Pimatic support for the bh1750 light intensity sensor

Drivers

I2C drivers need to be loaded in order to create the connection between the physical sensor and the rPI. You can load them from the terminal (or from the /etc/modules script).

sudo modprobe i2c_dev
sudo modprobe i2c_bcm2708

You might also need to uncomment the following line in /boot/config.txt

dtparam=i2c_arm=on

Example config

Add the plugin to the plugin section:

{ 
  "plugin": "bh1750"
}

Then add a sensor for your device to the devices section:

{
  "id": "my-sensor",
  "name": "bh1750 example",
  "class": "BH1750Sensor",
  "device": "/dev/i2c-0",
  "address": "0x23",
  "interval": 10000
}
