RIVM Stookalert

The stookalert sensor platform queries the RIVM Stookalert API for unfavorable weather conditions or poor air quality. With a Stookalert, the RIVM calls on people not to burn wood. This can prevent health problems in people in the area.


To enable the platform, add the following lines to your configuration.yaml file:

  - platform: stookalert
    province: YOUR_NL_PROVINCE
