Introduction: ARDUINO - SPFD5408 TFT LCD 2.4 TEMP and HUMIDiTY Monitor. Fahrenheit & Celsius!

About: Hello world! I make simple & Advanced projects for people who want to learn programming and electronics. Most of my Instructables are about arduino and the wide range of sensors you can use with it. I make…

Hello world! Today i made a Temp & Humidity Monitor with a DHT11 Sensor & the 2.4 TFT LCD Shield on a arduino Mega. Its shows Fahrenheit & celsius, Also for both Heat Indexes are displayed.

Follow the next step for the Code, Schematic, Libraries & Parts list.

You need 3 Libraries. They are included in the downloads.

  • SPFD5408_Adafruit_GFX.h
  • SPFD5408_Adafruit_TFTLCD.h
  • SPFD5408_TouchScreen.h

Step 1: Schematic, Code, Libraries & Parts List.

Just wire the DHT11 Like the Schematic shows, and plug on the TFT LCD on top of the Arduino Mega.

Make sure you download and install the libraries, and Upload the code and you have yourself a nice cheap

to build Temp & Humidity monitor.

Parts list:

  • Arduino Mega
  • 2.4 TFT LCD SPFD5408 (Aliexpress got them very cheap)
  • DHT11 Temperature sensor. KY-015
  • Jumper wires
