Meshtastic Telemetry Enhance Your Meshtastic Node Device with Sensor Packages: BME280 & BMP280

Measure and Broadcast Environmental Data such as Temperature, Air Pressure and Humidity

Upgrade Your Meshtastic Node with Telemetry Capabilities

Upgrade your Meshtastic Node device to a whole new level by adding sensor packages like the BME280 and BMP280. These compact sensor boards can not only measure temperature and air pressure but also humidity, opening up a wide array of applications from outdoor weather monitoring stations to indoor environmental control systems.

Meshtastic Telemetry

Installation Made Simple

Installing these sensor packages couldn’t be simpler. You’ll need to connect the ground, 3.3v power, and the data wires to the appropriate pins on your node device. Identifying the correct pins for the I2C connection is crucial. For instance, if you’re using a Heltec V3 device like me, SDA should be connected to PIN 41 and SCL to PIN 42.

Configuring Telemetry Settings

Once the board is connected, the next step is to configure your node’s Telemetry Settings. Enable the Metrics module and set your desired update intervals. After saving these settings, your device will reboot, and you should now see the metrics available in the node database list, accessible either locally or remotely via another node.

Compatibility Across Devices

The installation process remains fairly consistent across most Meshtastic compatible devices such as the Heltec V3, Heltec Wireless Tracker, LILYGO T Beam, and LILLYGO T Echo. However, for those seeking even more convenience, RAK Wireless WisBlock devices offer plug-and-play options that are user-friendly.

Unlocking Crucial Environmental Insights

By integrating these sensor packages into your Meshtastic Node, you unlock the capability to gather and broadcast crucial environmental data. Whether you’re a hobbyist tracking weather patterns or an entrepreneur monitoring controlled environments, these upgrades provide invaluable insights.
