It is a low-cost sensor with good performance, it will help you create different temperature and humidity control and monitoring projects.
How to connect the DHT22?
It is only necessary to connect the power VCC pin to 3.3V or 5V, the GND pin to Ground (0V), connect a resistor in Pull-up mode, between the Data pin – VCC and the data pin connect to a digital pin.
it is compatiblewith Arduino / Raspberry Pi / Nodemcu / ESP32 boards or any microcontroller that has digital pins.
It requires a 4.7K or 10k Ohm resistor in Pull-up mode, between the Data pin and VCC.
