Introduction: Interfacing Temperature and Humidity Sensor(DHT22) With BOLT IOT Platform #BuiltWithBolt
This project is made for the people who want to do work on Internet of Things (IOT) and UART communication.In this project, Arduino will read the data from DHT22 Sensor and send the Temperature and Humidity data to the BOLT(IOT Platform)through UART communication. You can show the separate graph for both Temperature and Humidity with respect to Time on BOLT Cloud.
DHT 22 Sensor: It is a digital output sensor. It is used for both Temperature and Humidity measurement. It uses capacitive humidity sensor and thermistor to measure the surrounding air and spits out a digital signal on the data pin. The operating range of Temperature is -40 to 80 Celsius and for Humidity is 0-100%RH.
Step 1: Interfacing of Arduino With DHT 22 Sensor
What Hardware you need -
2.) DHT 22 Sensor
3.) 10k Resistor
Step 2: Interfacing of Arduino With BOLT
You can check the given link below for Arduino Code in which you can interfacing of DHT22 Sensor with Arduino and BOLT-
Step 3: Upload Java Script Code on BOLT Cloud
// It will plot line graph if you want to gauge or bar or any other graph you just need to write barGraph instead of lineGraph
<em> setAxisName('time_stamp '',temperature'); </em>
// It will set your axis name. we are plotting temperature vs time graph so our axis name is temperature
<em> plotChart('time_stamp','temp'); </em>
// the variable name which you have given while selecting GPIO in hardware configuration
// It will set your axis name. we are plotting humidity vs time graph so our axis name is humidity
//the variable name which you have given while selecting GPIO in hardware configuration
// It will download your data from CSV format.
Step 4: Steps for Configuration on Bolt Cloud
Steps for the File upload on BOLT Cloud -
1.) Buy BOLT Unit and create a user account on BOLT Cloud.
2.) login to your account.
3.) Register your BOLT unit to your BOLT Cloud account.
4.) After registration successful, you can see your BOLT unit on your home page of BOLT Cloud and you can see Developer console option on a home page of Cloud account.
Step 5: Hardware Configuration
Click on the hardware configuration button to configure the hardware.
7.) In the Configure Product page. A select UART option and then choose how many commas separated value you want. For eg - we want 2 value for temperature and humidity.Give a variable name to both values. A Select delay between two values for eg - 5 minutes. Click on OK. And then FINISH.
Step 6: Deploy Configuration
8.)Click on the DEVICES Tab. Your Device ID will be listed.Now, Under the product tab, Select the name of your product “Bolt IoT Product”. For eg - temp. Now, Click on the Deploy Configuration button.
Step 7: Data Visualisation
9.) Go to home page and click on BOLT unit. It will redirect to you on the new page where you can see a graph for Temperature and Humidity with respect to Time.
