Torque (OBD2)


The torque platform will allow you to monitor Torque data relayed from a bluetooth OBD2 stick via the Torque mobile application.

Configuration

To use Torque sensors with your installation, you must configure both the Torque mobile application and Home Assistant.

Torque application

In Settings -> Data Logging & Upload:

Under the Logging Preferences header:

  • Touch Select what to log, activate the menu in the upper right, and select Add PID to log.
  • Select items of interest.

Under the Realtime Web Upload header:

  • Check Upload to webserver.
  • Enter http://HOST:PORT/api/torque?api_password=YOUR_PASSWORD as the Webserver URL, where HOST and PORT are your externally-accessible Home Assistant HTTP host and port and YOUR_PASSWORD is your password.
  • Enter an email address in User Email Address.
