Got my Matrix Creator last week end, and my first project I had was to upgrade my small “weather station” with it.
Well, it’s not really a “weather station” as it only monitor temperature, until now
Anyway, upgrading my old DS18B20+ with the Creator sensors seems a good starting point to learn how the matrix core works.
Despite the fact that both temperature values from humidity & pressure sensors are off the reality, mainly due to the heat coming from the pi and/or the Creator itself (I think), the reading from the humidity sensor is completely flat.
Whatever the actual temperature in the room, the only value i got is pretty much 33.0.
(I’m only talking about the raw temperature, not the calibrated one).
I’ve tried to restart the Pi/Creator, and reflash everything, but nothing, still 33°C.
Here is a few temperature readings I got tonight :
I use a fan to lower the temperature around the Creator, and as you can see, the pressure sensor follow the same trend as the CPU temp. But the humidity sensor just stay flat.
Actually, it’s not really flat. If you take a closer look :
There is some variation, but extremely small, and in the opposite direction !
So, either my humidity sensor is busted (but in other hand, the humidity value is quite correct), or something else is wrong.
Before sending my Creator back for a replacement, I would rather know if someone else has already had this issue or not.
