The torque platform will allow you to monitor Torque data relayed from a Bluetooth OBD2 stick via the Torque mobile application.


To use Torque sensors with your installation, you must configure both the Torque mobile application and Home Assistant.

Torque application

In Settings -> Data Logging & Upload:

Under the Logging Preferences header:

  • Touch Select what to log, activate the menu in the upper right, and select Add PID to log.
  • Select items of interest.

Under the Realtime Web Upload header:

  • Check Upload to web-server.
  • Enter https://HOST/api/torque or https://@/HOST:PORT/api/torque as the Web-server URL, where HOST and PORT are your externally accessible Home Assistant HTTP host. To use a Bearer Token, this has to be SSL/TLS.
  • Enable Send https: Bearer Token (available since Torque Pro 1.12.46)
  • Paste a Long-Lived Access Token from any Home Assistant user in Set Bearer Token field.
  • Enter an email address in User Email Address (this can be any non empty string you like).
  • Optionally set the Web Logging Interval. The 2-second default may quickly fill up the Home Assistant history database.


Add the following to your configuration.yamlThe configuration.yaml file is the main configuration file for Home Assistant. It lists the integrations to be loaded and their specific configurations. In some cases, the configuration needs to be edited manually directly in the configuration.yaml file. Most integrations can be configured in the UI.[Learn more] file:
