SubType for BMP085 temperature/Barometric pressure sensor

Post by asm7100 » Monday 19 October 2015 22:18

Hi
Is it possible to make a subtype for BMP085/BMP180 temperature/Barometric pressure sensor.

You have for

Code: Select all

Temp + Humidity + Baro	THB1 - BTHR918, BTHGN129	0.0 C, 50 %, 1010 hPa
And thanks for the god work :-)

Its just an indication, soon maybe we should just write Temp+Hum+Baro without a type
Quality outlives Quantity!

The problem is that it has 3 values, that give one false on the floorplan like in the picture here. The Hum is there not :-)

I think I have same need for BMP280 (Temperature & Pressure): why isn't there a virtual sensor for Temperature & Pressure?

There is a sensor for Temperature & Pressure & Humidity, Temperature & Humidity, but nothing for Temperature & Pressure.

Why is there still no "Temperature + Barometer" (or any naming variation) available in the virtual device types list?

It is pretty lame that there has not been any single response from the Domoticz Team for 2 years to this and similar posts. :(

Bare in mind this is an Open Source project and dev's spend their spare time in developing this for free for you. You can always contribute yourself to the project if you want.

It is lame that there has not been any response in 2 years. I did not say that it is lame that it has not been implemented.
'Funny' that you responded almost instantly, but unfortunately it does not contribute to the topic.

I am quite surprised having bumped into this lack of functionality because it is quite common, not something exotic and others have asked similar questions in the last 2 years.

It is weird that BMP085 is supported as subtype on hardware "Local I2C bus" but has not been added as a virtual device type. So it is unsupported on any remote device, MQTT, whatever.

If adding new virtual device types to Domoticz would be well documented I might have added a 'Temp+Baro' virtual device type myself but it is not. I have scanned part of the domoticz source code and it appears not evident. For an experienced domoticz dev it will take relatively little time to add a 'Temp+Baro' virtual device type because 'Temp+Hum+Baro' already exists which can be copied and simplified.
For me to do this I would have to spend much time to first study how the internals of Domoticz work while I only want to add a rather generic simple barometric sensor that reports temperature and barometric pressure. As a virtual device so I can use it with MQTT. A virtual device so it does not even require any code to be written for implementing specific hardware.

As a workaround, can't you use a separate Temp and Baro meter virtual devices?

Temp+Baro sensor was just added by gizmocuz into the beta.
