Blynk + Wemos D1 mini + TMP36


#1

Hello Everyone

My first post on the community and second project with Blynk. I am trying to do a simple setup with wemos d1 mini clone + TMP36 temp sensor + Blynk. I am still learning so please be patient with me

Hardware is connected as such: TMP36 is connected to G pin, 3v3 pin and A0 pin physically on wemos
Blynk is setup for pin under analog A0

Here is the code that I am using

#define BLYNK_PRINT Serial
#include <ESP8266WiFi.h>
#include <BlynkSimpleEsp8266.h>
#include <SimpleTimer.h>
#include <OneWire.h>
#include <DallasTemperature.h>
SimpleTimer timer;
#define Pin 0//  pin DATA ds18b20

char auth[] = "AUTH CODE HERE";


OneWire ourWire(Pin); 
DallasTemperature sensors(&ourWire); 

char ssid[] = "WIFI NAME HERE";
char pass[] = "WIFI PASSWORD HERE";

void setup()
{
  Serial.begin(115200);

  Blynk.begin(auth, ssid, pass);
  sensors.begin();
  delay(5000);

  timer.setInterval(2000L, leeTEMP);

}
 
void leeTEMP()
{
  sensors.requestTemperatures();
  Blynk.virtualWrite(0, sensors.getTempCByIndex(0));
}

void loop()
{
  Blynk.run();
  timer.run();
}

@rav527 Does it work or not? What help do you need?


#3

The app shows project is not online even though i have the write auth, wifi and password in the code


#4

Please post code under the “three back ticks cpp, {paste code} and three back ticks” sequence as I’ve under.

#define BLYNK_PRINT Serial

#include &lt;ESP8266WiFi.h&gt;

#include &lt;BlynkSimpleEsp8266.h&gt;

#include &lt;SimpleTimer.h&gt;

#include &lt;OneWire.h&gt;

#include &lt;DallasTemperature.h&gt;

SimpleTimer timer;

#define Pin 0//  pin DATA ds18b20

char auth[] = “AUTH CODE HERE”;

OneWire ourWire(Pin);

DallasTemperature sensors(&ourWire);

char ssid[] = “WIFI NAME HERE”;

char pass[] = “WIFI PASSWORD HERE”;

void setup()

{

Serial.begin(115200);

Blynk.begin(auth, ssid, pass);

sensors.begin();

delay(5000);

timer.setInterval(2000L, leeTEMP);

}

void leeTEMP()

{

sensors.requestTemperatures();

Blynk.virtualWrite(0, sensors.getTempCByIndex(0));

}

void loop()

{

Blynk.run();

timer.run();

}

What does your serial monitor show? Does it show connecting to Blynk server. Read up connection manage state of your connection. First check fro Wifi connection and then the Blynk server connection.

I will go home n try that in the evening. Let you know my findings. thank you.


#6

Shouldn’t these “ ” be these " " … ?


#7

@Shadeyman Lost you here…:slight_smile: Long day and so probably having a jaded brain right now…


#8

Example: Shouldn’t this

char ssid[] = “WIFI NAME HERE”;

Look like this

char ssid[] = "WIFI NAME HERE";

#9

Aah. Now I see… yeah, good catch.


#10

@rav527 I fixed your code formatting as shown here

and here

Blynk - FTFC


#11

Tried this code and it display correct temperature over serial monitor. Now i dont know how to make this code to send data over wifi…i have read the manual in the help section but still at loss at the basics. please help.

int sensorPin = 0;
 
void setup()
{
 Serial.begin(9600);
}
 
void loop()
{
 
 int reading = analogRead(sensorPin); 
 // measure the 3.3v with a meter for an accurate value
 //In particular if your Arduino is USB powered
 float voltage = reading * 3.3; 
 voltage /= 1024.0; 
 
 // now print out the temperature
 float temperatureC = (voltage - 0.5) * 100;
 Serial.print(temperatureC); 
 Serial.println(" degrees C");
 
 delay(1000);
}

#12

Backticks, not commas for the code formatting :wink:

As for your code… Blynk can’t work with too much stuff in the void loop()… You need to use timers.

Look at this example using a couple of different sensors…


#13

This is easily done using the value display widget. Please pick out the value display widget example from the sketch builder, run it and you will understand how it works. Fairly simple. I’m sure you will then be able to integrate it into your project.

Essentially, you need to write that value to a virtual pin using blynk.virtualWrite call. Viola…The widget on the phone tied to the same virtual pin will display the value.


#14

Hi Mohan,

can you please help on how to modify the code that display data over serial and send to blynk. after you show me i will be able to compare both codes and learn from that. i understand its super easy for you but i have to see an example to learn. thank you.


#15

So perhaps look at the examples? :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: This is just one of many, including the link I sent you above.

https://examples.blynk.cc/?board=ESP8266&shield=ESP8266%20WiFi&example=GettingStarted%2FVirtualPinWrite


#16

thank you. i didnt know about the example sketch generator. what is virtual pin 5? on my wemos d1 mini i dont have any such pin.


#17

All the links for the Documentation, Help Center and Sketch Builder are at the top of this page… you may need to scroll up to see them.

here is a link for that info…

Virtual pins are virtual :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: and are meant to transfer information between the App and the sketch, not part of the physical GPIO.

Note, when programming ESP boards with Arduino IDE you do NOT normally use the silkscreened pin designations, rather you would use the Arduino pin designations.


#18
#define BLYNK_PRINT Serial

#include <ESP8266WiFi.h>
#include <BlynkSimpleEsp8266.h>

char auth[] = "aec5825e0cee4708b9b293f0d8755fae";

char ssid[] = "YYYY";
char pass[] = "XXXXXXX";

BLYNK_READ(V5) //Blynk app has something on V5
{
  sensorData = analogRead(A0); //reading the sensor on A0
  Blynk.virtualWrite(V5, sensorData); //sending to Blynk
}

void setup()
{
  Serial.begin(9600);
  Blynk.begin(auth, ssid, pass);
}

void loop()
{
  Blynk.run();
}

ok so i tried uploading this code after reviewing some of the examples but the code wont upload. its says sensor data was not declared in this scope.


#19

All variables need to be declared in some way, either within the function where that are used or globally where they can be used throughout the code.

#20
#define BLYNK_PRINT Serial

#include <ESP8266WiFi.h>
#include <BlynkSimpleEsp8266.h>

char auth[] = "aec5825e0cee4708b9b293f0d8755fae";

char ssid[] = "xxxx";
char pass[] = "xxxx";

int sensorPin = 0;

BLYNK_READ(V5)
{
 int reading = analogRead(sensorPin); 
 float voltage = reading * 3.3; 
 voltage /= 1024.0;
 float temperatureC = (voltage - 0.5) * 100;
 Blynk.virtualWrite(V5, temperatureC); //sending to Blynk
}

void setup()
{
  Serial.begin(9600);
  Blynk.begin(auth, ssid, pass);
}

void loop()
{
  Blynk.run();
}

So something is happening. the code uploaded. i am getting values on the app however they not accurate. i remember with serial monitor they were making sense.
