Xiaomi mi flora sensor/ropot app


I don’t know about correctness of the data. My sensors are still underway from china.

Welcome @michielvzz.

What do you mean by “not show the correct sensor data”?


The data (light, moisture, etc.) is not updating. Even after restarting the mi flora app.


So the data is correct, but outdated. Thats an known Homey core issue.


Before posting about a bug, please read de Q&A first and check the last 5 comments at least. :sunglasses:


with restarting the app every 3 hours via flow readings are fine now… thanks for the advice

And now the next 2 questions:

  1. is there a limit of how many of these sensors are allowed with one homey? We have a lot of plants to monitor :wink:
  2. why is homey insight only showing temperature and light but no humidity?


  1. There is no limit, the devices will sync asynchrone.

  2. Thats afaik because Athom doesn’t expose custom characteristics


Thanks for your quick answer
Then I need to setup my own graphana/prometheus on my Raspberry. I have seen there is a prometheus app for exporting data

and again :wink: for what is this identify option in the extended settigs for?

And I have a strange behaviour: I have set an alarm if the moisture of one of my plants is below the defined threshold. I have watered the plant and the measurement is now above the max threshold for moisture. But the alarm was triggered … why?

Best regards


The identify option will connect to the device and try to blink the led on the device. It is an expirimental feature and not waterproof. The option is unchecked after the call to the device (for blink) again.

The measurement trigger could be a bug, please submit an issue here: https://github.com/koktaildotcom/homey-mi-flora with the steps to reproduce and the expected and current outcome.
