dht sensor platform allows you to get the current temperature and humidity from a DHT11, DHT22, or AM2302 device.
To use your DHTxx sensor in your installation, add the following to your
# Example configuration.yaml entry sensor: platform: dht sensor: DHT22 pin: 23 monitored_conditions: - temperature - humidity
- sensor (Required): The sensor type, supported devices are DHT11, DHT22, and AM2302
- pin (Required): The pin the sensor is connected to.
- name (Optional): The name of the sensor
- monitored_conditions array (Required): Conditions to monitor. Available conditions are only temperature and humidity.
The name of the pin to which the sensor is connected has different names on different platforms. ‘P8_11’ for Beaglebone, ‘23’ for Raspberry Pi.
