OpenMQTTGateway now reads Xiaomi Mijia Temperature and Humidity sensor

In the path of integrating BLE devices to OpenMQTTGateway I have found the Xiaomi Mi Jia Humidity and temperature sensor to be a good candidate.

This little indoor sensor is able to measure temperature and humidity and to transmit these data by bluetooth low energy to your smartphone.




As we already integrated another BLE device (Mi Flora) why not extending the integration scope of OpenMQTTGateway to this one.

I ordered one to see if I was able to extract data from it. After a few weeks, I received it, a first test with nRF connect application showed me that this device diffuses data in a quite similar way compared to Mi Flora (using BLE service data exposition).

From this point I had to determine the differences between the data sent from mi flora and the data sent from mi jia hum & temp sensor. The reverse engineering was similar to the one done with Mi Flora and with some offset implementation in the program I was able to read easily the humidity and temperature of the sensor.

You can find now these two values on a mqtt broker:
home/OpenMQTTGateway/BTtoMQTT/4C6WWWWWWC79/name MJ_HT_V1
home/OpenMQTTGateway/BTtoMQTT/4C6WWWWWWC79 -87

home/OpenMQTTGateway/BTtoMQTT/4C6WWWWWW3C79/tem 19.7

home/OpenMQTTGateway/BTtoMQTT/4C6WWWWWWC79/name MJ_HT_V1
home/OpenMQTTGateway/BTtoMQTT/4C6WWWWWWC79 -85
home/OpenMQTTGateway/BTtoMQTT/4C6WWWWWWC79/hum 50.7

As with the Mi Flora the values are diffused one per scan (you get temp on one scan and hum on the second or again the temp) indeed diffusion of value or another is handled by the sensor not the gateway.

  1. Hi!
    What about reading historical data from the sensor ?

    With Mi Flora it's possible

  2. Hi, It's possible in mi flora by connecting to the sensor, currently it is not the reading method used. But could be added in the future. For mi jia I don't know if it stores history data.

433toMQTTto433 - Bidirectional ESP8266 NodeMCU gateway between RF 433Mhz signal and MQTT

The goal  is to act as a gateway between 433Mhz sensors and a MQTT broker or between the MQTT broker and 433Mhz actuators, It enables to: receive MQTT data from a topic and send RF 433Mhz signal corresponding to the received MQTT data  publish MQTT data to a different topic related to received 433Mhz signal  It can be an interesting part in an home automation system so as to interface sensors and actuators (wall sockets) with software like openhab . List of compatible sensors here The interest of putting this gateway to an ESP8266 and not on a raspberry pi is to be able to manage security actions at gateway level (power on a siren, cut power to certain devices) following RF data received by sensors without being dependent to the PI for security related actions. [EDIT] all infos are now centralized into  the github repository  take a look at it you will find up to date info about OpenMQTTGateway You need: Software: Mosquitto Arduino IDE latest version (tested ok with 1.6.10

Infrared IR, 433mhz and MQTT on ESP8266 bidirectional gateway OpenMQTTGateway

Following discussions on the home assistant forum people gave me the idea to add Infrared communication to the 433mhz gateway.  The goal is to act as a gateway between 433Mhz sensors, infrared remote controls and a MQTT broker or between the MQTT broker and 433Mhz actuators, infrared devices, It enables to: receive MQTT data from a topic and send RF 433Mhz signal corresponding to the received MQTT data  publish MQTT data to a different topic related to received 433Mhz signal  receive MQTT data from a topic and send infrared signal corresponding to the received MQTT data  publish MQTT data to a different topic related to received infrared signal  It can be an interesting part in an home automation system so as to interface sensors and actuators (wall sockets), your tv, home cinema, hifi ... with software like  openhab  or home assistant . List of compatible RF sensors here [EDIT] all infos are now centralized into the github repository  take a look at it you will find up to d

SONOFF RF BRIDGE + Pilight or How to extend the supported protocols by our little bridge

With version V0.9 of OpenMQTTGateway  @steadramon  &  @puuu  (the ESP library creator) enabled by their work to integrate Pilight library on OMG. Permiting to increase significantly the list of RF protocols of OMG . But now that we have this interesting possibility and with the goal of OMG of beiing multi boards compatible, why not trying to put Pilight on a Sonoff RF Bridge . So as to do this test I ordered a new one so as to be on the same hardware as most of the users (my other RF Bridge is a demonstration old one) So as to decode RF signals the Sonoff RF Bridge has a special dedicated chip (EFM8BB1)  that communicate with the esp8285 with a serial connection. If we want to increase the number of RF protocols compatibles on the device without modifying the hardware, the only software based solution is to hack the  EFM8BB1. This hack is available and made by @ Portisch . The list of protocol is interesting but at the moment not as big as Pilight one. Maybe I will t
