    Humidity sensors compatible with Grove Shield

    g3jza

      Hello there,

       

      I'm looking for any humidity ( doesn't need to have humidity & temp) sensor that I can connect directly into the Seeedstudio Grove shield (that is attached to the intel edison arduino board). I've already read that the DHT11 / DHT22  has some issues and only a workaround exists (since I admit I'm not really technically-skilled to do any HW engineering / soldering / DYI work etc.,as I'm more into SW side of thing, this is not the right solution for me...)

       

      I've read similar thread that suggested buying one of these:

      http://sensing.honeywell.com/honeywell-sensing-hih4030-4031%20series-product-sheet-009021-4-en.pdf?name=HIH-4031-001

      But I really don't know how much work is involved in this to get it working with Grove shield

       

      Other candidates for Humidity sensors are the following (which I've got from IoT - Sensors, actuators, and shields to bring your project to life | Intel® Developer Zone):

      IoT - HTU21D Temperature | Intel® Developer Zone

      https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/hardware/sensors/veris-hdxxvxta-humidity-transmitter-family

      But again, for a me as a person with very light HW engineering skills, I don't know what's really involved in getting it to work.

       

      Any help would be highly appreciated.

       

      Thank you
