    flowerpower2mqtt

    Publish values from Parrot Flower Power to MQTT

    This project just connects Sandeep Mistry's awesome Node module to MQTT - all credits belong to him.

    Getting started

    You need Node.js. Since this depends on Noble you have to fulfill the prerequisites documented in the Noble readme. On apt based Linux a sudo apt-get install bluetooth bluez-utils libbluetooth-dev libudev-dev should be enough.

    Then install flowerpower2mqtt: sudo npm install flowerpower2mqtt -g and take a look at the available command line options by typing flowerpower2mqtt --help

    MQTT Topics & Payloads

    Topic and payload structure follows mqtt-smarthome architecture. Default prefix is "flower".

    These topics are published in a configurable interval with retain flag set to true

    • <prefix>/status/<device>/soilTemperature (°C)
    • <prefix>/status/<device>/soilMoisture (%)
    • <prefix>/status/<device>/soilElectricalConductivity (mS/cm)
    • <prefix>/status/<device>/airTemperature (°C)
    • <prefix>/status/<device>/sunlight
    • <prefix>/status/<device>/batteryLevel (%)
    • <prefix>/status/<device>/led

    These topics are subscribed. You should publish to them with retain flag set to false

    • <prefix>/set/<device>/led - If you publish a message to this topic the LED will start fading up and down for given number of seconds. Accepts plain and JSON payload.

    Todo

    • connection handling - keep connection alive for configurable timeout
    • enable/disable live mode
    • fw 1.1 support - calibrated values
