Internal hall sensor question



  • Hello!

    It's currently possible to get the internal ESP32 hall sensor status? My idea is to trigger OTA or wake from deepsleep when a magnet is near the device (if the hall sensor is sensible enough...).

    Also I find that temperature read is implemented but no idea how to interpret this value (returns values arround 136) = 36ºC?

    Best regards!



  • @river In the loboris variant of micropython.org port there is support for the hall sensor. I tried that, just to determine, that the hall sensor is pretty insensitive. Better use an external hall sensor connected to a GPIO.
    The internal temperature sensor works, but has a huge variation form device to device. See the discussion here: https://github.com/micropython/micropython/pull/3933
