HA can help in saving money for gas usage I think. So I thought to create an automation to send me and/or my wife a notification to the iphone when on a day the gas consumption exceeds - let’s say - 5M3.For that I created below automation, which looks at the gas sensor used in the energy dashboard. I thought I can use it as it reflects daily usage. Not surenif that is what the SENSOR does or what automagically happens due to the ENERGY component in HA.
When I fire the automation manually, it sends me a notification.
Now I have the following questions:
- the notification is only received on the iphone when I open the HA app. Is there a way to receive it when the app is not in use? Do I need some kind of other notification (whatsapp, sms, …)
- the notification does not fire automatically when the number is reached. Am I making a mistake?
A picture of the sensor used:
And the yaml of the automation:
alias: Notificatie gas
- platform: numeric_state
- service: notify.mobile_app_iphone_eric
message: High gas consumption!
title: Gas consumption
Help is very much appreciated!
