thingspeak components makes Home Assistant communicate with the ThingSpeak API.
For now, it records exactly one entity at once, which is great for testing purposes. For long-time storage you should rely
on the InfluxDB component.
To setup the ThinkSpeak component in your installation, add the following to your
# Example configuration.yaml entry thingspeak: api_key: MY_API_KEY id: 1337 whitelist: sensor.yr_temperature
- api_key (Required): Yout ThingSpeak API key.
- id (Required): The ID of your desired ThingSpeak channel.
- whitelist (Required): The name of the entity whose states should be sent to the channel.
