This driver depends on:

Please ensure all dependencies are available on the CircuitPython filesystem. This is easily achieved by downloading the Adafruit library and driver bundle.

Installing from PyPI

On supported GNU/Linux systems like the Raspberry Pi, you can install the driver locally from PyPI. To install for current user:

pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-hts221

To install system-wide (this may be required in some cases):

sudo pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-hts221

To install in a virtual environment in your current project:

mkdir project-name && cd project-name
python3 -m venv .env
source .env/bin/activate
pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-hts221

Usage Example

import time
import board
import busio
import adafruit_hts221

i2c = busio.I2C(board.SCL, board.SDA)
hts = adafruit_hts221.HTS221(i2c)
while True:
    print("Humidity: %.2f percent rH" % hts.humidity)
    print("Temperature: %.2f C" % hts.temperature)
