I made three of BruhAutomation’s MQTT Multi Sensors (link) and have them reporting to a Mosquitto MQTT server which feeds into Home Assistant. They work great except for when they become disconnected from MQTT because of a network issue or because I moved one around.
When they are disconnected from MQTT, the value reported in Home Assistant seems to go to -17.8 deg. C.or 0 deg. F (the sensor is natively reporting in Farenheit). I’m not sure if this is a Home Assistant thing or an MQTT thing but I would like to stop it from happening if possible. I would like the temperature line to be discontinous rather than bottom out to 0 deg. F anytime I disconnect it or there’s a network issue… Can anyone tell me how I can achieve this?
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
