Project 4: ESP32 External Sensor (Updated with bmp280 sensor)

  • ESP32 Devkit V1
  • DHT11 Sensor
  • Jumper wires
  • 10k Ohm Resistor
  • Breadboard
  • Arduino IDE
  • USB Cable
// Example testing sketch for various DHT humidity/temperature sensors
// Written by ladyada, public domain
// REQUIRES the following Arduino libraries:
// — DHT Sensor Library:
// — Adafruit Unified Sensor Lib:
#include “DHT.h”#define DHTPIN 4 // Digital pin connected to the DHT sensor
// Feather HUZZAH ESP8266 note: use pins 3, 4, 5, 12, 13 or 14 —
// Pin 15 can work but DHT must be disconnected during program upload.
// Uncomment whatever type you’re using!
#define DHTTYPE DHT11 // DHT 11
//#define DHTTYPE DHT22 // DHT 22 (AM2302), AM2321
//#define DHTTYPE DHT21 // DHT 21 (AM2301)
// Connect pin 1 (on the left) of the sensor to +5V
// NOTE: If using a board with 3.3V logic like an Arduino Due connect pin 1
// to 3.3V instead of 5V!
// Connect pin 2 of the sensor to whatever your DHTPIN is
// Connect pin 3 (on the right) of the sensor to GROUND (if your sensor has 3 pins)
// Connect pin 4 (on the right) of the sensor to GROUND and leave the pin 3 EMPTY (if your sensor has 4 pins)
// Connect a 10K resistor from pin 2 (data) to pin 1 (power) of the sensor
// Initialize DHT sensor.
// Note that older versions of this library took an optional third parameter to
// tweak the timings for faster processors. This parameter is no longer needed
// as the current DHT reading algorithm adjusts itself to work on faster procs.
void setup() {
Serial.println(F(“DHTxx test!”));
void loop() {
// Wait a few seconds between measurements.
// 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();
// Read temperature as Celsius (the default)
float t = dht.readTemperature();
// Read temperature as Fahrenheit (isFahrenheit = true)
float f = dht.readTemperature(true);
// Check if any reads failed and exit early (to try again).
if (isnan(h) || isnan(t) || isnan(f)) {
Serial.println(F(“Failed to read from DHT sensor!”));
// Compute heat index in Fahrenheit (the default)
float hif = dht.computeHeatIndex(f, h);
// Compute heat index in Celsius (isFahreheit = false)
float hic = dht.computeHeatIndex(t, h, false);
Serial.print(F(“Humidity: “));
Serial.print(F(“% Temperature: “));
Serial.print(F(“°C “));
Serial.print(F(“°F Heat index: “));
Serial.print(F(“°C “));
This is a library for the BMP280 humidity, temperature & pressure sensor
Designed specifically to work with the Adafruit BMP280 Breakout
These sensors use I2C or SPI to communicate, 2 or 4 pins are required
to interface.
