For the MEGR 3171 IoT project, the group decided to design and build a temperature and humidity sensor. This was chosen because the group felt it was important to know the temperature of a room, even when the owner was not present. This project extends to other applications such as cooking, which the project aids by allowing someone who is cooking to know the temperature of a stove without having to be in the room. This project works using a DHT11 temperature and humidity sensor to measure both temperature and humidity in a room. This data is then published to Thingspeak, where the data can be viewed in graph form so that trends in the data are more easily viewable.
