Espruino and DHT22 example

In this example we use the DHT22 (or AM2302) humidity/temperature sensor and the Arduino UNO board to read data and print it out to the serial monitor.

The DHT22 is better than the DHT11 because it has a wider range of measurement, 0 to 100% for humidity and -40°C to +125°C for temperature. Also it has a digital output that provides greater data accuracy.


The AM2302 is a wired version of the DHT22, in a large plastic body, so they are the same device. Connect the red 3.3V power, the yellow wire to your data input pin and the black wire to ground.



Here are the pin connections

Device Pin – AM2302 colour Espruino
1 (Vcc) – Red wire 3.3
2 (S)  – Yellow wire B3
3 (GND) – Black wire GND


Here is a layout showing how to connect aDHT22



This example simply logs out temperature and humidity to the console every second

setInterval(function() {
 var dht = require("DHT22").connect(B3); (a){
 console.log("Temperature is "+a.temp.toString());
 console.log("Humidity is "+a.rh.toString());
}, 1000);



You should see something like this in the console window

Temperature is 25.2
Humidity is 65.1
Temperature is 25.3
Humidity is 65.9
Temperature is 25.5
Humidity is 67.9
Temperature is 25.6
Humidity is 68.6
Temperature is 25.7
Humidity is 69.2
Temperature is 25.9
Humidity is 70.4
Temperature is 26
Humidity is 72.1
Temperature is 26.2
Humidity is 72.7
