Statistics Graph Card

The Statistics Graph card allows you to display a graph of statistics data for each of the entities listed.

Statistics are gathered every 5 minutes for sensors that support it. It will either keep the min, max and mean of a sensors value for a specific hour, or the sum for a metered entity.

If your sensor doesn’t work with statistics, check this.
