Number


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.

Number entities cannot be implemented manually, but can be provided by other integrations. If you are looking for a way to create a number entity, please take a look at the Number helper.

Device Class

The type of data a number represents impacts how it is displayed in the frontend. This is controlled by the number’s device class designation. Built-in numbers and many created from an integration will have this designation predefined. Those can be modified in the customize section. When manually creating a new number the device class may be optionally assigned. A full list of available number device classes is below:

  • 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
