Elixir CI

Driver for CCS811 Ultra-Low Power Digital Gas Sensor for Monitoring Indoor Air Quality



If available in Hex, the package can be installed by adding ccs811 to your list of dependencies in mix.exs:

def deps do
    {:ccs811, "~> <LATEST_VERSION>"}



iex(1)> Ccs811.initialize
iex(2)> Ccs811.read_alg_result_data
  eco2: 1529,
  error_id: %{
    heater_fault: false,
    heater_supply: false,
    max_resistance: false,
    measmode_invalid: false,
    red_reg_invalid: false,
    write_reg_invalid: false
  status: %{app_valid: true, data_ready: true, error: false, fw_mode: true},
  tvoc: 191
iex(23)> Ccs811.read_status
%{app_valid: true, data_ready: true, error: false, fw_mode: true}

With Telemetry

Add to your application initialization


Which will set the driver to periodically execute a telemetry event named [:ccs811, :read] with a new data map containing values for eCO2 :eco2 and TVOC tvoc


both Ccs811.start_polling() and Ccs811.initialize() supports additional configuration parameters that can be passed as a keyword list

see Ccs811.start_polling/1 and Ccs811.initialize/1 for further details

Missing features:

  • Configuring humidity and temperature
  • Interrupt based data reading instead of polling
  • Configuration for Bus-name (currently it uses the first available I2C bus)
