Heat Index Controller (Temp/Hum controller)

Post by Doppler23 » Sat Aug 25, 2018 11:39 pm

The basis of the project I am trying to get into is to make a safety indication device that when it reaches X-Temp and Y-Humidity the Arduino triggers a relay to turn on a red light. The only problem, however, is that I am completely new to Arduino and have no idea how to go about this.

I believe I have the necessary hardware,( DHT11 temp/Hum sensor, 5v relay, light, Arduino, etc.) I just need some help and direction. I was looking at having the temp and humidity relate to trigger 1 relay. ie: two conditions would have to be met (temp would have to be above 75F and Humidity above 30%) for the relay to trigger.

I would appreciate any and all help, thank you for your time.

Google "arduino dht11" for a large number of tutorials.
