Ideal for monitoring conditions in your house, garage, and more, the PimoroniEnviro pHAT packs 4 different sensors, letting you measure temperature, pressure, light level, color, 3-axis motion, compass heading, and analog inputs. That’s up to 10 different variables!
Snap it on top of a Raspberry Pi Zero (or really, any Raspberry Pi with a 2×20 connector) for a comprehensive environment-sensing pHAT powered directly from the Pi. Set up a web server with Flask and remotely monitor everything from anywhere.
As with other pHATs, it works with all of the 40-pin Raspberry Pi variants – 3/2/B+/A+/Zero – but using it with the Pi Zero makes for a super-tiny package.
Combining the Enviro pHAT with other Pimoroni HATs and pHATs gives almost endless possibilities: display sensor values on Unicorn pHAT, use the Display-O-Tron HAT to display sensor data, display a graph of values with the Scroll pHAT, and much, much more.
Check out Pimoroni’s comprehensive Python library to make using the Enviro pHAT really simple.
BMP280 temperature/pressure sensor
TCS3472 light and RBG color sensor
Two LEDs for illumination
LSM303D accelerometer/magnetometer sensor
ADS1015 4-channel 3.3v, analog to digital sensor (ADC)
Kit Includes: Assembled Enviro pHAT PCB, 2×20 0.1″ female GPIO header, & male header for ADC pins. Some light soldering is required to attach the header on, or you can of course solder the pHAT right onto the Pi Zero.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
