Automnation using Netatmo Rain Gauge

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007fc3ebf6b1f0>

Can anybody help me to set up an automation using the Netatmo rain gauge?

Ich would like to trigger a switch, as soon as the Netatmo rain gauge measures rain falling. What is the correct unit and what is the correct type of trigger for the Netatmo rain gauge?

I tried numeric value above 0,1mm without success.

cheers

I haven’t tried this with a actual response from the Netatmo API since it doesn’t rain right now and I’ll have to wait for that but I think s.th. like this should work:

alias: Notify when rain is detected
description: ''
trigger:
  - platform: state
    entity_id: sensor.netatmo_home_rain
    from: '0.0'
condition: []
action:
  - service: persistent_notification.create
    data:
      message: It started to rain
mode: single
