# Binary Sensor Map¶

The `binary_sensor_map`

sensor platform allows you to map multiple binary sensor
to an individual value. Depending on the state of each binary sensor, its associated configured parameters, and this sensor’s mapping type,
the `binary_sensor_map`

publishes a single numerical value.

Use this sensor to combine one or more binary sensors’ `ON`

or `OFF`

states into a numerical value. Some possible use cases include
touch devices and determining Bayesian probabilities for an event.

This platform supports three measurement types: `BAYESIAN`

, `GROUP`

, and `SUM`

.
You need to specify your desired mapping with the `type:`

configuration value.

When using the `BAYESIAN`

type, add your binary sensors as `observations`

to the binary sensor map.
If you use the `GROUP`

or `SUM`

type, add your binary sensors as `channels`

.
The maximum amount of observations/channels supported is 64.

`BAYESIAN`

This type replicates Home Assistant’s Bayesian sensor. Based on the observation states, this sensor returns the Bayesian probability of a particular event occurring. The configured`prior:`

probability is the likelihood that the Bayesian event is true, ignoring all external influences. Every observation has its own`prob_given_true`

and`prob_given_false`

parameters. The`prob_given_true:`

value is the probability that the observation’s binary sensor is`ON`

when the Bayesian event is`true`

. The`prob_given_false:`

value is the probability that the observation’s binary sensor is`ON`

when the Bayesian event is`false`

. Use an Analog Threshold Binary Sensor to convert this sensor’s probability to a binary`ON`

or`OFF`

by setting an appropriate threshold.

# Example configuration entry
sensor:
- platform: binary_sensor_map
id: bayesian_prob
name: 'Bayesian Event Probability'
type: bayesian
prior: 0.4
observations:
- binary_sensor: binary_sensor_0
prob_given_true: 0.9
prob_given_false: 0.2
- binary_sensor: binary_sensor_1
prob_given_true: 0.6
prob_given_false: 0.1
binary_sensor:
# If the Bayesian probability is greater than 0.6,
# then predict the event is occuring
- platform: analog_threshold
name: "Bayesian Event Predicted State"
sensor_id: bayesian_prob
threshold: 0.6
# ...
```

`GROUP`

Each channel has its own`value`

. The sensor publishes the average value of all active binary sensors or`NAN`

if no sensors are active.

```
# Example configuration entry
sensor:
- platform: binary_sensor_map
id: group_0
name: 'Group Map 0'
type: GROUP
channels:
- binary_sensor: touchkey0
value: 0
- binary_sensor: touchkey1
value: 10
- binary_sensor: touchkey2
value: 20
- binary_sensor: touchkey3
value: 30
# Example binary sensors using MPR121 component
mpr121:
id: mpr121_first
address: 0x5A
binary_sensor:
- platform: mpr121
channel: 0
id: touchkey0
# ...
```

`SUM`

Each channel has its own`value`

. The sensor publishes the sum of all the active binary sensors values or`0`

if no sensors are active.

```
