I have a project of developing a intelligent system to automatically control the temperature and humidity of a home. I will doing this on a small scale to show that it works.
For this I did research and for components to control the temperature and humidity I managed to find the following:
-> Dht11 to sense the temperature and humidity of a room -> Heating pads to increase or decrease temperature by turning it off or on. Not sure if there's better item for this. -> For humidity control I'm thinking of using another heating pad dipped into a container of water to be on when humidity is low, so that the temperature increase will evaporates the water. To decrease the humidity, turn off the heating pad and maybe turn on a fan.
Not sure if these components that I'm thinking of will work. Maybe you could suggest something better to control the temperature and humidity with.
