This is brilliant thank you.
If you choose to share this with a wider audience.. some comments.

I installed the influxdb python package with pip install influxdb

You have a hard coded value for retention_policy on line 204 which I had to remove to work in my setup.

I also need to figure out how to get these values into fahrenheit.

Do you have any grafana graphs you would like to share?

Hi, this is great! I have successfully implemented this with my PI.

The one thing that I noticed is that you are not importing any data from a PMS5003 sensor, is this something that you'd be willing and able to add for an upcoming release

Please let me know when you have a chance.

Thank you again for this!

@Esteidinger I don't have any plans to share it with a wider audience, nor will I share my grafana dashboards. I'm not doing anything fancy here for now.

@exchefinma Yeah, I'm able to do this since all the code is in from the examples, but since I'm not owning a PMS5003 and I'm already measuring particles with ESP8266+SDS011 I'm not motivated to support it my scripts, which I'm just writing for my own.

Thank you @jk. I've got it running and I really appreciate having it.

I find this code very interesting. In addition to Enviro+, I also own a PMS5003 and having an integration would be fine.
Thank you

@FValent This isn't »a wish come true«. I share my code, nothing more. If you need something else implemented, you've to implement it on your own.

Great starting point !

Thanks for sharing this @jk, I've setup my influxdb and grafana but been always short in time to put together the code you've shared here. Very helpful thank you :-)
