Particle Photon - DHT11/DHT22 - Ubidots


#1

Could you help me how to send the data from a dht11 / dht22 temperature sensor from a particle photon to Ubidots? So far they only appear in the particle console but I want to send the data to Ubidots.

Hi there, you may reference the basic example for sending a float value and then just add your dht11 sensor read to replace the fixed example value.

All the best

I tried to make the combination of the example you mentioned but I can’t have it send the sensor data, I don’t know what I did wrong or how I should declare the variables.

Hi there, as you have noticed, the method add() receives at least two arguments: the variable label and the dot value, your sensor read must be float type, like the ones of the example, in order to send it using our library.

All the best

Hi @TTERMICO

You can refer to a project I did with Particle posting to Ubidots;

If you are seeing your data in Particle console at least it means the sensor is working :). Outside of that, it does not necessarily mean you are successfully publishing the data via web hooks to Ubidots. I hop my project helps, it includes my sample code.

You should be able ti simply replace my RFID data with your data acquired from the sensor.

Best of luck!!
