Monitor a device


Hi everyone,
I am a new Homey user and coming from Home Assistant. In Home Assistant I used to monitor my server by sending info by MQTT to Home Assistant with mem usage, cpu load, uptime etc.

I have figured out how to get the values into a variable with Better Logic and a MQTT Client in Homey but I am still to figure out how to display the information as a device.

Is it possible to display that information like this?


Not sure if this is what you mean, but:

With Homey Insights you can view variables in graphs: https://insights.homey.app

The example shows the Hue Outdoor Sensor 7 day temperature values and the Homey System memory use.

Furthermore, at http://developer.athom.com/tools/system you can find the parameters you mention and more.


I think he means system etc of his server, not of Homey.

These can be shown in a device-info but I think you’d have to create your own app or Virtual Device (based on https://apps.athom.com/app/com.arjankranenburg.virtual) for that.


Nice one but my “Better logic” variables does not show in there.


Yes I am looking for showing the current value in a device-info. I am trying to get it working with Virtual Device but am unable to set the values from “Better logic”
