BeeWi SmartClim BLE


The beewi_smartclim sensor platform allows one to monitor room or external temperature and humidity. The BeeWi SmartClim BLE is a Bluetooth Low Energy sensor device that monitors temperature from a room or a garden from your smartphone by using an APP. Use this integration to track these metrics from any location thanks to Home Assistant, as well as to create some automation scripts based on your room’s temperature.

Installation

Depending on the operating system you’re running, you have to configure the proper Bluetooth backend on your system:

  • On Hass.io: beewi_smartclim will work out of the box as long as the host supports Bluetooth (like the Raspberry Pi does).
  • On a generic Docker installation: Works out of the box with --net=host and properly configured Bluetooth on the host.
  • On other Linux systems:
    • Preferred solution: Install the bluepy and btlewrap library (via pip). When using a virtual environment, make sure to use install the library in the right one.
    • Fallback solution: Install btlewrap library (via pip) and gatttool via your package manager. Depending on the distribution, the package name might be: bluez, bluetooth or bluez-deprecated.
  • Windows and MacOS are currently not supported by the btlewrap library.

Configuration

Start a scan to determine the MAC addresses of the sensor:

$ sudo hcitool lescan
LE Scan ...
D0:5F:B8:51:9B:36 BeeWi SmartClim
[...]

Or if your distribution is using bluetoothctl:

$ bluetoothctl
[bluetooth]# scan on
Discovery started
[CHG] Controller XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX Discovering: yes
[NEW] Device D0:5F:B8:51:9B:36 BeeWi SmartClim

Check for BeeWi SmartClim or similar entries, those are your sensor.

To use your Mi Temperature and Humidity sensor in your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
sensor:
  - platform: beewi_smartclim
    mac: 'xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx'

Configuration Variables

mac

(string)(Required)

The MAC address of your sensor.

name

(string)(Optional)

The name displayed in the frontend.
