A simple TEMP and Humidity Meter with simple Arduino Nano and SSD1306 with AHT10 Sensor.

Here’s something super useful: a simple room TEMPERATURE and HUMIDITY measurement setup that uses an AHT10 sensor connected to the Arduino Nano, An SSD1306 Display is being used to display the temperature Readings taken by the AHT10 Sensor.

This whole setup was made as a prototype for a future ROOM temperature meter, which will be an AVR-based setup that will use an Attiny, Atmega, or SAMD21 microcontroller with the AHT10 Sensor and SSD1306 display.

The purpose of undertaking this project was to stay informed about the real-time temperature of my room, considering that I am currently residing in Delhi, where the temperature can unpredictably soar during the summer. It is essential to continuously monitor the surrounding area’s heat levels.

This article is about how you can make this simple project in a few easy steps. Let’s get started.

Material Required
These were the materials used in this built-

- Arduino Nano
- AHT10 Sensor
- SSD1306 Display
- Breadboard
- Jumper wires
- Power Bank

The AHT10 Temp and Humidity Sensor Module is a compact and highly accurate sensor designed to measure temperature and humidity in various applications. The module integrates a high-performance AHT10 sensor chip, which utilizes a capacitive sensing element to detect changes in temperature and humidity.

It provides reliable and precise measurements with a temperature accuracy of ±0.3°C and a humidity accuracy of ±2% RH.

The AHT10 module operates between 1.6V and 6V, which is ideal if we use an external 5V source to power this sensor along with the SSD1306 display and Arduino board.

It communicates with the host device through a standard I2C interface, allowing for easy integration and data retrieval. With its low power consumption and fast response time, the AHT10 Temp and Humidity Sensor Module is an excellent choice for applications such as environmental monitoring, weather stations, HVAC systems, and industrial automation.”
