Inkbird ibs-p01b, temp readings

Hi, I’m trying to incorporate and Inkbird ibs-p01b in my HA via esphome. Unfortunately it isn’t supported yet via esphome and i have troubles extracting the temperature via the ble tracker hub.

When i run:

    - mac_address: 11:22:33:44:55:66
        - lambda: |-
            ESP_LOGD("ble_adv", "New BLE device");
            ESP_LOGD("ble_adv", "  address: %s", x.address_str().c_str());
            ESP_LOGD("ble_adv", "  name: %s", x.get_name().c_str());
            ESP_LOGD("ble_adv", "  Advertised service UUIDs:");
            for (auto uuid : x.get_service_uuids()) {
                ESP_LOGD("ble_adv", "    - %s", uuid.to_string().c_str());
            ESP_LOGD("ble_adv", "  Advertised service data:");
            for (auto data : x.get_service_datas()) {
                ESP_LOGD("ble_adv", "    - %s: (length %i)", data.uuid.to_string().c_str(),;
            ESP_LOGD("ble_adv", "  Advertised manufacturer data:");
            for (auto data : x.get_manufacturer_datas()) {
                ESP_LOGD("ble_adv", "    - %s: (length %i)", data.uuid.to_string().c_str(),;

I do get a temperature reading:
[15:14:26][D][ble_adv:036]: New BLE device
[15:14:26][D][ble_adv:037]: address: 49:42:01:00:18:14
[15:14:26][D][ble_adv:038]: name: tps
[15:14:26][D][ble_adv:039]: Advertised service UUIDs:
[15:14:26][D][ble_adv:041]: - 0xFFF0
[15:14:26][D][ble_adv:043]: Advertised service data:
[15:14:26][D][ble_adv:047]: Advertised manufacturer data:
[15:14:26][D][ble_adv:049]: - 0x08F6: (length 7)

The 08F6 is the current temperature, but i’m not able to extract it and place it into a sensor. I did try the method described at ESP32 Bluetooth Low Energy Tracker Hub — ESPHome but when i incorporate FFF0 as manufacturer id, the sensor remains unknown.

This is what i get with ble_client:

Could somebody point my in the right direction?

@Dennis_D I can add it into OpenMQTTGateway if you are ready to do some testing.

Did you ever resolve this. I’m having similar issues

Just use the Passive BLE monitor integration. Works great

@1technophile : thanks but it’s supported now in esphome, sorry for the late reply.

@Seth_Greenstein: You can use Inkbird IBS-TH1, IBS-TH1 Mini, and IBS-TH2 BLE Sensor — ESPHome
