Beta Update for PurpleAir Sensors (no device required)

I have posted an update to the beta of the PurpleAir Sensor plugin. The new version 0.1.4 now support using data from any of PurpleAirs Network of Sensors.

To use the remote sensors you will need to make sure you correctly have your Sunrise/Sunset Longitude and Latitude set. This is used to find the sensors that are closest to you based on a milage range set in the Plugin Configuration.

Install the plugin from https://github.com/mpoulson/Indigo-Purp ... /0.1.5.zip

This plugin supports sensors from http://www.purpleair.com .

Supports measuring the following
-PM1.0
-PM2.5
-PM10.0
-Temperature
-Humidity
-Pressure
-DewPoint

Supports
- PA-II - Outdoor sensor
- PA-I - Indoor sensor
-Any Active sensor from http://www.purpleair.com

Allows you to trigger a fan when the indoor air quality passes into unsafe limits or many other actions!

Please let me know if you have any problems.

Hi. This problem is still around (reported 1/19). Any ideas? Indigo 7.3.1. OS X 10.14.6. Thanks.

Hi there. The Purple Air plugin (0.1.7) is generating the following errors with Indigo 7.2. Any ideas? Thanks

I just installed this plugin, and ran into the same issue. With the bad air quality in California from the fires, this would be valuable information. Thanks!

Ditto here. We've had lots of bad smoke days and it would be great to tap into this data.

It seems like we've all come looking for the same thing in this fire season, and are all getting the same result :)

I see that this error was reported on the git hub in 2018, with no response, so my guess is that this is an abandoned project.
