Adding iotawatt problem

It’s amazing what a good night’s sleep does. It was an authentication issue on the rest call when creating the sensor! I know the rest call was working as it worked in the browser, when I re-tested in the browser this morning and it prompted me for a user/pass I had a lightbulb moment :slight_smile:

Thank you for your help.

Eion, how did you configure rest for user/pass ? i suspect this is my current issue. I did set a admin password in the IOTAWATT device.

My issue was with the REST call to Influx not into IOTAWatt. Here’s my sensor code:

  - platform: rest
    name: iotawatt
    resource: ''
    password: <Password>
    authentication: basic
    value_template: 'OK'
      - results
