Xiaomi Mi Flora [Temp/Light/Moisture] BLE Sensor

Post by burton666 » Sunday 11 September 2016 19:35

I found this Plant-sensor on aliexpress and it looked rally great had alot of features and was pretty ceap (~10$)

It uses BLE and you are supposed to use Xiaomi's crappy app but I just found this page where some person had decoded the "protocol"

Is there some chance to integrate this into domoticz? and how would I add an Bluetooth reciever to be able to recieve those "messages"

I've been doing a kind of "integration" like this with a BLE bathroom scale here.
It's a python script talking to the BT dongle and updating a virtual sensor in Domoticz.
So yes: there is a chance getting the data into Domoticz but not with a few mouseclicks...

Mi product are good, but They don't Provid any API or source to let them add to a home automation (éven sometime some home automation MI product aren't usable each other)

And rememebre That Mi mark is China only, no support for their product in Europe.

Subscribe. Any progress on this? For the price (10$) It is even hard to build your own esp8266 temp/light/moisture sensor.

I'm interested in how well this works detecting moisture, anyone got theirs yet?
Question about the Xiaomi Gateway in Domoticz? Please check the Wiki first: https://www.domoticz.com/wiki/Xiaomi_Gateway_(Aqara)

But how can domoticz handle the BT LE? With another dongle? Or with mysensors?

The Mi Flora is using Bluetooth LE, not Zigbee..
The other Mi items.. probably Zigbee but how open/standard it is needs to be tested.

Do you have plans to support Mi Flora? :) (I've noticed there's an initial sniffing for BT LE).
