Hey guys. Hopefully I’m posting this in the correct category.
The issue I’m writing about is enabling the SenseHAT platform on Hassio. I’m trying to get the SenseHAT sensors running on a fresh 0.85.1 install of Home Assistant on top of the recommended Hassio image.
The problem is that this platform only seems to be compatible with Home Assistant installations running on top of Hassbian or the All-in-one installer, both of which seem to be deprecated now. As you can see on the configuration page: https://www.home-assistant.io/components/sensor.sensehat/, some additional python dependencies need to be installed in order for the platform to function.
By default, it will just complain of missing the RTIMU library when Home Assistant is booting up:
sensehat: Error on device update!
2:37 PM components/sensor/sensehat.py (ERROR)
Error while setting up platform sensehat
2:37 PM components/light/sensehat.py (ERROR)
The stacktrace itself is pretty self explanatory:
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'RTIMU'
As far as I’ve understood from the Github issues of others that have faced this before me, getting this to work on Hassio will require a RTIMU add-on.
I’d be glad to volunteer a RTIMU add-on for Hassio, I’ve got the time to dedicate into getting this running if this is the case. Any pointers on getting the ball rolling on this? I’ve been using Home Assistant for a while now, but this would be my first add-on I’d be working on.
