b-parasite firmware build


PCB front and back photo

b-parasite is an open source soil moisture and ambient temperature/humidity/light sensor.



This repository also hosts a few different firmware samples for b-parasite.

Sample Description Extra Documentation
samples/ble This is the most battle-tested and useful firmware. It periodically reads all sensors and broadcast them via Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). It works with Home Assistant + BTHome out of the box. Docs
samples/zigbee An experimental/educational/exploratory basic Zigbee sample built on nRF Connect + ZBOSS. It integrates with Home Assistant via ZHA or Zigbee2MQTT. Docs
samples/blinky The classic "Hello, world" -
samples/soil_read_loop Reads the soil moisture sensor on a loop. Useful for experimenting and calibrating the sensor. -
samples/input Handles button presses. Useful for power profiling GPIO interrupts and testing debouncing for push switches on boards that have them. -


Information about how to order, assemble, build the samples, protect the sensor and flash the firmware is on the Wiki.

Render of the original 3D printable case

We have three different 3D-printable cases:

  1. Original snap-on case - case/Top.stl, case/Bottom.stl
  2. High airflow - case/b_parasite_case_high_airflow.stl
  3. Mushroom-style - available on Printables
