I’m looking for some cheap 433mhz temp/humidity sensor for OpenMQTTGateway? Does such a device a exist? Also, I wouldn’t mind finding an inexpensive weather station that does rain, wind speed/direction, temperature and humidity. Does this exist?
Why not using BLE devices like mi flora and mi jia ?
Wow. I am already using mijia temp sensors with Xiaomi gateway. I also have a couple of door sensors. Will OMG read both the temp and door sensors? If so, then I can get rid of Xiaomi gateway and just use OMG.
Right now I am using OMG on a NodeMCU ESP12. I was thinking of upgrading to the ESP32 to possibly use some BT tags for tracking when the kid’s backpacks are home for presence detection when getting back from school (turn off alarm). Can OMG also read these BT tags?
Yes you can either add an hm10 module to your esp8266 or buy an esp32. Omg will read mi jia, mi flora, and detect beacons , for your door sensors is it BLE ?
I think so. It works with the xiaomi gateway. So I will no longer need the xiaomi gateway at all?
Also, is there a preferred esp32 board I should get? I’ve had a ton of esp8266 boards but this will be my first esp32. Thanks
Could you give me a link to the door sensor that you are using?
This is the sensor. https://m.gearbest.com/smart-light-bulb/pp_257677.html?wid=1433363¤cy=USD&vip=15591596&gclid=CjwKCAjwvNXeBRAjEiwAjqYhFjL6gBz5elfivO1znEp5PUps06UvsYt3pzOcWNJkVm_IHVooMGk9LxoC_sMQAvD_BwE
it seems to be a zigbee sensor. It will not work with OMG
Ok. Can you suggest an esp32 board?
I’m quite happy with this one:
For information this cheap temperature and humidity sensor (DIGOO DG-R8S) is compatible with OMG (use ZgatewayPilight), see topic there:
