I recently bought an Atlas Scientific EC probe (literally the day before the anyleaf EC probe came out for 1/6th the price!), naturally it needs temperature compensation. I know my Anyleaf pH probe has an integrated temp sensor that it uses for temperature compensation. I had a look through the Anyleaf python library and it seems that pulling temperature data alone is easy enough.
I was thinking it would be easier to get the pH probe to return it’s temperature data in the same way a DHT11/22 returns multiple measurements (temp, humidity, dewpoint, etc - as one input with multiple measurements.
Any problems with this approach? Is there a good reason to buy a dedicated temp probe instead?
