# LuftdatenInfo Binding

Binding for the Sensor Community (opens new window). The community provides instructions to build sensors on your own and they can be integrated into the database. With this binding you can integrate your sensor, a sensor nearby or even any sensors you want into openHAB.

# Supported Things

Three Things are supported

Name Thing Type ID Description
Particulate Sensor particulate measure particulate matter PM2.5 and PM10
Conditions Sensor condition measures environment conditions like temperature, humidity and some also provides atmospheric pressure
Noise Sensor noise measures noise exposures in the environment

# Discovery

There's no auto discovery. See Thing configuration how to setup a Sensor.

# Thing Configuration

Choose either a local IP address of your personal owned sensor or a sensor id of an external one.

Parameter Description
ipAddress Local IP address of your personal owned sensor
sensorid Sensor ID obtained from (opens new window)

# Local Sensor

Please check in your browser if you can access your sensor with your local IP address. Logo

# External Sensor

Perform the following steps to get the appropriate Sensor ID

  • Go to to map (opens new window)
  • Choose your desired value in bottom list - now only the Sensors are displayed which are supporting this
  • Click on your / any Sensor and the ID is displayed in the top right corner. Note: Sensor ID is just the number without beginning hash #
  • Enter this Sensor ID into the thing configuration Logo

# Channels
