I love it! Thanks so much!
Is possible to have multiple sensor, one sensor for every voice? thanks

Yes, it would look like this:

- platform: instagram
   username: your-instagram-username-1
   password: your-instagram-password-1

- platform: instagram
   username: your-instagram-username-2
   password: your-instagram-password-2

- platform: instagram
   username: your-instagram-username-3
   password: your-instagram-password-3

Thanks for putting this together!

I’m getting an error in the logs:

Logger: homeassistant.components.hassio
Source: components/hassio/
Integration: Home Assistant Supervisor (documentation, issues)
First occurred: 4:13:25 PM (1 occurrences)
Last logged: 4:13:25 PM

The system cannot restart because the configuration is not valid: Platform error sensor.instagram - Integration 'instagram' not found.

I’ve tried reinstalling and restarting Home Assistant before adding the config. When I add the config with my IG username, it won’t let me restart because it says the config is invalid and the Platform Instagram is not valid.

Do you have any suggestions? :grinning:

The integration was having a problem with the instagram API, I refactored the whole integration and it doesn’t happen anymore. Locally update your component with HAC’s to the new version, and take a look at the project readme why the settings have changed…
