Edimax


This edimax switch platform allows you to control the state of your Edimax switches.

To use your Edimax switch in your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
switch:
  - platform: edimax
    host: 192.168.1.32

Power consumption sensor

Starting with version 2 of the firmware, the Edimax switches can also report the current and accumulated daily power consumption in their state objects. Use a template sensor to extract their values:

  - platform: template
    sensors:
      edimax_current_power:
        friendly_name: Edimax Current power consumption
        unit_of_measurement: 'W'
        value_template: "{{ state_attr('switch.edimax_smart_plug',  'current_power_w') | replace('None', 0) }}"

      edimax_total_power:
        friendly_name: Edimax Accumulated daily power consumption
        unit_of_measurement: 'kWh'
        value_template: "{{ state_attr('switch.edimax_smart_plug',  'today_energy_kwh') | replace('None', 0) }}"

Note that if the smart plug is off, these states report the string None. By using a replace() in the template, these sensors report purely numerical values.
