Min_max sensor - unknown state

Hi there,

since yesterday my min_max sensor is not showing the correct state anymore:
It only shows as unknown.


  - platform: min_max
    type: mean
    name: avgilluminance
    round_digits: 0
      - sensor.fib_bath_top_light
      - sensor.fib_kitchen_light
      - sensor.fib_living_light

However, the attribute mean actually shows the correct value. As do all the other attributes.
Any ideas how to troubleshoot this?

Does your log contain a warning that says: “Units of measurement do not match for entity …”? If so, that’s why. The state of the min_max entity will be unknown if the unit_of_measurement attribute of the “input” sensors don’t match. It’s possible one of the input sensors temporarily have an incorrect unit_of_measurement attribute. Since sensor.fib_kitchen_light was the last entity to update, maybe check that entity’s state.

Indeed that was the culprit. My Zwave config went haywire… had to completely redo it. Now the sensor works fine again.
