The Thermometer class constructs objects that represents a single Thermometer/Temperature sensor attached to the physical board.

Johnny-Five currently supports several kinds of Thermometer/Temperature sensors:

This list will continue to be updated as more devices are confirmed.

Usage

var five = require("johnny-five");
var board = new five.Board();

board.on("ready", function() {

  var temperature = new five.Thermometer({
    pin: "A0"
  });

  temperature.on("data", function() {
    console.log("celsius: %d", this.C);
    console.log("fahrenheit: %d", this.F);
    console.log("kelvin: %d", this.K);
  });
});

API

There are no special API functions for this class.

Events

  • change The "change" event is emitted whenever the value of the temperature changes.

  • data The "data" event is fired as frequently as the user defined freq will allow in milliseconds. ("data" replaced the "read" event)
