iqvia sensor platform collects and displays allergy, asthma and disease
information (based on a U.S. ZIP code) from IQVIA.
Data measured includes:
- Indicies for allergies, asthma and cold/flu indices
- Current outlook
iqvia into Home Assistant, add the following section to your
configuration.yaml file (adjusting the
monitored_conditions list to your
iqvia: zip_code: "00544" monitored_conditions: - allergy_average_forecasted - allergy_index_today - allergy_index_tomorrow - asthma_average_forecasted - asthma_index_today - asthma_index_tomorrow - disease_average_forecasted - disease_index_today
(string)(Required)The U.S. ZIP code to gather data for (as a quoted string).
(list)(Required)The metric types to monitor.
The average forecasted allergy index over the next 5 days.
The allergy index for today.
The allergy index for tomorrow.
The average forecasted asthma index over the next 5 days.
The asthma index for today.
The asthma index for tomorrow.
The average forecasted cold/flu index over the next 5 days.
The cold/flu index for today.
It is important to ensure the ZIP code is quoted if it starts with a 0. Unquoted ZIP codes that start with 0 will cause errors.
Any index-related sensor will have a value between 0.0 and 12.0. The values map to the following human-friendly ratings:
|0.0 - 2.4||Low|
|2.5 - 4.8||Low/Medium|
|4.9 - 7.2||Medium|
|7.3 - 9.6||Medium/High|
|9.7 - 12.0||High|
Several asthma-related sensors carry information regarding the top three “asthma allergens” (i.e., irritants that may exacerbate asthma symptoms). Example values include:
|Particulate (<= 2.5 μm)||PM2.5||EPA: Particulate Matter (PM) Pollution|
|Particulate (<= 10 μm)||PM10||EPA: Particulate Matter (PM) Pollution|
|Ozone||O||EPA: Ozone Pollution|
|Sulpher Dioxide||SO2||EPA: Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) Pollution|
|Carbon Monoxide||CO||EPA: Carbon Monoxide (CO) Pollution in Outdoor Air|
