Video Guide


This project is designed to introduce you to Cayenne and the applications it has within IoT. In this project, you will have acquired the ambient temperature and humidity data using the Raspberry Pi and DHT11 sensor. The acquired sensor data was then pushed to the Cayenne IoT project builder using the Cayenne MQTT Python Library. This tutorial is just scratching the surface of what you can achieve with it, there are so many different projects you can build around this. Keep in mind that the Raspberry Pi is limited in processing power and will not be able to handle large volumes of traffic accurately.
