#264

I think the real-time value is more intuitive to display. We would still use max_brightness to register a problem and highlight the value so that provides the linkage. Seems this is common with a few people so I’ll make the change over the next week. Let me know if there is any other suggestions for improvement.

Somehow my sensors stopped working suddenly. Was working fine for months untill my sdcard crashed and I had to reinstall everything. After adding the 8th sensor, it worked for about 2 days and since then nothing at all. Not even when commenting out the last sensor.

Looks like I have a bluetooth problem?

#267

@molodax, @aherbjornsen, @MrEd, changed plant card to use real-time brightness. Merged in PR1029.


#269

would you mind sharing your code? i like how the data is shown left to right, and not top to bottom.


#270

There’s no code to it. I’ve just configured using the “plant monitor” component:


#271

Cool. Thanks. Didn’t know of that component.
Looks all great now :slightly_smiling_face:


#272

Just added support for MiFlora to this BT to MQTT gateway: https://github.com/zewelor/bt-mqtt-gateway/

It works really well for me, especially since it’s not device specific so I’m also using it for my thermostats.


#273

This is a great initiative: MiFlora Sensor Plant Database


#274

Hi, I bought the Xiaomi Flower Pot (RoPot). Has anyone made Home Assistant compatible with that one? I set it up with the MiFlora sensor component but it does not read any data, only battery.


#275

It looks like this guy has added it for Homey…


#276

OK, any idea how to get it to Hass?


#277

Not a clue I don’t know JS :P, I was hoping someone here would know :slight_smile:


#278

If anyone is interested, you can now set an entity picture to show up on the plant card, with something like:

  customize:
    plant.miflora_1:
      friendly_name: Dragon Tree (Bedroom)
      entity_picture: /local/dragon_tree.jpg

You need to copy the image file into the www directory within your configuration folder.


#279

nice, were did you got this pictures from


#280

I have the values from my Miflora showing up now.

I’d like to do some actuation (Open a Sonoff Sv switch connected to a water valve) when the moisture values are low.

I’m keen to explore node red for this. How can I get the Miflora values into node red? I suspect I need to turn them into MQTT? Is there a guide for this?


#281

Nice! Is this based on a custom state card by any chance?
Because simply setting the entity_picture doesn’t show any images for me when using the default ha-plant-card


#282

@syphernl, no custom component required. The PR went onto the main branch and is in from about release 0.70.0. You might need to update to latest version. Also, make sure the images are in the www directory below your main configuration files.

@ViperRNMC, images by google.


#283

Odd. I’m on 0.71 but they aren’t working for me :thinking:


#284

Hmm, curious, can you check whether your plant entity has an entity_picture property set using the Developer Tools - States <> . That should at least ensure you have things configured properly. If not then post the relevant customize: section so we can see if there is any problem.

Could it be that the image format might not be supported but that feels like a long shot. Is it a common format?

Finally, if you are using Chrome then you could open the browser’s More Tools -> Developer Tools to see if there are any error messages showing.

Having said all of the above, would be interested to know if anyone else has had this problem (or better yet can confirm working for them 8)
