How to add a temperature display?

I have device on the network that returns the temperature via a url call such as:
http://192.168.1.11/temp. The return looks like: 78.54
How might I display that on my overview page like the weather display? I have full control over the display, if that’s not in a format that is acceptable.
Thanks,
Jim
PS I’m new at this so be kind.

You can probably use a RESTful Sensor. Try this:

sensor:
  - platform: rest
    resource: http://192.168.1.11/temp
    name: Temp

This should create an entity named Temp, with an entity_id of sensor.temp, that you can display in the frontend.

Thanks, I’ll see if I can make that work.

It’s working.
Thanks,
