This sensor sends the temperature of a room with a precision below 0.2°C, and a measure range from 0°C to 40°C. The sensor checks the temperature every 100sec. If the temperature changed for more than 0.5°C compare to previous value, the new temperature is sent to the Gateway. Without any variation, the temperature is sent every 15 minutes.
Install EnOcean stuff
A EnOcean USB dongle is needed and a EnOcean software should be installed once: Installing EnOcean Stuff.
Register the sensor
On the back, you can find the learn button.
A new node will be created (you get notified to refresh the browser to see it on the workspace).
The Number on the right is a unique identifier of the sensor
Build the flow
This node provides temperature information on the flow: - msg.payload contains the value - msg.message contains a message for a human
Lets use the Display node to see the result:
Lets now use the debug node to see the technical internal content of the message flow.
Use the tutorial Dashboard to add the dashboard nodes and use a chart node:
How to use the sensor
Some other ideas to use this sensor:
- Create a chart with the values by sending them to Ubidots.com
- trigger a red light is the temperature goes over an alert value
