recently Ive set up an ESP8266 to control temperature and humidity in rooms, for this Im using DHT11 sensor, thats the basic code I have in order to check functionality in Arduino IDE

#include "DHT.h"                
#define DHTPIN A0
#define DHTTYPE DHT11

void setup() {
  Serial.println("DHT11 Testprogram");
void loop() {
  // Wait a few seconds between measurements.
  float h = dht.readHumidity();    
  float t = dht.readTemperature(); 
  if (isnan(h) || isnan(t)) {       

  Serial.print("Luftfeuchtigkeit: ");
  Serial.print("Temperatur: ");

So far as I've checked the code seems to be all right and doesn't have any issues. The bottleneck might be the circuit although I checked twice and I don't really understand what the issue still might be. esp8266 with dht11

the 3V is connected to the + and to the pull up resistor of the sensor which is 10K and A0 Pin according to the plan with data pin of the sensor as well as with a pull up resistor and G is connected to - of the sensor. I still get no response from the sensor, I even checked other 3 sensors and cannot understand what the issue might be, does anyone know a solution?

  • DHT on A0? A0 is only analog input

  • Well as far as I've read, it's also possible to use A0 on esp8266 as input

  • analog input or for button. but not for digital communication. and I think A0 on nodemcu is directly connected to esp8266 analog input which is 0 to 1 V

    I tried all of them it didnt work, I used grove humidity sensor library but I might have a look if another library gonna do some magic

    tried other libraries as well, still no success, I was thinking that the resistor might be an issue or some kind of other electronic part
