BME280 Raspberry


I would like to setup a BME280 in addition to my TSL2561 and BMP180…just for fun. I tried piggy-backing the SCL and SDA pins from BME280 to SCL & SDA. I know the pi is picking up the signal when I SSH and use i2cdetect. I can’t figure out how to set it up with Cayenne. The digital generic sensor option needs the channel…which I don’t know how to figure this out. In any case, I don’t know how to get all three outputs (temp, humid, pres) to show up. Ideas?


Hi @drmcrouthamel,

Just to clarify, you are trying to read the BME280 with the Raspberry Pi, right?



Yes. But anything (arduino, esp) would work.

Hi @drmcrouthamel,

I apologize for the late reply. Here is a project that uses the BME280:

The code is in there to use on an ESP :slight_smile: I hope this helps! Share your project once you are done with it too?
