UPDATED GUIDE: Adafruit IO Basics: Temperature and Humidity #AdafruitLearningSystem @adafruit
Phew, it’s sweltering in NYC right now. One of the best (and most popular) projects to get started with Adafruit IO is a DHT-sensor-based temperature and humidity logger. Place one in your apartment and check it on an Adafruit IO dashboard throughout the day to make sure your kids/pets/plants are okay. We previously only had code for the ESP8266 and SAMD platforms. Until now!
An update has been made to the popular Adafruit IO Basics Basics: Temperature and Humidity guide to add code, wiring, and setup for the Raspberry Pi. We’ll walk through wiring a DHT22 to the Raspberry Pi and interfacing our DHT-Python library with Adafruit IO so you can track the weather and temperature of your apartment – from anywhere!
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
