The Pysense shield allows you to sense the environment using 5 different sensors:

  • Accelerometer (LIS2HH12)
  • Light Sensor (LTR329ALS01)
  • Pressure Sensor (MPL3115A2)
  • Temperature / Humidity Sensor (SI7006A20)

Getting started

  1. Find the libraries for the Pysense in the Pycom libraries repository on Github.
  2. Download the files and extract them into the project folder in Pymakr
  3. Click the upload project to device button. This will store all necessary files on the device and allow you to import them in the example
  4. Check the REPL. If you have Pybytes activated, the example will send the sensor data to Pybytes automatically.
