MLX90614 infrared thermometer~

This feature is not included in precompiled binaries

To use it you must compile your build. Add the following to user_config_override.h:

#ifndef USE_MLX90614
#define USE_MLX90614            // [I2cDriver32] Enable MLX90614 ir temp sensor (I2C address 0x5a) (+0.6k code)
#endif

The MLX90614 is an infrared thermometer for non-contact temperature measurements.

Configuration~

Wiring~

MLX90614 ESP8266
GND GND
VCC 3.3V
SDA GPIOx
SCL GPIOy

Tasmota Settings~

In the Configuration -> Configure Module page assign:

  1. GPIOx to I2C SDA (6)
  2. GPIOy to I2C SCL (5)

After a reboot the driver will detect MLX90614 automatically and display Temperature measurements.
