I'm new to coding stuff is there any cods to use for this?

Hi there! The example code that's running in the video is in the 'thing files' section. Download and install the free Arduino IDE onto your PC so you can upload the code onto the microcontroller. Watch some tutorials on YouTube- there are loads on Arduino. Good luck!

OK, I downloaded it and will look at the data. Cool project too.

I note you are reading Celsius, Can it read in Fahrenheit? You could drop the C and get 3 digits and the degree symbol that way. Not that you need 3 digits indoors...

I'm reading Celsius because I'm in the UK, but it's just as easy to read Fahrenheit if you wish- you can modify the example sketch to do that quite easily. The Groegg 2 baby room thermometer reads to 0.1 degrees Celsius and does not display the degree symbol. The highest resolution that the MCP9808 temperature sensor IC supports is approximately 0.06 degrees Celsius- check out the example sketch and device datasheet. Have fun!
