Title: DHT11 displaying incorrect values
Post by: vw121 on Feb 23, 2013, 01:46 am
I'm having some issues with a DHT11 sensor. I used the tutorial in the playground section of this website, but when I run the sketch the serial monitor returns I2ýþY??rw¢?dB?òþd°?Tv6 ect. What am I doing wrong? Is the sensor just bad?


Thanks!

Looks like a baud rate problem.  Is the baud rate at the bottom of Serial Monitor set the same as the baud rate passed to Serial.begin() in your sketch?
