When adding a new component with a temperature sensor to your WipperSnapper device, you’ll now be presented with a choice to enable temperature readings in °C, °F, or both.
Not only are temperature readings sent to Adafruit IO, but they are logged to individual feeds which store data for up to 30 (IO free)/60 (paid IO+ plan) days. For example, clicking on the chart icon above the temperature sensor reading will bring you to the Adafruit IO feed for this specific sensor.
The Adafruit IO Feed for the AHT20’s temperature sensor in degrees Fahrenheit shows live data and logs historical data. The feed for each sensor on your WipperSnapper device is downloadable in CSV and JSON format and data is kept for 30 days (IO Free) up to 60 days (IO+).
As always, if you have any suggestions or bugs to report about these new features, please let us know in the forums.
