Hi I have a bedroom sensor
I keep getting in APDS9960 has invalid id! in the logs but not sure what is incorrect my yaml file is below any help would be appreciated just cant figure out how to set the ID do I need to set for the sensor or binary sensors ??

Confused

At a guess, use lower case for the id, eg

id: gesture_sensor

Hello
Thanks but tried that but still showing error **[15:24:38][E][apds9960:134]: APDS9960 has invalid id!
** ??

Yeah I am wrong anyway - https://esphome.io/guides/configuration-types.html#config-id

Is this while compiling? Or in use?

I don’t think the Id goes on the main component but on the associated sensors for the apds9960 which you don’t appear to have defined. Relook at the definition of the ads9960.

Hi
Both the sensor: and binary_sensor: do you think

I guess it depends on what sensor you need. But the IDs are attached to them not the main component definition.

Bugger that dint work added ID to all of the sensors and binary sensors but still not working ???
Not to sure what to do next now thanks for your sugestions.

Andrew

Compiles fine here, so I’ll ask again: where are you seeing this message, while compiling or during use?

Also, why do you want the id anyway? You don’t seem to use it anywhere in your code?

Hi Complies fine no errors The error shows up in the logs.
And no I don’t need an ID with that sensor it just keeps coming up with the error so I thought it must need an ID to be used. ??

I’m wondering if the Sensor is fualty

Ive stripped back the
YMAL file to below and still the error shows on in the logs

I solved the problem with the Chinese clones !!!!!!!!!!!!!! After about 2 months of torment. The ones that do not go to read the gestures but the other functionalities go .... those that receive the message "Something went wrong during APDS-9960 init!"... In the library, check if the sensor id is 0xAB .. but the id of the Chinese ones is 0xA8 . at least mine ... So ... you need to change in SpurkFun_APDS9960.h line #define APDS9960_ID_1 0xAB with 0xA8 .. and ready. if you use ESP8266 you still have to play with GAINE and BOOST on LEDs for more precise functionality .. other modules may have other ids.
aa. and something else. you can use gestures without interrupting pin.
In setup, at apds.enableGestureSensor (true) use (false) and modify the sketch.
