DarkSky "monitored_conditions" not working?


I tried adding the following Dark Sky conditions to configuration.yaml but get an error:

  - platform: darksky
    api_key: [theapikey]
      - summary
      - temperature
      - apparent_temperature
      - uv_index
      - precip_probability
      - precip_accumulation
      - humidity
      - ozone
      - pressure
      - wind_bearing
      - wind_speed
      - visibility
    mode: daily

Check Config shows:

Configuration invalid

Invalid config for [weather.darksky]: [monitored_conditions] is an invalid option for [weather.darksky].
Check: weather.darksky->monitored_conditions. (See ?, line ?). 
Please check the docs at https://home-assistant.io/integrations/darksky/

If I remove monitored_conditions from configuration.yaml everything works well.


As the error says, monitored_conditions isn’t a valid option for the darksky weather integration. It’s valid for the darksky sensor though.


How could I read the temperature value returned by Dark Sky and use it in an automation? Let’s say “If temperature is above 30ºC do something”?

Numeric state trigger.
