Type Quick App

This QuickApp reads the PM2.5, PM10, Temperature, Humidity and Air Pressure values directly from a sensor. With this sensor you can measure air quality yourself. This QuickApp will send notifications when PM2.5 or PM10 readings reach a breakpoint. 

The Air Quality sensor is a DIY setup for less than 50 euro. It is very easy to assemble and ready to make kits are available, see also https://sensor.community/en/sensors/airrohr/ for more info. 

You can order seperate items from for example AliExpress for the lowest prices, or order a complete set from: 
https://nettigo.eu/products/sensor-community-kit-sds011-bme280-english-language or

The Air Quality Sensor has a WiFi interface and Application Programming Interface (API). This QuickApp uses the API to get the measurements available to the Fibaro Homecenter. 

My configuration of the DIY air quality sensor:

  • Nova SDS011 air quality sensor
  • NodeMCU ESP8266 V2 opensource WiFi board
  • BME280 temperature, humidity and air pressure sensor

See how to simply assemble the air quality sensor yourself: https://sensor.community/en/sensors/airrohr/
See for general informatie about the Air Quality Sensor: https://luftdaten.info
See for a map of measurements: https://sensor.community/en/
See for CVS files: https://archive.luftdaten.info
See for sources: https://github.com/opendata-stuttgart/

Variables mandatory (they will be automaticaly added with the default values):

  • IPaddress = IP address of your sensor
  • Path = Path behind the IP address, normally /data.json
  • Interval = Number in seconds, the sensor normally is updated every 145 seconds
  • UserID = User id to notify of PM2.5 / PM10 breakpoints
  • bme280Sensor = Use of BME280 temperature, humidity and air pressure sensor, true or false

PM2.5 breakpoints:

0 - 30        GOOD (Minimal)
31 - 60      SATISFACTORY (Minor breathing discomfort to sensitive people)
61 - 90      MODERATELY POLLUTED Breathing discomfort to asthma patients, elderly and children
91 - 120    POOR (Breathing discomfort to all)
121 - 250  VERY POOR (Respiratory illness on prolonged exposure)
250+         SEVERE (Health impact even on light physical work. Serious impact on people with heart/lung disease)

PM10 breakpoints

0 - 50        GOOD (Minimal)
51 - 100    SATISFACTORY (Minor breathing discomport to sensitive people)
101 - 250  MODERATELY POLLUTED Breathing discomfoort to asthma patients, elderly and children
251 - 350  POOR (Breathing discomfort to all)
351 - 430  VERY POOR (Respiratory illness on prolonged exposure)
430+         SEVERE (Health impact even on light physical work. Serious impact on people with heart/lung disease)
