Rest custom sensor



Hi all,

Is there any way to configure the channel type data as string? It shows only integers and floats. Documentation says it uses lookups too, but I don´t see where can I configura a custom lookup to match string values.

Hi there,

this feature will be implemented in the near future for the REST Custom v2 sensor. In the meantime you may also use a HTTP Advanced sensor to check for certain strings.

Kind regards
