Automation Editor

From the UI choose Configuration which is located in the sidebar, then click on Automation to go to the automation editor. Press the + sign in the lower right corner to get started. This example is based on the manual steps described in the Getting started section for a random sensor.

Choose a meaningful name for your automation rules.

If the value of the sensor is greater than 10, then the automation rule should apply.

Firing a persistent notification is the result.

As “Service Data” we want a simple text that is shown as part of the notification.

message: Sensor value greater than 10

Don’t forget to save your new automation rule. For your saved automation rule to come into effect, you will need to go to the Configuration page and click on Reload Automation.
