    BSEC_INPUT_HEATSOURCE - How to define?

    Re: BSEC_INPUT_HEATSOURCE - How to define?

    Since you are using the BSEC Arduino library, there is a funtion to do just that: setTemperatureOffset(float tempOffset). This means that you could add iaqSensor.setTemperatureOffset(4.6); in your setup() function to subtract a fixed 4.6°C from all temperature compensated outputs.

    Okey, but then the humidity and IAQ, which I understand is being adjusted by temperature won't be affected, or?

    That was why I from the beginning thought it would be better to adjust the input_heatsource value than just adjusting the output temperature value.

    If you dig a little into the source code, you will see that whatever value fed into setTemperatureOffset() will be used to set BSEC_INPUT_HEATSOURCE 😉 Therefore yes, this is the correct way to input your external temperature influence so that all BSEC outputs will be compensated for it.

    Great! Thanks a lot for your patience!
