Quick Steps

  • Open Arduino IDE, Go to Tools Manage Libraries
  • Arduino add library
  • Search “SSD1306”, then find the SSD1306 library by Adafruit
  • Click Install button to install the library.
  • Arduino OLED library
  • You will be asked for intalling some other library dependencies
  • Click Install All button to install all library dependencies.
  • Arduino Adafruit GFX sensor library
  • Search “OneWire”, then find the OneWire library by Paul Stoffregen
  • Click Install button to install OneWire library.
  • Arduino onewire library
  • Search “Dallas”, then find the DallasTemperature library by Miles Burton.
  • Click Install button to install DallasTemperature library.
  • Arduino Dallas Temperature library
  • Copy the above code and open with Arduino IDE
  • Click Upload button on Arduino IDE to upload code to Arduino
  • Put the sensor on hot and cold water, or grasp the sensor by your hand
  • See the result on OLED

※ NOTE THAT:

The about code automatically horizontal and vertical center aligns the text on OLED display
