Integrating iAmmeter with Home Assitant through MQTT

Good day


Please assist urgently.  We are busy with a large project and need to connect 10 of your iAmmeters to Home Assistant through MQTT.  I am fairly new to Home Assistant and especially MQTT and HACS.

Referring to your documents, https://www.iammeter.com/docs/summary-home-assistant

I am not coming right and have spent a lot of time trying to work out what to do.  I am in a time pinch to complete the project.  Please assist to generate examples that match my IP addresses so that I can understand what to do.

I access the meter’s Web Interface through IP http://172.0.1.3:8123/config/system .

The Home Assistant IP is http://172.0.1.3:8123/config/dashboard


Please guide me exactly through the steps to get the iAmmeter connected to HA through MQTT.  Your urgent response will be appreciated.


Regards

I have Mosquito Broker installed.  I am not sure where to insert the YAML code. mqtt_iammeter.yaml 

Step 1: https://www.home-assistant.io/integrations/mqtt/
Step 2: https://www.home-assistant.io/integrations/sensor.mqtt/
To use your MQTT sensor in your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file
For more basic usage of homeassistant, please refer to the official website documentation: https://www.home-assistant.io/docs/configuration/
