Temperature and Humidity monitoring with DHT22 sensor Arduino Uno R3

The objective of this tutorial is to learn how to use the DHT22 sensor with Arduino uno. The room temperature and humidity will be printed to serial monitor and also will be displayed to the LCD 4×20 in Proteus ISIS.

Temperature and Humidity monitoring with DHT22 sensor Arduino Uno R3 DHT22-PinOut

DHT22 sensor

DHT22 is simple basic, cheap digital temperature and humidity sensor. It uses a capacitive humidity sensor and a thermistor to measure the surrounding air, and spits out a digital signal on the data pin. Connections are simple, the first pin on the left to 3-5V power, the second pin to your data input pin and the right most pin to ground. You can download DHT22 specification file from this link 


Power: 3.3-6V DC
Output signal:digital signal via single-bus
Max Current: 2.5mA

Humidity: 0-100%, 2-5% accuracy
Temperature: -40 to 80°C, ±0.5°C accuracy.

Hardware Required:

1x Arduino UNO R3
1x LCD 4×20
1x DHT22 Sensor
1x Potentiometer
2x Resistors 4.7K
1x Button for RESET
1x BreadBoard
14x Jumper Wires.

Software Developmen :

The code developed for the ARDUINO UNO R3 is written in the C language. The compiler used to write the C code is Arduino IDE (1.8.0). After the c code is successfully compiled, a HEX file is generated.
