You must first be registered with Koubachi to access Koubachi API that will give you access to your plants codes (Key and Credentials) .

You can then click on Add a device / Other type of device / Connected Object.

Manual way

Apart from the automated way, there was a manual way to add the sensor, that is explain below:

Add a sensor "HTTP"

Identify " decimal " eedomus in order to draw graphs .

Enter the URL with the access codes  URL:

Enter the XPath for moisture. You can simply copy / paste !  XPath : substring -before ( / / recent- soilmoisture -reading value , "%" ) The path is complex to retrieve a value without a unit ° C or% .

One measurement every 360 minutes (every 6 hours) simply because the Koubachi transmits only every 24 hours.

Your box will thus examine Koubachi 6hr servers. Information will be available in eedomus .

If you have multiple Koubachi , use the MAC address or the id of the plant for filtering (or 000666778899 is the MAC Adesse)
