HTTP Push Sensor displays float values as whole numbers



Hi - I'm using the HTTP push sensor to display the voltage of a solar battery.

The sensor receives a float value with 3 digits of precision (i.e., 12.321 volts).

That float value is correctly displayed on the graphs as 12.321, but everywhere else the display is shown as a whole number, i.e., 12 volts (or 11 or 13 volts for other values).

Is there any way to have these values displayed with their decimal components, not rounded off to the nearest whole number?

I realize the HTTP Push Sensor is a beta sensor, but it is easier to implement on an IOT device than SNMP...

Please see that attached screenshots...

Hi there,

did you already changed the amount of decimal places in the settings of the corresponding channel. If no, please change this and check if the correct value is displayed.

Well, that simple suggestion fixed it. I had looked everywhere for a settings adjustment that would fix that...or so I thought... ;) When you suggested "channel settings" I had something to search for, and it popped right up..

Thanks so much for the pointer AND for the quick response...
