AM43 Sensor

The am43 sensor platform allows you to read the light and battery sensors on an AM43 BLE cover motor. The platform connects to the device over the ESP32’s BLE peripheral.

Note

This component does NOT support Tuya-based versions of this device, as the protocol is completely different. If your device is controlled with the SmartLife app, then it will not work.
