Get your BLE sensors data into Home Assistant in a snap without ESP32

 The power of OpenMQTTGateway BLE is now accessible without an ESP32 and can be installed to Home Assistant in a snap.  Theengs Gateway can be installed as an  Addon in Home Assistant thanks to the work of Mihai Ambrosie Here is the process in a few step: Open Home Assistant and navigate to the "Add-on Store". Click on the 3 dots (top right) and select "Repositories". Enter https://github.com/mihsu81/addon-theengsgw in the box and click on "Add." You should now see "TheengsGateway HA Add-on" at the bottom list. Click on "TheengsGateway", then click "Install". Under the "Configuration" tab, change the settings appropriately (at least MQTT parameters). See Parameters. Start the Add-on. No need of creating YAML configuration for the sensors, they are automatically created in the Devices and Entities section. From this, they can be easily added to your dashboards and automation.

OpenMQTTGateway BLE on Windows, Raspberry Pi or Apple MAC !

  From a   long time   it was asked if OpenMQTTGateway could run on a Raspberry Pi. 100% 75% 50% image With the externalization of the part of OMG BLE code into  Theengs Decoder  and the multi-platform compatibility of the library, the doors were wide open to it. By integrating  Theengs Decoder  into a Python script we made a multi-platform  BLE to MQTT gateway  that can run on a Raspberry Pi, Unix, Windows, MAC, and many more. So now if you have a server with a BLE component you can retrieve decoded BLE sensors data and publish those to MQTT. Cherry on the cake,  TheengsGateway  use the same API as OpenMQTTGateway, so it will act in concert with your existing ESP based OpenMQTTGateway. If you use auto-discovery with OMG the sensors data will be automatically retrieved from  TheengsGateway  also! If you have Python and Pip this is as simple as one command: pip install TheengsGateway Full documentation can be found below: theengs.github.io Theengs gateway Multi platform MQTT gateway lev
