LaCrosse Sensor


The lacrosse sensor platform is using the data provided by a Jeelink USB dongle or this Arduino sketch.

Tested Devices

  • Technoline TX 29 IT (temperature only)
  • Technoline TX 29 DTH-IT (including humidity)

Setup

Since the sensor change their ID after each powercycle/battery change you can check what sensor IDs are available by using the command-line tool pylacrosse from the pylacrosse package.

$ sudo pylacrosse -d /dev/ttyUSB0 scan

Configuration

To use your lacrosse compatible sensor in your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
sensor:
  - platform: lacrosse
    sensors:
      sensor_identifier:
        type: SENSOR_TYPE
        id: SENSOR_ID

Configuration Variables

device

(string)(Required)The serial device.

Default value: /dev/ttyUSB0

baud

(integer)(Required)The serial baudrate.

Default value: 57600

led

(boolean)(Optional)Activate or deactivate the Jeelink LED.

frequency

(integer)(Optional)Initial frequency in 5kHz steps.

toggle_mask

(integer)(Optional)The following values can be combined bitwise: 1 = 17.241 kbps, 2 = 9.579 kbps, 4 = 8.842 kbps

toggle_interval

(integer)(Optional)Enable the toggle mode and set the interval in seconds.

sensors

(map)(Required)A list of your sensors.

name

(string)(Optional)The name of the sensor.

type

(string)(Required)The type of the sensor. Options: battery, humidity, temperature

id

(integer)(Required)The LaCrosse Id of the sensor.

Examples

To setup a lacrosse sensor with multiple sensors, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
sensor:
  - platform: lacrosse
    device: /dev/ttyUSB0
    baud: 57600
    sensors:
      kitchen_humidity:
        name: Kitchen Humidity
        type: humidity
        id: 72
      kitchen_temperature:
        name: Kitchen Temperature
        type: temperature
        id: 72
      kitchen_lacrosse_battery:
        name: Kitchen Sensor Battery
        type: battery
        id: 72
