I really like the idea of trying to capture real-time weather data so I’ve been eyeing these kits from Sparkfun:
- SEN-15901: Weather Meter Kit
- SEN-08942: Weather Meters
- KIT-16275: SparkFun micro:climate kit for micro:bit - v3.0
Looking at the details, datasheets, and instructions there doesn’t appear to be very much information on sending the data to another device and no circuit board comes with the standalone SEN kits which seems dumb.
I’d like to integrate the outputs of the sensors into an esp8266 or something similar via esphome.io and send that onto home assistant. I’m trying to figure out what I need to get this going and I’m wondering if anyone has successfully integrated something like this into Home Assistant previously. Searching this forum and Google for weather kits and Home Assistant, sadly, yields very little.
I did find this: esphomeweatherstation. Where @mkuoppa built something like what I’m wanting from a “MakerLife Weather Station Kit”. That seems pretty darn close (seems to only be missing wind direction) but I couldn’t find that kit by Googling around and the details on his github page are quite sparse.
