Recently, I went from homeassistant docker to home assistant OS on a virtual machine. After I did that, I noticed that when I click on a particular sensor, I no longer see a graph that shows every update that the sensor posted, but rather a chart that is an average of 5 minutes, with avg/min/max values. I personally find that to be insufficient, and I do not want to constantly have to click on the “display more” link. Unfortunately, I did not take a photo of what the original charts looked like, although I could probably get the old configuration back up running, if that is required. In the meantime, I attached two screenshots - one showing the “average” history charts, and the other showing the “display more” history charts, and I want both to look like the “display more” charts. Either way, they both looked like the “display more” charts before the update. This also targets all my other sensors. I suspect it might be part of a new feature, but I would love to get rid of it. Thanks.! Here are the pictures (the second one is the preffered look): Imgur: The magic of the Internet
This was introduced a couple of versions ago with the intention of making graphs load quicker. In practice using the 5 minute average has made no discernible difference to load times on my system and has only resulted in a loss of resolution.
There are two ways you can resolve this:
- Remove the
state_class: measurementfrom your sensors or use customize to set it to
none. This also removes long term statistics from the sensors.
- Use the custom history explorer card. It has an option to replace all more-info pop-up graphs with a much more user friendly version. https://community.home-assistant.io/t/new-interactive-history-explorer-custom-card/369450
I use option 2.
