Raspberry PI GPIO Binary Sensor


The rpi_gpio binary sensor platform allows you to read sensor values of the GPIOs of your Raspberry Pi.

To use your Raspberry Pi’s GPIO in your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
binary_sensor:
  - platform: rpi_gpio
    ports:
      11: PIR Office
      12: PIR Bedroom

Configuration variables:

  • ports array (Required): Array of used ports.
    • port: name (Required): Port numbers and corresponding names.
  • pull_mode (Optional): The internal pull to use (UP or DOWN). Default is UP.
  • bouncetime (Optional): The time in milliseconds for port debouncing. Default is 50ms.
  • invert_logic (Optional): If true, inverts the output logic to ACTIVE LOW. Default is false (ACTIVE HIGH).
