pilight sensor platform for 433 MHz devices uses a value in the message payload as the sensor value. Unique identifiers (e.g. uuid) can be set to distinguish between multiple pilight devices. To use a pilight sensor the pilight home assistant hub has to be set up.
To use your sensor via pilight, make sure it is supported and add the following to your
# Example configuration.yml entry sensor: - platform: pilight variable: temperature payload: uuid: '0000-b8-27-eb-f447d3'
- variable (Required): The variable name in the data stream that defines the sensor value.
- payload (Required): Message payload identifiers. Only if all identifiers are matched the sensor value is set.
- name (Optional): Name of the sensor.
- unit_of_measurement (Optional): Defines the units of measurement of the sensor, if any.
This section shows a real life example how to use values of a weather station.
# Example configuration.yml entry sensor: - platform: pilight name: 'Temperature' variable: 'temperature' payload: uuid: 0000-b8-27-eb-f1f72e unit_of_measurement: '°C' - platform: pilight name: 'Humidity' variable: 'humidity' payload: uuid: 0000-b8-27-eb-f1f72e unit_of_measurement: '%' - platform: pilight name: 'Battery' variable: 'battery' payload: uuid: 0000-b8-27-eb-f1f72e unit_of_measurement: '%'
