History Graph Card - Hiding Entity Attributes

I’m trying to use the History Graph Card to show the history of temp in the house.

When using the climate.template entity for my ecobee thermostat I get what I need but I also get
a bunch of other stuff Target Temp high and low points etc…

Is there a way to hide these values from the chart?

I’ll pile on here as I’m looking for an answer to this as well. In my case I’d like to permanently hide the “current temperature” because I use a separate sensor for that data.

Took three months? Took ya long enough… LOL

I’m in the same position; I don’t care about graphing any attribute of my climate sensors other than the actual temperature of the room. But the graph shows Target temperature as well as the actual ambient temperature. I can filter the whole climate entity out, but I just want to ignore one of the entitie’s attributes:

i have the same question.

Hmmm been a year

you mean i should start a new topic?

I found a solution. Create a new entity with only current temperature as data.
explanation here:


in this example I added this to configuration.yaml:

# sensors
sensor:
  - platform: template
    sensors:
      living_temp:
        friendly_name: "Living"
        unit_of_measurement: '°C'
        value_template: "{{ state_attr('climate.tstat_309be2', 'current_temperature') }}"

If you now create a history card, use the new created template entity and you only see the current_temperature one you created:

Ah so basically making a Template Sensor into a “Filter” entity, and recording that one and not the real device. Good idea, should work. Yet another workaround trick for the list :stuck_out_tongue:

That works to extract one value, what I am going for is a bit different. I want to see the set point and the heating or cooling shading, but I want to hide the current temperature from the graph as I have a different temperature sensor I use for that value.

Tom… thanks… that works!

I wish I had more time…or could take more time to dig into the bowels of HA… I’m a person with WAY too much life… and too many projects…

Thanks again for sharing!
