balena sense questions


I have a rpi zero w up and running with balena Sense and a bme680 breakout board.

So now I am curious to how all this ties together and thought I would start learning how the Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is being collected and where the code/configs live so I can experiment.

Where is a good place to start learning how the data in my screen shot is being output and how to make changes or work with the code to make changes. I hope that makes sense.

In case you didn’t see it there is a fairly extensive blog post about balenaSense here on our blog:

further if you didn’t already have, you can checkout the source for the project:
the sensor subdir has the code that reads the sensor data and then the telegraf+influxdb+grafana stack is used to scrape, store and present that data

Thank you!

I’ve been coming up to speed with how all this works and really appreciate you pointing me toward info.
