BME280 temp/humidity/pressure sensor



  • Has anyone built a node that uses the BME280 temp/humidity/pressure sensor?

    I'm guessing if I build it from scratch, the HumiditySensor example would probably be the best one to use. One thing I saw was that someone is working on an ESP8266 weather station gateway with this sensor, and in his comments, it appears that you have to do some funky stuff with moving the CE pin somewhere else or it interferes with the I2C communication for this chip. I would be doing this on a Nano, not an ESP. Are the pin changes the same?


  • Hardware Contributor

    On the ESP8266 SDA and SCL native pins are used in the radio wiring, that's why you need the funky stuff.

    No pin changes necessary on nano or promini as A4 and A5 are not used. You plug it as any other I2C sensor (just be sure to feed it with 3.3V, not 5V)



  • Awesome. I just got it working with a test sketch like 2 minutes ago. If I get a working sketch for MySensors, how can I get it uploaded to the site as an example?

    Also, if anyone has done it before, I'd appreciate any code you might have to save some time. I only get like 5 minutes here an there to work on this.

    This should work, it removes the 2-3 ESP8266 config lines:

  • Ah, looks like I just need to add "gw." in front of all of these functions and "MySensor gw;" just after the includes.


  • Hardware Contributor

    Ah yes sorry, it's for the dev branch (1.6 or now called 2.0)



  • @emc2

    Eh, looks like there's a lot more that I have to do to get this working, like moving the presentation into the setup() function.


  • Hardware Contributor

    If you are using 1.5 probably a lot more.

    Easier to install 2.0, compile and upload. It will be compatible with your 1.5 gateway anyway.



  • @emc2

    Oh, I thought that you had to upgrade the gateway as well. If that's the case, then I'll grab 2.0. Do I just go to the dev branch in github and hit download ZIP?



  • Do you have to upgrade the files on the controller to 2.0b as well? I have a vera, and when I added this new sensor on 2.0b, all of my nodes stopped updating and the tiles for them on the Devices screen doesn't list anything about the sensor like it normally does.

    I get these errors in the Vera logs:

    02	05/06/16 18:54:40.167	Device_Service::MatchupUpnpServices no upnp service for urn:upnp-arduino-cc:serviceId:arduino1 <0x2ac17000>
    02	05/06/16 18:54:40.170	Device_Service::MatchupUpnpServices no upnp service for urn:upnp-arduino-cc:serviceId:arduinonode1 <0x2ac17000>
    02	05/06/16 18:54:40.171	Device_Service::MatchupUpnpServices no upnp service for urn:upnp-arduino-cc:serviceId:arduinonode1 <0x2ac17000>```
    

    Also, the MySensors parent device disappeared from my Devices page in Vera. If I telnet to my gateway on port 5003, I only see the new sensor reporting as well, not any of my other sensors. Did the 2.0b sensor do something bad to my gateway or the Vera plugin?

    Update: I deleted the new devices created from the 2.0b sensor in my Vera. This fixed it so the other node information showed up again, and the MySensors parent device showed up. But, my 1.5 sensors were no longer updating. I restarted them, and they started updating.

    If 2.0 sensors are designed to be backwards compatible with a 1.5 gateway and 1.5 controller code, then there's a problem somewhere. Maybe it's with the Vera code. But, like I said, I telneted to port 5003 on my gateway, and the only thing that the gateway was receiving was the data from my 2.0b sensor. Either the gateway was ignoring the 1.5 sensors, or the 1.5 sensors stopped sending for some reason.

    Thoughts?

  • @hek

    Let me know if you make a change and need me to test.



  • @emc2 or anybody:

    Does anyone have a working BME280 mysensors arduino sketch? The code above states include mysensor.h now it is mysensorS.h, so I have renamed, but it won't compile, it says:

    In function 'void setup()':
    
    bme280:252: error: 'getConfig' was not declared in this scope
    

    I have a MySensors Gateway USB
    Version: 2.1.1 (arduino nano) with Domoticz, and I would like to use the bme280 for a battery powered outdoor temp/humidity/barometer (as DHT22 does not like battery level below 3.3V, and I would run on 2x1.5V AA)

    Thanks


  • Hardware Contributor

    Was modified in 2.1.1, you need to change

    metric = getConfig().isMetric;
    

    to

    metric = getControllerConfig().isMetric;  // was getConfig().isMetric; before MySensors v2.1.1

  • @emc2 Thanks! With this modification the sketch compiled successfully. Today I had time, so put everything together, and the BME280 works with the 2.4GH radio, temp/hum/pressure all reporting like they should.

    Using arduino pro mini, bme280, nrf24, 2XAA Batteries. It reports to the mysensors serial gw, and then shown in domoticz.



  • @yoshida Hello
    You can share your sketch.
    Please
    I can not make modifications.
    I still have a lot of errors.

  • @yoshida Thank you very much.
    As soon as I find time I will check it out.

    Yes checked, sketch works.
    Thanks yoshida.
    Please note that the library BME_MOD-1022.h consists of two parts: file-h, and file cpp.


  • Mod

    I am using the one from adafruit : what's the difference with this other library?



  • @gohan I have been using both libraries with a chinese module I bought from Aliexpress. I did not notice any differences apart from size and maybe a module address, which you can change in either library.



  • I used the last sketch posed by Yoshida and for some reason whenever the temp and humidity goes through a stretch where there isn't any change, it's as if the node goes into a deep sleep and doesn't come out of it until I hit the reset on a pro mini.

    I have it plunged in and not on batteries, so no need for any deep sleep. Is there anything I can change in the sketch? I'm still fairly new at this, although I'm having a blast.

    Thanks,



  • @bluezr1 Interesting... 🙂 I used it with a pro mini as well, and my problem was that it ate up the batteries in 2 weeks... 😄 So I would need more deep sleep for the same sketch 😄

    But for that 2 weeks, it was working well. Temp/Hum/Baro updated every minute.


  • Mod

    @yoshida did you do the modifications (remove led and regulator) recommended at https://www.mysensors.org/build/battery ?

    My storage room sensor (https://forum.mysensors.org/topic/7227/esp8266-wifi-gateway-with-rssi-for-rfm69-and-wifi ) uses the bme280. Not sure if that sketch is any help, but you are welcome to use it. It is much much simpler than the sketch posted above though.



  • @mfalkvidd good question, yes I have removed the two leds I found, but I am too lame to remove the voltage regulator 😞 I have read here that the most consuming part is the LED(s)

    @scalpel - works great! Thank you!!
    Downloaded the library from the link in your sketch and up and running i no time.
    Here is my sketch, with some modifications:

    • Lightsensor A0
    • No sleep (might want to enable repeater function later)
    • Sends every 5 minute regardless of prevoius value (I use Domoticz and want to avoid red nodes and combined nodes).
    • Fixed node it

  • Hi...i am a new user here. I built a RFM69 gateway and a node.I decided to place the RFM69 node in a basement storage room. The room has been flooded a few times historically, so being able to monitor humidity in the room seems like a good idea.The room has thick brick walls, which the RFM69-433MHz radio is much more capable to handle than the nrf24. Still, I wanted to keep an eye on the signal strength. Because of this, I added code to the gateway to report RSSI from the node.
