MKR1000 to Google Sheets via PushingBox using th DHT

Arduino
This Arduino Sketch pushes data via WiFI to pushing box for encryption then on to PushingBox to log that data to your Google Sheet
//-----------------------------------------------
//This sketch is combined from Adafruit DHT sensor and tdicola for dht.h library

//Since Arduino can't https, we need to use Pushingbox API (uses http)to run 
//the Google Script (uses https). Alternatly use Ivan's SecureWifi encryption

Google Script for receiving wireless data in HTTPS format

JavaScript
Paste this into the Script Editor of your Google Sheet to receive your Wireless data. Remember it has to be encrypted/security certificate HTTPS format, that's why I'm using PushingBox
