Smarthome Dashboard with Grafana & InfluxDB

This is a complete overhaul of my Raspberry Dashboard done with Flask.

I switched from sqlite to InfluxDB which is much better prepared to deal with time series data. And I also switched to Grafana for creating the dashboard itself. Building nice looking graphs and interact with them is way more easy with Grafana (as I did before – by hand).

Project structure

Getting Started


  • Grafana
  • InfluxDB
  • Raspberry (minimum Zero W or anything below for just sending/receving data)
  • DHT-22 sensor
  • SDS011 sensor
  • optional: LED traffic light
  • optional: Display


  • Copy & clone the source code.
  • Set up a virtual environment: python3 -m venv venv
  • Pip install requirements: pip3 install -r requirements.txt
  • Install and bring up InfluxDB and Grafana on Raspberry

Executing program

Grafana server is listening on http://<ip address>:3000
