I’m planning on using a couple of these sensors
They are well known for their “capacity” to get corroded when constantly energized. To avoid this and extend their lifespan, some Arduino or RPi implementations use an interval reading (IE: every 20 minutes).
I’m using an ADS1115 DAC with a Wemos D1 mini to get the analog reading into HA. Like so (just reading the voltage for now):
sensor: - platform: ads1115 multiplexer: 'A0_GND' gain: 6.144 name: "ADS1115 Channel A0-GND"
There’s an option
update_interval option for the ADS1115 component:
That’s interesting, but not sure if that will make the ESP module read the analog value every x seconds, while the probe is constantly energized (which I want to avoid) or both. Assuming this will not be the case, but well, I just wanted to make sure.
