Torque (OBD2)

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


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.
  • Optionally set the Web Logging Interval. The 2-second default may quickly fill up the Home Assistant history database.
