Request Sensor Readings Using ESP32 via Telegram.

Request Sensor Readings Using ESP32 via Telegram.

In this post you will see how to request ESP32 Sensor readings using telegram, i.e. we are going to build a system in which we request the sensor readinngs like current temperature and humidity from our phone using telegram messenger.

This is a very  simple but very effective project.we can read the temperature and humidity of any place from anywhere in the world through our phone.

we just need to send a message  from telegram bot.

Components Requried

1. ESP32

2.DHT22 Temperature and Humidity Sensor

3.1kohm resistor
