Hi Luis,
I had a similar requirement a while back and took a different approach
to get my data into Postgres by importing the output from the default
text writer.  This was largely to keep things as simple as possible on
the sensor side.

See https://github.com/j-o-h-n-g/Mortimer/blob/master/broimport.py

The code is quite dirty in places, but might give you some ideas for
possible bro<->postgres type mappings.
