How do I add a sensor to my dashboard?


#1

I just got started with myDevices. I have it installed on my Raspberry Pi Zero and I can control the gpio pins to do things like mess with my wife with a 2 color led…. lol
My question is this.
I have a BMP180 hooked up to the i2c port and I can get data from it using python scripts just fine.
The forums says it is a supported device but how do I get it to show up on my dashboard?
I had a look at your Tutorial on hooking it up, I have searched for this problem, and I can find no solution.
I would like to see how it works with your system.

Thanks in advance for any help.

When you are in the dashboard click on Add new… then click Device. From that page click on the pressure group and then click the BMP180. From there fill in the required info and then Add Sensor and you’re good to go!

Thank you guys. Now that I know where that is, I’ll be trying out more stuff.
This is Soooo much easier than Blynk or InitialState……

Can I add a graph and gauge for the same sensor?

Right now, no. I guess we haven’t received much feedback from the community for this… What are you trying to accomplish?

P.S. we’re working on a feature where each sensor widget (gauge, value display, etc.) actually has the option to view a graph with it. I’m hoping this will satisfy your need when its released.
