Hello sageeb,

Thank you very much for your contact.

Please provide me with some more information on this, for instance what precise URL you try to monitor. What the sensor does is basically calling the URL with every scanning interval and regard values in square brackets [ ], handling each of them in one sensor channel.

For the sake of completeness, please check the sensor's manual article for further information and also see the example in this article.

Best regards,
