Thanks for the responses,
I’m not sure I really explained the whole picture of the setup, so before I put a nail in this path, though I would take one last run at it.
My site is Steve’s Power Plant MK2
Currently the temperature is being provided by the openweather integration in the Setup section of the website. Everything is working correctly and is really robust - a testament to the hard work done by @bankstownbloke and other contributors.
What I would like to do next though, is monitor the temperature as reported by the current cost meter which is currently recording consumption values. The CurrentCost meter is physically installed in a cupboard that houses other IT equipment and gets pretty warm.
After getting a 3d printer, I decided a “mini-project” would be to implement a PC Fan that extracts the air out of this cupboard when a defined temp is reached. I thought using the CurrentCost Temp value would be a great source for this, and I could use Homeseer automation to grab the value from the website via API, and activate the fan as required.
I don’t want to change the temperature that is displayed as the normal value on the site, as its working awesomely (v5 I assume), what I’m trying to do is add this to an extended value.
Is this possible? If not, I’ll explore option B!
Thanks again for all the help!
