I know openHAB supports Influxdb as a persistence engine, but I already have an influxdb database that is getting filled from an external temperature sensor. Is it possible to use this existing db to read only the current temperature (the most current value in the db) into an openhab2 variable/thing/item? E.g. every minute?
I second the question, for me its for a interface between openhab and the RPICT current sensor (http://lechacal.com/wiki/index.php/Raspberrypi_Current_and_Temperature_Sensor_Adaptor).
I want to achieve the same result and i think it should be possible to query influxdb with http request and parse this to an item in openhab. i will try it this way, or are there any other ways by now?
