The specified humidity sensor for the Weatherboard is not easily available in South Africa. Is there any alternatives? Can the BMP 180 be used?
I have purchased and installed the Adafruit SHT31 humidity sensor.
It appears at 0x44 on the i2c bus and by running a small python script I can read the temperature and humidity.
I have not been successful integrating this into the software. It makes sense to get the humidity readings into outsideHumidity in the driver software, but i have not been able to figure out how to do this. Any help or suggestions will be much appreciated.
I am trying to modify the GrovePi.py driver which supplies all the sensor information to the weewx database. The code above was inserted just before the "Setup AM2315" section but I amstill battling with syntax errors.
The GrovePi driver is just a simplified version of the GroveweatherPi driver on the Switcdoc github site. There is no Arduino, my weather station uses the Grove Weather Rack board and the software runs fine.
I am trying to add the SHT31 humidity sensor which is connected to the I2C bus at address 0x44.
The software excerpt I sent you, provides temperature and humidity readings from the sensor when run from a SSH terminal.
The problem I have is to how incorporate this software in the GrovePi driver to display the readings.
