Sensor Template cannot read state of an scrape sensor

Hello everyone:
I use Scrape to get the Temp from an ESP8266 Webserver

 - platform: scrape
    name: dht22ez_h
    select: ".sensorh"
    unit_of_measurement: '%'

It works, The State returns the Humidity.

i would like to use a template:

- platform: template
        friendly_name: 'Luftfeuchtigkeit Esszimmer'
        value_template: '{{ state.sensor.dht22ez_h }}'
        device_class: humidity
        unit_of_measurement: '%'

The state is always unavailable.
what am I doing wrong ?

You are missing the .state off the end of your template

value_template: '{{ state.sensor.dht22ez_h.state }}'

Aren’t you just making a copy of a sensor using the template ?

Thanks for your replay.
But it doesnt work.

        friendly_name: 'Luftfeuchtigkeit Schlafzimmer'
        value_template: '{{ state.sensor.dht22sz_h.state }}'
        device_class: humidity
        unit_of_measurement: '%'

State is still aunavailable


First one should be states

value_template: '{{ states.sensor.dht22sz_h.state }}'

many thanks ! It works now.

And if you don’t want to get errors in your log when the sensor is not ready (during start up) use this format:

value_template: "{{ states('sensor.dht22sz_h') }}"
