These 1-wire digital temperature sensors are fairly precise (±0.5°C over much of the range) and can give up to 12 bits of precision from the onboard digital-to-analog converter. They work great with any microcontroller using a single digital pin, and you can even connect multiple ones to the same pin, each one has a unique 64-bit ID burned in at the factory to differentiate them. Usable with 3.0-5.0V systems.

The only downside is they use the Dallas 1-Wire protocol, which is somewhat complex, and requires a bunch of code to parse out the communication. There's a great Arduino library for 1-Wire, but some microcontrollers do not have support for 1-Wire so be sure to check!

Adafruit toss in a 4.7k resistor, which is required as a pullup from the DATA to VCC line when using the sensor. Adafruit don't have a detailed tutorial up yet but you can get started by using the Dallas Temperature Control Arduino library which requires also the OneWire Library.

Documentation and Resources:
  • Rain Gauge Data Logger
  • Summary A Raspberry Pi 3B is used to collect digital counts from an electronic rain gauge (1mm of rain per reed switch closure by magnetic see-saw). It has been running without issues for over 12 months. A UPS powers the Pi so it is immune from short power glitches. The total count is displayed on an LCD screen with reset and inc/dec test buttons. “To HTML” and “To LCD” routines are also included to simp...
  • ThingSpeak temperature & pressure logger
  • This project logs temperature and pressure observations to a ThingSpeak channel using an ESP8266 WiFi module.
  • Arduino Cooking Alarm with DS18b20 Sensor
  • Today we will be making an Arduino circuit that will start playing a noise if the water (or surrounding environment) reaches a certain temperature, in our case, that temperature will be 100° Celsius. This is a useful little project that takes barely any time at all but will be extremely useful to know when your pasta is ready, or when your kettle is ready to pour some coffee. In this project, we will be showing you how...
  • Basic Weather Station
  • The aim of this project was to provide a cost effective and basic weather station for my backyard that can upload readings to Weather Underground. Part 2 of the project will be using this local data to trigger activities in and around my house.

    Once supplying a steady stream of electrons to this device at a fixed electromotive pressure, one can communicate to it over 9600 baud and receive timely and accurate centigrade measurements that are truly amazing.

    Trivial to hook up to your R Pi or arduino.. and get working.. (Posted on 17/08/2018)

    Worked as promised installed into Fibaro Door Sensor. Delivery was prompt. My only gripe would be the size of the package it was sent in. Considering its so small was sent in a box that measured almost 200mm long 100mm wide and deep. Otherwise excellent service. (Posted on 27/06/2018)

    Super easy to use with Raspbian (just enable the 1wire dtoverlay), and with ESP8622/micropython.

    Far more reliable in use than the DHT11/22 sensors, in my experience. (Posted on 27/04/2018)
