    What sensor did you buy? I have an older one with "just" CO2 but the pm stuff sounds great.

        Nice, exactly what I need. Just need a bit more money because it is quite expensive (but as I already have the CO2 sensor, it is probably really worth it!)

          Al,

          Super helpful as usual!
          I was able to get my Light Sensor seemingly running. It generated a link, and it matched what I expected.

          http://<IP>/JSON?request=controldevicebyvalue&ref=221&value=%LUX%

          The value was not updating, even though I saw it updating in the config.vair page. So, I manually copied the link into a browser and I get "error" as feedback. I tried to mimic your setup, but am apparently missing something. Any idea why my JSON access is saying error? Under setup->Network I have JSON control enabled.

            Also, saw under the advanced tab, found the 221 value.
            Confirmed with the below and checking the log:

            &hs.writelog "test",hs.GetDeviceRefByName("Virtual vAir Light Level")

              Hi Dan,

              On device 221, make sure to set the Status-Control to Both, not Status for the values under the Status Graphics tab. Also, make sure the device is not set to a Status Only Device under the Configuration tab.

              Cheers
              Al

                Additionally to what others have replied, make sure device 221 allows for the range of values for %LUX%. Do this on the device's "Status Graphics" tab.

                  Al, Len,

                  Thanks! Al - your solution was it. I had it set to status only. Strange that a status only thing needs to be able to be controlled...I guess in some sense that makes some sense...

                  Len - thanks for the tip. I've adjusted beyond what I think will come in. I'll perform some tests later on and ensure I get that tightened up. I guess I'm not sure it matters in my case if I set the "values" too long.

                  I'm off an running!

                    I usually close my bedroom doors at night and CO2 build up could be an issue during times of the year that the HVAC isn't running much. Turning on the fan mode would redistribute air throughout the house and lower the CO2 in areas where it is concentrated.


                    I use HS3 to turn on the HVAC periodically during the night to help keep temperature more even and to provide "fresh" air to the bedrooms. Is there really a need to measure the CO2 level?

                      That depends. Is your HVAC actually providing fresh air? Many HVAC systems simply circulate the same stale air around your house and don't actually bring in fresh air from outside. In older homes, this may be fine, since there is likely enough ventilation around windows, doors, etc. However, newer homes are often sealed much more tightly. Many will have HRVs or ERVs to bring in fresh air.

                      I have a home that is sealed very well and an HRV to bring in fresh air. I am looking for a CO2 monitor to integrate into HomeSeer so I can turn on my HRV and air handler blower when a certain threshold is exceeded.

                      Unfortunately, the product in this thread is not currently available. I tried Awair, but they don't currently offer an open API, and their IFTTT recipes are very limited.

                      Oh well. I guess I'll keep looking.

                        Works perfect with Homeseer.

                          Not able to set Wifi

                          Recently I stumbled over the Single Beam CO2 monitor that I ordered a long time ago.
                          Never took the time to connect it to HS but today I thought I'll give it a try.

                          Unfortunately it won't connect to my wifi network.

                          Via my COM port I managed to establish a connection with the device through the vThings Configuration Utility (Chrome App), Putty, and the Arduino IDE. I tried "Setup: Wifi" in the chrome app, "Serial line" with Putty and "Serial Monitor" with Arduino IDE but in all cases I only receive "Cannot send data. No Wifi connection" as output from the device.
                          In Putty and Arduino IDE the monitor doesn't display anything else (no menu).

                          Anyone any idea?
