Newbie here, looking for things to do if/when I’m isolated with the dreaded CV. Just discovered the existence of Home Assistant which looks a useful project.
I’ve been running a Current Cost setup for some years, as I received the unit from my electricity company as a freebie. I used mine as an excuse to program in Python, producing a rolling graph and cost. If a newbie is entitle to post a link, you’ll get the drift.
So, what would this custom component aim to achieve ? Graph display ? Stats ? I use RRDtool in my graph production. Medium term, I’m looking at a “time of use” electrical tariff, so that will need extra sums.
Obviously I’ve got a lot of reading to do. It all looks fascinating and I’m watching here with interest.
