Simply click the button below to open your Homeassistant Integrations tab:
Due to Sensus using the BTHome data format, your device should automatically appear and present itself as configurable. If it doesn't, make sure you have the Bluetooth integration enabled in Homeassistant.
After you configure it, the Sensus device page will show something like this:
Here's a table of all the entities and their respective meaning:
|Battery||A flag indicating if the battery has a low charge or not. Will indicate "Low" when battery is getting dangerously low or when temperature is really low (due to batteries performing poorly in low temperatures)|
|Humidity||This is the relative air humidity, in percent, measured with the on-board SHTC3 sensor|
|Illuminance||This is the illuminance level measured in lux with the on-board OPT3001 sensor|
|Voltage||This is the measured battery/supply voltage|
|Temperature 1||This is the on-board temperature, in degrees Celsius, measured by the onboard SHTC3 sensor. |
Note: This entity is called "Temperature" when no soil probe is connected.
|Moisture||Probe only - The soil moisture, in percent|
|Temperature 2||Probe only - The soil temperature, in degrees Celsius|
Example Homeassistant Config
This is an example of what you can do with Sensus. This is my own Plant dashboard at home.
To create this configuration, I have used the following Homeassistant integrations:
- Openplantbook integration - for automatically getting the required values for soil moisture, temperature, etc. for each plant
- Homeassistant Plant - an alternative plant component that fetches data from the Openplantbook integration
- Flower Card - a nicer flower card to display information about a plant
