Part 1 As I await my replacements parts I figured I’d try a few ideas to attempt a recovery of the defective DHT22. The first thing I decided to do was to remove the DHT22 from its partial enclosure. (Sensor part was exposed) Reconnected the sensor node and …. it’s still stuck at 99% humidity. I blew on it and the temperature changed but not … Continue reading DHT22 tinkering.
For over a year I would replace the DHT22 (or its small brother the DHT11) outdoors after a few months if I cared to do so. It’s located in a cutout of a small Tupperware container strapped under my deck roof. No rain can get to it but the roof is no completely opaque and lets a fair amount of sun through. Although the temperature … Continue reading DHT22 is useless outdoors: replacement.
As per blog 75.3 to 87.1 I did an update of HASS.io in a manual fashion. There were many factors which pushed me to do so. One of these was the history graphs were flat-lining. This seemingly minor detail bothers me tremendously, given that I no longer use Grafana at the moment (I thought I was pushing the RPi3b too hard so a clean minimalist install … Continue reading HASS.io History graphs flat-lining
One good thing about having the multisensors all over the place is I can monitor the temperature, humidity and lately the “real” feel. Today was a good day for my little sensor outside. This was taken at 10am on Monday the 16 or July 2018. This sensor as is obvious from the picture is of the outside of my entrance. With the sun beating down … Continue reading Hot hot hot ☀️🔥☀️🔥☀️
After 2 months suddenly it stopped registering humidity.The reading for a few days were very high. I chalked it off as the humidity factor as we enter the rainy season. But today was 45-50% humidity.Even the wash area sensor registered 60.Something was wrong.It seemed to be recovering a little but i no longer felt it was accurate. So I swapped it for the DHT22 in … Continue reading DHT22 AM2302
