I am playing with my neat, new GrovePi+ Starter Kit. I especially love the backlit RGB display!
I have never seen sensible values reported by the DHT sensor. With it plugged into port D7, this happens:
>>> from grovepi import * >>> dht(7,1) [-0.0, -1.694739530317379e+38]
This seems different from other questions in this forum on this sensor.
This is fresh clone from the GrovePi github repo. And, following a suggestion in an earlier question about this sensor, I did a firmware update.
The sensor itself has “Temperature&Humidity Sensor v1.2” printed on the back.
Is this a bad sensor? Bad board? A sesnor version not supported by the software?
