TEMPer Sensor

This temper sensor platform allows you to get the current temperature from a TEMPer device.

To use your TEMPer sensor in your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
  - platform: temper

Configuration option:

  • name (Optional): The name you would like to give the sensor in Home Assistant.
  • scale (Optional): The scale for the sensor.
  • offset (Optional): The offset to fix reported vales.

Since some of these sensors consistently show higher temperatures the scale and offset values can be used to fine-tune your sensor. The calculation follows the formula scale * sensor value + offset.

The TEMPer sensors can only be accessed as root by default. To fix the USB permissions on your system create the file /etc/udev/rules.d/99-tempsensor.rules and add the following line to it:

SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ACTION=="add", ATTRS{idVendor}=="0c45", ATTRS{idProduct}=="7401", MODE="666"

After that re-plug the device and restart Home Assistant.
