Easy way to add "Templates" or "utility sensors" in UI like blueprints

Home-assistant has a loot of good sensor platforms that consumes the state from other sensors, it would be grate to get a easy wizard to setup those sensors or create “virtual sensors” as a blueprint based on templates in the UI.

Some samples for the existing utility sensors:

trend sensor to find out if temp is falling or rising

Statistics to get the mean and a loot of attributs

min_max to also get several nice statistics

Derivative that estimates the derivative of the values provided by a source sensor

There is also several other powerfull sensors like Riemann sum integral and Bayesian sensor to estimate the probability.

Moving integrations to the UI is a work in progress. A few are added each new release.
