AM2320 monitoring with Netdata

What is AM2320?

AM2320 is a temperature and humidity sensor that can be used to measure environment conditions. It features a range of features including a high accuracy of ± 0.5°C and low power consumption. It is suitable for a variety of applications, making it a versatile choice for your project.

Monitoring AM2320 with Netdata

The prerequisites for monitoring AM2320 with Netdata are to have AM2320 and Netdata installed on your system.

Netdata auto discovers hundreds of services, and for those it doesn’t turning on manual discovery is a one line configuration. For more information on configuring Netdata for AM2320 monitoring please read the collector documentation.

You should now see the AM2320 section on the Overview tab in Netdata Cloud already populated with charts about all the metrics you care about.

Netdata has a public demo space (no login required) where you can explore different monitoring use-cases and get a feel for Netdata.

What AM2320 metrics are important to monitor - and why?


The readings from the temperature sensor measures temperatures from -40 to 80 degrees Celsius. It is important to monitor temperatures as they are a crucial factor in the health and performance of any system. Monitoring temperature can help prevent overheating, which can cause system failure and damage components. By monitoring the temperatures, you can ensure that the system is running at optimal temperatures and take action if temperatures rise above the normal range. Normal temperature ranges will vary depending on the system and environment, but typically a temperature between 20-30 degrees Celsius is considered optimal.


The readings from the humidity sensor measures relative humidity from 0-100%. Humidity is an important factor when it comes to the health and performance of a system. Too much humidity can cause condensation, which can lead to corrosion and system failures. Too little humidity can cause static electricity, which can also lead to system damage. Monitoring humidity is important to ensure that the system is running in the optimal range and can help prevent these issues. Normal humidity levels typically range from 40-60%, but again this will depend on the system and environment.
