Uber


The uber sensor will give you time and price estimates for all available Uber products at the given location. The ATTRIBUTES are used to provide extra information about products, such as estimated trip duration, distance and vehicle capacity. By default, 2 sensors will be created for each product at the given start location, one for pickup time and one for current price. The sensor is powered by the official Uber API.

Setup

You must create an application in the Uber developer Dashboard to obtain a server_token.

Configuration

To enable this sensor, add the following lines to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
sensor:
  - platform: uber
    server_token: YOUR_UBER_SERVER_TOKEN

Configuration Variables

server_token

(string)(Required)The Server API token.

start_latitude

(float)(Optional)The starting latitude for a trip.

Default value: to the latitude in your configuration.yaml file.

start_longitude

(float)(Optional)The starting longitude for a trip.

Default value: to the longitude in your configuration.yaml file.

end_latitude

(float)(Optional)The ending latitude for a trip. While end_latitude is optional, it is strongly recommended to provide an end_latitude/end_longitude when possible as you will get more accurate price and time estimates.

end_longitude

(float)(Optional)The ending longitude for a trip. While end_longitude is optional, it is strongly recommended to provide an end_latitude/end_longitude when possible as you will get more accurate price and time estimates.

product_ids

(list)(Optional)A list of Uber product UUIDs. If provided, sensors will only be created for the given product IDs. Please note that product IDs are region and some times even more specific geographies based. The easiest way to find a UUID is to click on a sensor in the Home Assistant frontend and look for “Product ID” in the attributes.
