My ESP8266 + Plantower AQ sensor project
This project is an ESP8266 combined with an AQ sensor and temp / humidity sensor. I have these set up around my house so I can monitor air quality and temp. It broadcasts the sensor information over UDP, and anything listening for the UDP broadcasts can decode the information and use it.
Here is a photo of the completed project:
The sensor gets power over USB. When you power the sensor up, it will create an ad-hoc wifi network. You can connect to that network then configure the sensor with the network you want it to connect to.
There is a sample client in
client.rb. It will listen for sensor data then
print it to the terminal. You should decide what to do with that data.
Personally, I am feeding it in to an InfluxDB and then using Grafana to plot
