CircuitPython module for use with the SI7021 Temperature and Humidity Sensor.
This driver depends on:
Please ensure all dependencies are available on the CircuitPython filesystem. This is easily achieved by downloading the Adafruit library and driver bundle.
Installing from PyPI¶
On supported GNU/Linux systems like the Raspberry Pi, you can install the driver locally from PyPI. To install for current user:
pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-si7021
To install system-wide (this may be required in some cases):
sudo pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-si7021
To install in a virtual environment in your current project:
mkdir project-name && cd project-name python3 -m venv .venv source .venv/bin/activate pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-si7021
Of course, you must import the library to use it:
This driver takes an instantiated and active I2C object (from the
bitbangio library) as an argument to its constructor. The way to create
an I2C object depends on the board you are using. For boards with labeled SCL
and SDA pins, you can:
from busio import I2C from board import SCL, SDA i2c = I2C(SCL, SDA)
Once you have created the I2C interface object, you can use it to instantiate the sensor object:
sensor = adafruit_si7021.SI7021(i2c)
And then you can start measuring the temperature and humidity:
API documentation for this library can be found on Read the Docs.
