Bh1750 support

Does anyone know how to connect a bh1750 luminosity sensor with Cayenne? I am new to Raspberry Pi but Cayenne is definitely making things easier for me. I am also looking to connect a generic 20x4 lcd screen that displays the data but if I can start with the sensor first it would be a great help!

You have to use MQTT and Raspberry Pi.

Hi Steve, welcome to the Cayenne Community.

To get started with that, you can read up on our MQTT API here.

Specifically I’d look at this section where we walk through adding a Raspberry Pi and sending sensor data via MQTT. You should be able to take that basic concept and customize it to the data coming from your BH1750

Thanks for the responses everyone! I’ll be jumping into MQTT today.
