envirophat sensor platform allows you to display information collected by an Enviro pHAT add-on board for the Raspberry Pi. The board features a wide range of sensors, such as:
- BMP280 temperature/pressure sensor
- TCS3472 light and RGB color sensor with two LEDs for illumination
- LSM303D accelerometer/magnetometer sensor
- ADS1015 4-channel 3.3v, analog to digital sensor (ADC)
To add this platform to your installation, add the following to your
# Example configuration.yaml entry, # which is equivalent to the default setup sensor: - platform: envirophat use_led: false display_options: - temperature - pressure - light - light_red - light_green - light_blue - accelerometer_x - accelerometer_y - accelerometer_z - magnetometer_x - magnetometer_y - magnetometer_z - voltage_0 - voltage_1 - voltage_2 - voltage_3
List of readings to monitor.
All the conditions
Ambient temperature in Celsius. Since the sensor is close to the Raspberry Pi, that might affect the accuracy of the reading (ie. the Pi might heat up the sensor)
Atmospheric pressure in hPa.
Ambient light, as an integer in the 0-65535 range.
Red color reading scaled to the ambient light, as an integer in the 0-255 range.
Green color reading scaled to the ambient light, as an integer in the 0-255 range.
Blue color reading scaled to the ambient light, as an integer in the 0-255 range.
Accelerometer reading in units of G, along the X axis.
Accelerometer reading in units of G, along the Y axis.
Accelerometer reading in units of G, along the Z axis.
Magnetometer reading, the X component of the raw vector.
Magnetometer reading, the y component of the raw vector.
Magnetometer reading, the z component of the raw vector.
Voltage reading on Analog In 0 in units of V.
Voltage reading on Analog In 1 in units of V.
Voltage reading on Analog In 2 in units of V.
Voltage reading on Analog In 3 in units of V.
Declaring that the on-board LEDs are not used for the color measurements thus these readings are based on the ambient light. If the value is set to True, the on-board LEDs will blink whenever a reading is taken.
- X is parallel with the long edge of the board
- Y is parallel with the short edge of the board
- Z is perpendicular to the board
- voltage readings are done in the 0-3.3V range, please do not connect higher voltages than that! See the Enviro pHAT’s getting started guide regarding how to make a voltage divider
Add something like the following to your customize section:
# Example configuration.yaml entry customize: sensor.accelerometer_z: icon: mdi:airplane-landing friendly_name: "Acc Z" sensor.magnetometer_x: icon: mdi:arrow-up-bold-hexagon-outline friendly_name: "Magnetic X" sensor.pressure: icon: mdi:weight friendly_name: "Pressure"
# Example configuration.yaml entry group: enviro_phat_voltages: name: Enviro pHAT Voltages` entities: - sensor.voltage_0 - sensor.voltage_1 - sensor.voltage_2 - sensor.voltage_3
Since the Enviro pHAT communicates over I2C, you might also need to make sure that the I2C devices are enabled, by adding or uncommenting the following line in
/boot/config.txt (see the DT Parameters section in the Raspberry Pi documentation):
