The super-smart BME688 air quality sensor can measure temperature, pressure and humidity precisely. It also has an upgraded, AI-enhanced gas scanner!
Like its predecessor the BME680, this high quality sensor can be used to monitor every aspect of your environment, taking high precision measurements of temperature, pressure and humidity.
Additionally, the BME688 has an updated gas scanner function with extended measurements, which will react to changes in volatile organic compounds (VOCs), volatile sulfur compounds (VSCs) and the presence of carbon monoxide and hydrogen to give a general measure of indoor or outdoor air quality. With Bosch’s software, you can analyse the gas readings further and train the algorithms to make inferences about specific air quality indicators, including the likelihood of bacteria growth and the presence of other organic contaminants.
Want to get an idea of whether there’s adequate ventilation in your bedroom, your workshop, or workplace? Set up a BME688 on a Pi Zero W and have it log sensor readings to a file or post them into your home automation software or a web service like adafruit.io or freeboard.io.
This breakout is compatible with our fancy Breakout Garden system, where using breakouts is as easy just popping it into one of the slots and starting to grow your project, create, and code. It’s also Qw/ST compatible so it can be plugged into a whole range of different microcontrollers and HATs with Qwiic or STEMMA QT connectors.
