Humidity DHT11 Example

Post by ggoetz56 » 27 Oct 2016 12:28

Hi, (already posted this in German Section- without response)

I need 2 humidity-sensor with my Fibaro HomeCenter 2 (HC2). So I found the "Humidity and temperature sensor DHT11" example. But this won't work for me and my HDT22.

I believe the wire diagram isn't correct. I connected pin 9 on z-uno with pin 2 on DHT; Pin 3 left empty for correct function. Maybe you will change the diagramm.

So I need another Humiditysensor my quest:
Will I be able to have 2 Sensor on one board (lets say connected with pin 10).
Whats about the sketch. # define dhtPin2 10 seems ok, but zunoSendReport(3) will be the wrong statement.

So I'm not the electronic-crack I need someone to show me the details. If it is too complicated please tell me, I would cancel it.

Thank you
Gerhard

It works ok with One DHT11. was an easy example.
I bought a bundle of 5 DHT11's. Will try a second on a different pin.
But could be a couple of days before I find the time. incase anyone else knows a quick fix.

Micky,

issue is that the Fritzing schematics show PIN 3 as data Pin.
Datasheet and Gerhards experience use PIN 2 : http://www.micropik.com/PDF/dht11.pdf

Z-UNO team:
Not a big issue, but drawing should be corrected, or in case there are different versions with different pinout a remark would be required to check specs before connecting.
Gerhard already got answer on how to connect 1+ sensors in another forum.
I am currently testing HYT221 and working well with the corrected wire implementation.
Do some more testing and will post an example code in a view days.
Quite a pricy sensor but +/- 1.8% for humidity.


regards,

Markus

Not very helpful for other users, who is looking for that solution ;)

That's why I added a tested and working code for all, who need 2 DHT sensors.

I have used PIN 11 and 12 - because of I like free pin 9/10 for additional I²C devices and do not want to "block" it.

This sketch show that you can use multiple sensors, change the PIN numbers (you can use the PIN 9/10 also - like in original sample).

I would suggest to use DHT22/AM2302 because of better data:
DHT11:
Good for 20-80% humidity readings with 5% accuracy
Good for 0-50°C temperature readings ±2°C accuracy

DHT22:

Good for 0-100% humidity readings with 2-5% accuracy
Good for -40 to 125°C temperature readings ±0.5°C accuracy

Additional - you can connect it to 3.3V (no needs to connect it to 5V like in original example)
If you connect to 5V - please do not forget to use a level shifter (as sample simple voltage divider with 2 resistors)

I hope the code help to understand the principle:

Code: Select all

// add library
#include "ZUNO_DHT.h"
// pin connection
#define DHTPIN1 11  // first sensor
#define DHTPIN2 12  // second sensor
 
DHT dht1(DHTPIN1, DHT22);  // use "DHT11" instead of "DHT22" for DHT11 sensor
DHT dht2(DHTPIN2, DHT22);
 
int humidity1;      // here we will store the humidity of first sensor
//float temperature1;   // here we will store the temperature of first sensor  
int temperature1;   // here we will store the temperature of first sensor  
int humidity2;      // here we will store the humidity of second sensor
//float temperature2;   // here we will store the temperature of second sensor  
int temperature2;   // here we will store the temperature of second sensor  

// for float values (decimals) sketch must be modified - see example with DS18B20
// http://z-uno.z-wave.me/examples/1-wire-ds18b20-temperature-sensor/
 
// set up channels
ZUNO_SETUP_CHANNELS(
      ZUNO_SENSOR_MULTILEVEL_TEMPERATURE(getterTemperature1),
      ZUNO_SENSOR_MULTILEVEL_HUMIDITY(getterHumidity1),
      ZUNO_SENSOR_MULTILEVEL_TEMPERATURE(getterTemperature2),
      ZUNO_SENSOR_MULTILEVEL_HUMIDITY(getterHumidity2)
);
 
void setup() {
  dht1.begin();
  dht2.begin();
  Serial.begin(); 
  Serial.println("start");
}
 
void loop() {
  // obtaining readings from the sensor DHT
  humidity1 = dht1.readHumidity();
  temperature1 = dht1.readTemperature();
  humidity2 = dht2.readHumidity();
  temperature2 = dht2.readTemperature();
  Serial.print("Humidity = "); 
  Serial.print(humidity1);
  Serial.println(" %  ");
  Serial.print("Humidity = "); 
  Serial.print(humidity2);
  Serial.println(" %  ");
  Serial.print("Temperature = "); 
  Serial.print(temperature1);
  Serial.println(" *C");
  Serial.print("Temperature = "); 
  Serial.print(temperature2);
  Serial.println(" *C");
  // send data to channels
  zunoSendReport(1);
  zunoSendReport(2); 
  zunoSendReport(3); 
  zunoSendReport(4); 
  // send every 30 second
  delay(30000);
}
 
byte getterTemperature1() {
  return temperature1;
}
 
byte getterHumidity1() {
  return humidity1;
}
byte getterTemperature2() {
  return temperature2;
}
 
byte getterHumidity2() {
  return humidity2;
}

changed code a little bit
- "float" for temperature values with decimals (not int)
- added comment for DHT11 usage

Thank you Mike for your explanation.
Now I know DHT22 is not a I2C-Device and only z-uno Pin 9 and 10 are able to manage such devices.

I will test the sketch
Thank you.

First of all: the sketch works "as it is" for me.
Thank you Michael

Did some adoption:
Set Z-uno to sleep mode. Sending values every 15 min.
To minimize failure I will write 10 values to an array cut the highest and lowest value and sent the average to z-wave server.

Did anybody have a "arraysort()" for me?

Michap, your example will not report temperature values with decimal to the main controller.
See exact definition how to make sensor to report with required precission: http://z-uno.z-wave.me/Reference/ZUNO_S ... ULTILEVEL/
Working implementation you can find on my HYT221 example. (Size 2 & precision 1 requires to multiply measured value by 10)

Right, thanks.
I forgot to modify the rest of the sketch after changing temp to float - changed it back and added comment.

i'm trying to use a DHT22 with the library but i got this error :

Someone have an idea?
