The open platform for beautiful analytics and monitoring.

Grafana allows you to query, visualize, alert on and understand your metrics no matter where they are stored. Create, explore, and share dashboards. Learn about your Home Automation system using sexy and compelling graphs, and other data visualizations.

Combine this add-on with the InfluxDB add-on to get insanely powerful insights into your home.


The installation of this add-on is pretty straightforward and not different in comparison to installing any other add-on.

  1. Search for the “Grafana” add-on in the add-on store.
  2. Install the “Grafana” add-on.
  3. Start the “Grafana” add-on.
  4. Check the logs of the “Grafana” to see if everything went well.
  5. Open the Web UI.

Note: As the addon now supports both Ingress and direct access, the default admin user has a password of hassio. Please ensure to change this.


You can always try to get support from the community here at the Home Assistant community forums, join the conversation!

You could also open an issue on GitHub, in case you ran into a bug, or maybe you have an idea on improving the addon:

About the author of this add-on

Hi there!

I am Franck Nijhof, and I have 30 years of programming experience, in many languages. I am using this experience to work on the Home Assistant project by giving back my knowledge and time to the open source community.

The add-on you are currently looking at right now was developed/packaged by me. It is not the only add-on I have created; there are many many more :wink:

However, I have a problem… I am an addict. A :coffee: addict that is. Lucky for you, I turn that C8H10N4O2 (caffeine molecule) into code (and add-ons)!

If you want to show your appreciation, consider supporting me for buying a cup of high octane wakey juice via one of the platforms below! :heart:

Great work again!
After installing the InfluxDB addon yesterday I was already thinking of a Grafana addon and now it’s already there :slight_smile:

Thank you! Releasing the Grafana add-on before the InfluxDB would not have made sense :wink:

How do I set it up without InfluxDB?

Why in earth would you do that?

But yes, you can simply install it, there is no requirement for InfluxDB.

I’m sorry, I’m totally newbie on grafana… I don’t know what are the credentials for login, tried with admin:admin and other standard combinations, but no luck…

Reading the installation instructions might help I guess…

I have successfully setup grafana with the influxdb. All works fine. I have created a temperature graph for example. Now I wanted to create a variable with a list of possible temperatur sensors and link them to the query. So I need something like a “select distinct entity_id from …” as variable and then in the query itself a where entity_id = ‘variable_name’. But I am already struggeling getting a list of entity_ids into the variable. Any idea?

How to update te plugins?

Updating plugins, restarting the add-on should be enough. Since plugins are downloaded on add-on start.

@frenck … yes but … how to “updating plugins”? just restarted the add-ons, the HASS.io and even the whole server… but plugin are not updated. :thinking:

In that case, there are no new plugins update available for this specific setup?
The add-on has NO plugins installed within Grafana. If you add them using the configuration, they will be downloaded on boot time. It will always download the latest available version using the official Grafana tools.

Maybe (for sure) I was not very clear on my previous psot… I’m sorry, but I can’t understand…

This is my Grafana Home:


… and this is my add-on config on HASS.io:

  "log_level": "info",
  "ssl": false,
  "certfile": "fullchain.pem",
  "keyfile": "privkey.pem",
  "plugins": [

It seems that the Singlestat Math need to be updated… but I was unable to do it!

:tada: Release v0.3.0
