This tutorial teaches the basics on using DHT11 Humidity Sensor Module.

Step 1: Introduction


DHT11 Humidity Sensor Module is designed by using DHT11 which is able to detect the temperature and humidity of the surrounding environment. This module is compatible with Arduino, PIC, Raspberry pi and etc.


  • Operating Voltage: DC 3.3V to 5V
  • Output signal: Digital two-way single bus
  • Temperature range: 0 to 50°C ± 2°C
  • Humidity: 20% to 90%RH ± 5%RH
