Home ventilation filter status - Pressure sensor MPX2010DP

Is there any way to integrate difference pressure sensor MPX2010DP into mysensors? Did somebody played already with this sensor?
Or is there some better way - sensor to measure filter pollution in ventilation system, integrable into mysensors ?
@mikee You would want the MPX5010DP instead to get a 5V analog output for Arduino ADC, but still - to detect increased filter pressure drop I'd say you'll need 10Pa resolution. With MPX5010DP you'll get 10kPa/1024=9.75, i.e. OK. I guess you'd be able to detect something despite the noise, but not an early warning or trending. (You would want a 0..1kPa range sensor or something instead to do that. I don't now which one.)
Give it a try and please report back!
If you search the internet for "arduino MPX2010DP" you'll find a few projects measuring water level.
