I recently discovered the AOSONG AM2315 humidity/temperature sensor and was quite intrigued. This is a very accurate and affordable device that is a nice addition to a current project. Supposedly, this device is i2c compliant, so I figured it would be easy to talk to. Little did I know….
After hacking around for a couple of long days I was able to get the device working on my breadboard with a Pi Cobbler. Google and forum searches determined there are a lot of people struggling to get the device to work.
So, Sopwith decided to write-up his adventure with the AM2315 and provide a very detailed step-by-step guide with screenshots.
I hope this helps save my fellow smoke-breathers some time and frustration.
