How to mount a humidity sensor to the 3CH WiFi Relay Control Board?

Hi,

I am currently very happy with my “Three Channel WiFi Relay / Thermostat Board” that is already controlling a ventilator and a central heating pump.

I would like to extend it with a humidity sensor and have the following questions ?

  1. Can I use a dht11 sensor instead of dht22 sensor ?
  2. Can I directly stick the sensor into the 4 holes on the board or do I a need to solder it ?
  3. In what direction do I need to connect the 4 holes on the board with the 4 pins
    (there are 2 possibilities - left to right or right to left).
  4. Someone has successful experience with mounting a humidity sensor to the “3CH Wifi Relay Control Board” ?
  5. Won’t the heat produced by the “3CH Wifi Relay Control Board” not impact my temperature and humidity readings?
    If so what simple way I can use to put the sensor at some distance from my control board.

Thanks in advance for all responses.
Jan.
