So close to buying...



We have a bunch of temperature/environmental probes that we want to include in PRTG and we really want both environmental and network/computer monitoring in one application/interface.

the result of a http request returns this result: Temperature: 91.7°F/33.2°C, Humidity: 48.2%, Updated: 1 min ago

The script sensor looks too difficult as there are many sensors - is there anything on the horizon that might allow for simple html filtering. (here I just want [33.2] [48.2] [1])

PS these are for the http://wirelesstag.net/ - AMAZING little tags with brilliant range and cost effective enough to throw them everywhere.

It can be done, but requires (some) programming.

wirelesstag.net provides a HTTP API that returns JSON.

The authentication requires an OATH2 token that can be received following these steps

After retreiving the JSON, you can use the values in a Custom Sensor.
