Connecting a Temperature & Humidity sensor

Can you connect a Temperature & Humidity sensor to the Konnected Security panel? If so how do you connect it?

  • @Matthew, 

    I've been successful using AM2302 DHT22 Sensors to monitor Temperature and Humidity. 

    The sensor requires VCC, GND and DAT connections. The VCC is a 5VDC and GND are found on the Konnected board and the DAT is a connection to a Zone on the Konnected board. The attached pictures should provide the information you need and are configured as follows: 


    DHT22 Pin                  Konnected Pin

       GND  <--- Black ---> GND       

       VCC   <--- Red ----->  +5V

        DAT   <--- Brn ------> Zone 1

  • Hi Greg,

    Thanks for the above wiring pictures. Do you know whether the humidity sensor can be powered by an external 5v power supply rather than the Konnected board?

    Thank you!

  • @Andrew, I haven't attempted using an independent power supply but would suspect it should work. I'd give it a try and see. BTW the temperature sensor DHT22 can be powered with from 3.3 to 6 volts DC. -Greg
