Smart Meter Texas
The Smart Meter Texas integration allows Texas residents to integrate their electric meters into Home Assistant. This integration will create a sensor for each meter that shows the current reading.
On its own this sensor is not particularly useful. However, combined with a
utility_meter sensor you can obtain usage over a month, for example.
Any Texas electricity consumer can register an account.
- Go to Smart Meter Texas
- Select Sign Up
- Choose residential as your account type
- You will need following details which can be found on your electric bill.
- The name of your retail electric provider
- Your meter number
- Your ESIID (Electric Service Identifier)
