Flume


The flume sensor will show you the current flume status for the given Device ID.

Flume monitors the real-time status of your home water meter. Allowing the end-user to detect small leaks, gain real-time information on household water consumption, set water goals and budgets, and receive push notifications when suspicious water activities occur.

Configuration

Adding Flume to your Home Assistant instance can be done via the user interface, by taking the following steps:

  • Browse to your Home Assistant instance.
  • In the sidebar click on Configuration.
  • From the configuration menu select: Integrations.

Flume can be auto-discovered by Home Assistant. If an instance was found, it will be shown in the top of the list of integrations as “Discovered”. If that is the case click on the Configure button to start setting up the discovered instance.

If there wasn’t any discovered automatically, don’t worry! You can set up a manual integration entry:

  • In the bottom right, click on the Add Integration button.
  • From the list, search and select “Flume”.
  • Follow the instruction on screen to complete the set up.

After completing, the Flume integration will be immediately available for use.

You can find your Client ID and Client Secret under “API Access” on the settings page.

To add Flume to your installation, go to Configuration >> Integrations in the UI, click the button with + sign and from the list of integrations select Flume.
