Measuring temperature is one of the most common technique used because it is important for many operations and tasks to be performed like in any industries where heaters are used, heat up to a certain temperature is required. When it comes to sensing temperature, a temperature sensor is used that is installed at a place whose temperature is to be sensed. The temperature of that place can be monitored through internet using internet of things. Continue reading IoT Based Temperature Monitoring System
Digital Temperature Controller using arduino, here we are using arduino as main controller, this temperature controller controls the temperature of any heating device with given set points, It also displays state of the device either on or off and current temperature.

Pressure is defined as force per unit area that a fluid exerts on its surroundings. You can measure this force by detecting the amount of deflection on a diaphragm positioned inline with the fluid. Given the known area of the diaphragm, pressure can then be calculated. Pressure sensors are packaged with a scale that provides a method to convert to engineering units. The SI unit for pressure is the Pascal (N/m2), but other common units of pressure include psi, atmospheres, bars, inches of mercury, millimeters of mercury.

Humidity is the amount of water vapor in the air. Water vapor is the gaseous state of water and is invisible. Humidity indicates the likelihood of precipitation, dew, or fog. Higher humidity reduces the effectiveness of sweating in cooling the body by reducing the rate of evaporation of moisture from the skin.
DHT11 Humidity Temperature Sensor
The DHT11 humidity and temperature sensor measures relative humidity (RH) and temperature. Relative humidity is the ratio of water vapor in air vs. the saturation point of water vapor in air. The saturation point of water vapor in air changes with temperature. Cold air can hold less water vapor before it is saturated, and hot air can hold more water vapor before it is saturated. The formula for relative humidity is as follows:
Relative Humidity = (density of water vapor / density of water vapor at saturation) x 100%
Basically, relative humidity is the amount of water in the air compared to the amount of water that air can hold before condensation occurs. It’s expressed as a percentage. For example, at 100% RH condensation (or rain) occurs, and at 0% RH, the air is completely dry.

A temperature is an objective comparative measure of hot or cold. It is measured by a thermometer, Several scales and units exist for measuring temperature, the most common being Celsius (denoted °C; formerly called centigrade), Fahrenheit (denoted °F), and, especially in science, Kelvin (denoted K).
