Time & Date


The time and date (time_date) sensor platform adds one or more sensors to your Home Assistant state machine. To have these sensors available in your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file (each option creates a separate sensor that contains appropriate data):

# Example configuration.yaml entry
sensor:
  - platform: time_date
    display_options:
      - 'time'
      - 'date'
      - 'date_time'
      - 'date_time_iso'
      - 'time_date'
      - 'time_utc'
      - 'beat'
  • display_options array (Required): The option to display. The types date_time, time_date, and date_time_iso shows the date and the time. The other types just the time or the date. beat shows the Swatch Internet Time.
