unable to update thingworx data by using arduino uno with DHT11 sensor.

}

}

 

The above code is as per my thing, I'm getting humidity and temperature in arduino serial monitor.

Could you please help me to update temperature and humidity value in thingworx as well.

 

Thanks,

Ahmed

Does the advice Adam gave in your other post help with this question as well?

 

Let us know.

 

Thanks,
