Examples

In this section, you will find some real-life examples of how to use this sensor.

Electricity price

The electricity price can be used to make automations. The sensor has a max_price and min_price attribute, with max and min price for the current day. Here is an example to get a notification when the price is above 90% of the maximum price for the day:

- alias: "Electricity price"
  trigger:
    platform: time_pattern
  # Matches every hour at 1 minutes past whole
    minutes: 1
  condition:
    condition: template
    value_template: '{{ float(states('sensor.electricity_price_hamretunet_10')) > 0.9 * float(state_attr('sensor.electricity_price_hamretunet_10', 'max_price')) }}'
  action:
   - service: notify.pushbullet
     data:
       title: "Electricity price"
       target: "device/daniel_telefon_cat"
       message: "The electricity price is now {{ states('sensor.electricity_price_hamretunet_10') }}"
