WiFi Strength in System Monitor

I’d find it really useful if we could get a value of the wifi signal strength via the systemmonitor component.


You can get this with a commandline sensor. See for example https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/207992/how-to-find-out-the-wifi-sensitivity-rssi

But really, use wired!

I know how to get it. That doesn’t change the fact that it would be useful as part of systemmonitor.

Did you have any luck with this?
I would like to do the same thing.
Rasb Pi is wired on the same network, but I would like to be able to monitor the wireless signal from the router (strength / on/ off ) as obviously all accessories are wireless.

Rather than trouble shoot individual connection isssues, my first check would then be to see that the wifi from the router is up and working with no outages.

That is surely something you need to get from your router.

Either the router or monitoring signal via the rasp I would have thought yes?
Sometimes I lose wireless connection from the router, yet still have wired connection.
I just want to know if there is an input/output I can monitor from HA
