Suggestion Signal Strength Display

Not sure how easy it would be to add more data to the monitorjson that could be displayed in the esphome screen of the scr_485

From the http:/iammeter_ip/api/monitor, extract and display data like

ssid:

sig:

version:


signal strength would be quite useful given it is one of the weakest links in the data collection process..


Cheers

Do you mean you want to add the wifi-strength value of the SCR-485 to the webpage?

Or the Wi-Fi strength value of the corresponding energy meter(grid meter or the battery meter )?

From the WEM3080T. as you know you can check it from From the http:/iammeter_ip/api/monitor

I have drop outs and i think it is due to the low signal levels but it could be Internet Drop-Outs

The signal value here is quite low at 20. Typically, we recommend a signal value above 60 for stable connections. With a value of only 20, the connection may be unstable.


It is easy to visit the API of api/mointor from scr-485 and display the sig value on the webpage.

But it would be the HTTP request method that provided by ESPhome, and this method has a bug may cause the periodic reboot, which was discussed here
So we are trying to find another method to achieve this.
