Raspberry PI as proxy for Mi Flora

I’m running HA in a VM on my Proxmox server. There is no bluetooth there and I want to deploy Mi Flora sensors that obviously rely on BLE. I have a spare Raspberry PI and I’m thinking I can use it as a proxy somehow.

Can anyone point me in the right direction on how to do so?

Here’s some tips, enjoy :slight_smile:

Use Plantgateway by ChristianKuehnel

Works great. It pulls data from the sensors by BLE and sends the data to a MQTT broker. I run a similar setup (HA in a container without bluetooth).

MiFlora --> RPi --> MQTT broker --> HA

Or esphome.
