How add a DHT11 in cayenne


Hi guys. Good afternoon.

I would like know how add a humidity and temperature sensor DHT 11 in cayenne, using arduino.

I was tryin this code, but the values was in Fahrenheit, and I would like in Celsius.

// Example testing sketch for various DHT humidity/temperature sensors
// Written by ladyada, public domain

#include "DHT.h"
#define CAYENNE_DEBUG         // Cayenne Code Uncomment to show debug messages
#define DHTPIN 3              // what digital pin we're connected to
#define CAYENNE_PRINT Serial  // Cayenne Code Comment this out to disable prints and save space
#include <CayenneEthernet.h>  // Cayenne Code Change this to use a different communication device. See Communications examples.

// Cayenne authentication token. This should be obtained from the Cayenne Dashboard.
char token[] = "token";

// Uncomment whatever type you're using!
#define DHTTYPE DHT11   // DHT 11
//#define DHTTYPE DHT22   // DHT 22  (AM2302), AM2321
//#define DHTTYPE DHT21   // DHT 21 (AM2301)

// Connect pin 1 (on the left) of the sensor to +5V
// NOTE: If using a board with 3.3V logic like an Arduino Due connect pin 1
// to 3.3V instead of 5V!
// Connect pin 2 of the sensor to whatever your DHTPIN is
// Connect pin 4 (on the right) of the sensor to GROUND
// Connect a 10K resistor from pin 2 (data) to pin 1 (power) of the sensor

// Initialize DHT sensor.
// Note that older versions of this library took an optional third parameter to
// tweak the timings for faster processors.  This parameter is no longer needed
// as the current DHT reading algorithm adjusts itself to work on faster procs.

void setup() {
  Serial.println("DHTxx test!");

void loop() {;
  // Wait a few seconds between measurements.

  // Reading temperature or humidity takes about 250 milliseconds!
  // Sensor readings may also be up to 2 seconds 'old' (its a very slow sensor)
  float h = dht.readHumidity();
  // Read temperature as Celsius (the default)
  float t = dht.readTemperature();
  // Read temperature as Fahrenheit (isFahrenheit = true)
  float f = dht.readTemperature(true);

  // Check if any reads failed and exit early (to try again).
  if (isnan(h) || isnan(t) || isnan(f)) {
    Serial.println("Failed to read from DHT sensor!");

  // Compute heat index in Fahrenheit (the default)
  float hif = dht.computeHeatIndex(f, h, false);
  // Compute heat index in Celsius (isFahreheit = false)
  float hic = dht.computeHeatIndex(t, h);

  Serial.print("Humidity: ");
  Serial.print(" %\t");
  Serial.print("Temperature: ");
  Serial.print(" *C ");
  Serial.print(" *F\t");
  Serial.print("Heat index: ");
  Serial.print(" *C ");
  Serial.println(" *F");


// These functions are called when the Cayenne widget requests data for the Virtual Pin.
  Cayenne.virtualWrite(V0, dht.readTemperature(true));

  Cayenne.virtualWrite(V1, dht.readHumidity());

  Cayenne.virtualWrite(V2, dht.readTemperature());

  Cayenne.virtualWrite(V3, dht.readHumidity());

  Cayenne.virtualWrite(V4, dht.readTemperature(true));

Thank you.



Hi @luizfelipejanuario17,

Have you tried changing the Temperature setting on the widget itself? It should automatically convert from F to C on our end if you set the widget to C.
