Warning: this project is a fork of @grover's homebridge-flower-sensor project.
Integrate Parrot Flower Power, the Parrot Pot or the never released Parrot H2O into HomeKit using homebridge. This plugin does not depend upon the now discontinued Parrot Cloud by talking directly to the sensors using a Bluetooth Low Energy connection.
This plugin exposes the following capabilities of the Flower Power sensor to HomeKit:
- Soil Temperature
- Soil Moisture
- Ambient Light Level
- Identifying the sensor flashes the built-in LED
- Monitor the battery status of the Flower Power sensor
- Provides date/time the sensor data was last retrieved
- Provides the date/time the batteries were last changed
- 24h average low light level sensor trigger for plant recommendations
- 24h average low humidity level sensor trigger to remind you to water your plants
These capabilities are specific to the Parrot Pot:
- Start watering
- In Elgato Eve, see the type of program (manual or automatic) for watering. (Accessory type Irrigation system)
- Water level in the tank
- Triggering of a too low water level sensor in the tank (< 15%)
There're more capabilities planned for the future. And see the CHANGELOG for release information.
Using this plugin
To use this plugin I recommend a Raspberry Pi Zero W. You can monitor multiple Flower Power devices in one homebridge on one Raspberry Pi Zero W.
Please be aware of the limitations and coexistance with other plugins using Bluetooth:
This platform and the switches it creates have been verified to work with the following apps on iOS 11 (tested on iOS 13.4.1):
- Elgato Eve
