Help with Rest Configuration

Hi Guys,

I’m sure someone here can help me, I have just setup a mini weather station using the following ESP board

The software running in the board allows rest calls as can be seen here

So I can make a rest call such as which is display the temp from the boad in my browser in json format as below

e": 27.47, "id":
"1", "name":
"connected": true}

I’m now wondering how to get this information into hassio? I had assumed that I would use the aRest Intergration, but so far I’ve been unable to make this work.

I’m sure its really simple, but I’m struggling, I’d really appreciate if someone could point me in the right direction? Do I need a value template??

Here’s an example sensor for your indoor temperature.

- platform: rest
  name: Indoor Temperature
  value_template: '{{ value_json.IndoorTemperature }}'
  unit_of_measurement: °C

You should be able to adapt it to others.

Note this assumes you do not need authentication (username & password) to access the weather station.

How has the SwitchDoc Weather Station worked for you?
I’m thinking of getting one, and would like some input.
