VEML6070 UV light sensor~

This feature is included only in tasmota-sensors.bin

Otherwise you must compile your build. Add the following to user_config_override.h:

#ifndef USE_VEML6070
#define USE_VEML6070            // Add I2C code for VEML6070 sensor (+0k5 code)
#endif

This little sensor is a great way to add UV light sensing to any microcontroller project. The VEML6070 from Vishay has a true UV A light sensor and an I2C-controlled ADC that will take readings and integrate them for you over ~60ms to 500ms." See VEML6070 UV Sensor for more information.

Configuration~

Wiring~

VEML6070 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)

Tasmota Main~

After a reboot the driver will detect VEML6070 automatically and display UV light intensity.
