I am looking for some advice on how to represent sensor data whose value is updated.
I have a list of sensors whose data is only updated once a day (e.g. weight, # of hours slept, etc). When using the standard sensor, this is the most common representation:
Nothing happens for 23h59min, and then, a sudden jump.
My objective is to be able to track the evolution across multiple days: for example, a 7d or 30d day graph with one data point per day.
The extramile would be being able to extract the daily data like this:
Ideas / Troubleshooting
I have history, logbook and recorder enabled. However, I am unsure about how to leverage this data.
I have been reading about statistics entity. This can be useful to do calculations (e.g. average time slept in last 30d). However, graphs still seems to be per minute/hour instead of per day.
- How do you manage this type of sensors? Specially when you want several stats like yesterday, last 7d, last 30d…
- How do you visualize the graphs in a daily or aggregated fashion in a way that makes sense?
