Code

CodeC/C++
Code to get access to the Si7021 sensor data using the Adafruit Si7021 library.
// Connect Vin to 3-5VDC
// Connect GND to ground
// Connect SCL to I2C clock pin (D1 on Photon/Electron)
// Connect SDA to I2C data pin  (D0 on Photon/Electron)


#include "Adafruit_Si7021.h"   // Use for Build IDE
// #include "Adafruit_Si7021.h"               // Use for local build

Adafruit_Si7021 sensor = Adafruit_Si7021();
double h;
double t;

void setup() {
    sensor.begin();
    
    // Variable for IFTTT
    Particle.variable("t", &t, DOUBLE);
    Particle.variable("h", &h, DOUBLE);
}

void loop() {
    
    h = sensor.readHumidity();
    t = sensor.readTemperature();
    
    // Publish data
    String temperature = String(t);
    String humidity = String(h);
    
    temperature = temperature.format("%1.2f", t);

    Particle.publish("temperature", temperature, PRIVATE);
    
    delay(30000);
     
    Particle.publish("humidity", humidity, PRIVATE);
 
    delay(30000);
}
