Zigbee/Zwave Temp Monitoring

I am wanting to collect temperature data in PRTG from some sensors that are Zigbee and/or Zwave. Does anyone know of a way to collect this in PRTG? I realize I'd need some sort of hub possibly connected to the computer, but not sure exactly what I'd need if this is even possible. Thanks.

After a quick readup, it might be not that easy with zigbee/zwave alone. This blog entry describes how to build your own zigbee gateway. Using zigbee2mqtt, you can probably(?) store the values on the mqtt broker or the corresponding home assistant server and query that one with PRTG. What are you using? OpenHab, Home Assistant, HomeKit, Homebridge? :) Note that we're currently working on MQTT Sensors to query your MQTT server for its metrics, but it's still under heavy development as of now.

Hmm. Thanks for the reply. What I'm really wanting to accomplish is to read the supply and return temperatures of an HVAC system and alert when the delta of those two values gets below a certain value. Very easy to do in PRTG once I'm getting the values, however, finding the devices to do that seems to be an issue and a simple SNMP temperature probe doesn't seem to exist unless connected to a UPS or PDU which I don't have either in this area.

What's the vendor/model of the HVAC system?

It's a Goodman CHPF4860D6. No way to monitor it directly to my knowledge.

Nope, you're right. You'll likely need to go the zigbee2mqtt route :(

Would this MQTT be able to query a Samsung SmartThings hub?

I currently log my data from SmartThings in Splunk. I came across this code on GitHub that converts events to JSON and sends it to a Splunk HTTP Event Collector. I bet it could be modified to work with PRTG or possibly be able to just point it at a PRTG http_content_sensor. In the code it even gives the option to send the data over LAN or from Samsung's AWS cluster.
