BMP280 Temperature+Pressure Sensor

The bmp280 sensor platform allows you to use your BMP280 (datasheet, Adafruit) temperature and pressure sensors with esphomelib. The I²C is required to be set up in your configuration for this sensor to work.

BMP280 Temperature and Pressure Sensor.

# Example configuration entry
sensor:
  - platform: bmp280
    temperature:
      name: "Outside Temperature"
      oversampling: 16x
    pressure:
      name: "Outside Pressure"
    address: 0x77
    update_interval: 15s

Configuration variables:

  • temperature (Required): The information for the temperature. sensor
    • name (Required, string): The name for the temperature sensor.
    • oversampling (Optional): The oversampling parameter for the temperature sensor. See Oversampling Options.
    • id (Optional, ID): Set the ID of this sensor for use in lambdas.
    • All other options from Sensor and MQTT Component.
  • pressure (Required): The information for the pressure sensor.
    • name (Required, string): The name for the pressure sensor.
    • oversampling (Optional): The oversampling parameter for the temperature sensor. See Oversampling Options.
    • id (Optional, ID): Set the ID of this sensor for use in lambdas.
    • All other options from Sensor and MQTT Component.
  • address (Optional, int): Manually specify the i^2c address of the sensor. Defaults to 0x77. Another address can be 0x76.
  • iir_filter (Optional): Set up an Infinite Impulse Response filter to increase accuracy. One of OFF, 2x, 4x, 16x. Defaults to OFF.
  • update_interval (Optional, Time): The interval to check the sensor. Defaults to 15s. See update_interval gotchas.

Pins on the BMP280. Only VCC, GND, SCL, and SDA need to be connected.

Oversampling Options

By default, the BMP280 sensor measures each value 16 times when requesting a new value. You can, however, configure this amount. Possible oversampling values:

  • NONE
  • 1x
  • 2x
  • 4x
  • 8x
  • 16x (default)
