This custom component is an alternative for the standard build in mitemp_bt integration that is available in Home Assistant. Unlike the original
mitemp_bt integration, which is getting its data by polling the device with a default five-minute interval, this custom component is parsing the Bluetooth Low Energy packets payload that is constantly emitted by the sensor. The packets payload may contain temperature/humidity/battery and other data.
Advantage of this integration is that it doesn’t affect the battery as much as the built-in integration. It also solves connection issues some people have with the standard integration (due to passivity and the ability to collect data from multiple bt-interfaces simultaneously). Read more in the FAQ.
(round body, segment LCD, broadcasts temperature, humidity and battery, about 20 readings per minute)
(rectangular body, E-Ink, broadcasts temperature and humidity, about 20 readings per minute, no battery info)
(round body, E-Ink, broadcasts temperature, humidity and battery, about 20 readings per minute)
(MiFlora, broadcasts temperature, moisture, illuminance, conductivity, 1 reading per minute, no battery info with firmware v3.2.1)
(VegTrug Grow Care Garden, similar to MiFlora HHCCJCY01)
(FlowerPot, RoPot, broadcasts moisture and conductivity, 2 readings per minute, no battery info with firmware v1.2.6)
(small square body, segment LCD, broadcasts temperature and humidity once in about 10 minutes and battery once in an hour, advertisements are encrypted, therefore you need to set the key in your configuration, see for instructions the encryptors option.
(Cleargrass (Qingping) CGD1 alarm clock, segment LCD, broadcasts temperature and humidity (once in a 3 minutes?), and the battery (we do not have accurate periodicity information yet), advertisements are encrypted, therefore you need to set the key in your configuration, the procedure is similar to the LYWSD03MMC sensor.
The amount of actually received data is highly dependent on the reception conditions (like distance and electromagnetic ambiance), readings numbers are indicated for good RSSI (Received Signal Strength Indicator) of about -75 till -70dBm.
