine as they do things slightly differently.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
