hi ,

since this Wednesday 17h, the module does not work anymore, I have the following error message:

File "/opt/InputDataInflux/", line 46, in
     timestamp = device ['dashboard_data'] ['time_utc']
KeyError: 'dashboard_data'

do you have an idea.

thank you

That is hard to tell without insight into your dataset. The error says “dashboard_data” is not found, and to debug that I suggest you start by printing the “device” data structure right before the line that fails so you can see what it looks like. It might contain an error from the Netatmo API that leads you in the right direction.

OK thank you,

I found,
A module was disconnected.
and no info was on the netatmo website.
I reconnect the module and now it works .
