Air Quality Info & Raspberry Pi (+Home Weather Station)

Post by jasonmfarrow »

Not being able to afford (or ship) a Purple Air AQI sensor I bought a Nova SDS011 AQI sensor kit https://amazon.co.uk/Bluelover-Precisio ... 547&sr=8-4 which measures PM2.5 and PM10 air quality. There are many places to get this sensor kit.

I connected this sensor into my Raspberry Pi and with a bit of Python and PHP I now have 15-min reporting of AQI data.

This can be seen via https://jmfweather.uk the Air Quality link is in the footer.

The code for this is a modified version of the https://Weather34.com Home Weather Station air quality template.

I've also got the data uploading to aqicn.org which has worldwide data from both official stations and volunteer stations. https://aqicn.org/station for the map of volunteer stations world wide. https://aqicn.org/station/united-kingdo ... basings39/ for my specific station.

If anyone wants AQI data and has a Raspberry Pi and would like the code I can post it here.

Jason
