Keeps track on number entities in your environment, their state, and allows you to control them. This integration allows other integrations to get a value input from user within a range.

Building block integration

This number is a building block integration that cannot be added to your Home Assistant directly but is used and provided by other integrations.

A building block integration differs from the typical integration that connects to a device or service. Instead, other integrations that do integrate a device or service into Home Assistant use this number building block to provide entities, services, and other functionality that you can use in your automations or dashboards.

If one of your integrations features this building block, this page documents the functionality the number building block offers.

If you are looking for a way to create a number entity, please take a look at the Number helper.

Device class

A device class is a measurement categorization in Home Assistant. It influences how the entity is represented in the dashboard. This can be modified in the customize section. For example, different states may be represented by different icons, colors, or text.

The following device classes are supported for numbers:

  • None: Generic number. This is the default and doesn’t need to be set.
  • apparent_power: Apparent power in VA.
  • aqi: Air Quality Index (unitless).
  • atmospheric_pressure: Atmospheric pressure in cbar, bar, hPa, inHg, kPa, mbar, Pa, psi
  • battery: Percentage of battery that is left
  • carbon_dioxide: Carbon Dioxide in CO2 (Smoke)
  • carbon_monoxide: Carbon Monoxide in CO (Gas CNG/LPG)
  • current: Current in A, mA
  • data_rate: Data rate in bit/s, kbit/s, Mbit/s, Gbit/s, B/s, kB/s, MB/s, GB/s, KiB/s, MiB/s, or GiB/s
  • data_size: Data size in bit, kbit, Mbit, Gbit, B, kB, MB, GB, TB, PB, EB, ZB, YB, KiB, MiB, GiB, TiB, PiB, EiB, ZiB, or YiB
  • distance: Generic distance in km, m, cm, mm, mi, yd, or in
  • energy: Energy in Wh, kWh, MWh, MJ, or GJ
  • energy_storage: Stored energy in Wh, kWh, MWh, MJ, or GJ

  • monetary: The monetary value
  • nitrogen_dioxide: Concentration of Nitrogen Dioxide in µg/m³
  • nitrogen_monoxide: Concentration of Nitrogen Monoxide in µg/m³
  • nitrous_oxide: Concentration of Nitrous Oxide in µg/m³
