waqi sensor platform will query World Air Quality Index service to check AQI value for a specific set of locations. The resulting indexes will be added to the Home Assistant as sensor outputs.
This sensor requires an API token. Please obtain one at AQICN API token.
The locations field is a search for a location. E.g., “brisbane” or “Brisban” would find Brisbane, Australia and all associated stations in the area.
The format for station fields is exactly from the website, e.g., you would provide the location string “South Brisbane, Australia” for the linked location.
To enable this sensor, add the following lines to your
# Example configuration.yaml entry sensor: - platform: waqi token: AQICN_API_TOKEN locations: - beijing
A list of location names to look for air quality data. In case a specific location has multiple registered stations all of them will be added to Home Assistant.
The value reported is an overall AQ index for the location. The values of the index can be interpreted as following:
|0 - 50||Good||Air quality is considered satisfactory, and air pollution poses little or no risk|
|51 - 100||Moderate||Air quality is acceptable; however, for some pollutants there may be a moderate health concern for a very small number of people who are unusually sensitive to air pollution|
|101 - 150||Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups||Members of sensitive groups may experience health effects. The general public is not likely to be affected|
|151 - 200||Unhealthy||Everyone may begin to experience health effects; members of sensitive groups may experience more serious health effects|
|201 - 300||Very unhealthy||Health warnings of emergency conditions. The entire population is more likely to be affected|
|301+||Hazardous||Health alert: everyone may experience more serious health effects|
