Sensus was designed with Homeassistant in mind. Just power it up and it will appear as a new integration. Of course, you can also use it without Homeassistant.
Packed full with sensors 👃
A variety of sensors are present: Temperature🌡️, Relative Air Humidity💧, Illuminance⛅, Supply Voltage⚡, as well as Soil Moisture and Soil Temperature. And more can be added via the expansion interface.
Low power 🔋
Sensus can run for up to 1 year when powered from a inexpensive CR2032 battery (included) or indefinitely when powered via USB-C.
Bluetooth Low-Energy 📡
Data is transmitted wirelessly via Bluetooth Low-Energy, so you don't need expensive Zigbee Hubs. The transmission range is up to 100m.
Capacitive Soil Probe 🌱
Replaceable soil probe measures how wet the soil is using a capacitive method. Also provides soil temperature🌡️ so you know just how cold it is at the plant's roots.
Upgradeable and configurable 🧰
Sensus can be updated using sensus-cli. This application can also be used to configure the device, as well as calibrate the Soil Probe.
Can't believe this is a feature in 2023. Used for logging additional data from Sensus, as well as updating and configuring Sensus.
The Soil Probe is just one of many planned addons for Sensus. For example, I plan to support the Adafruit STEMMA Soil Sensor, as well. Other addons are in the works!
Made in the EU 🇪🇺
Sensus is made in Cluj-Napoca, the informal capital of Transylvania, in a one-bedroom apartment.
