I have a power plug that reports kwh. All is working and it seems the kwh sensor is cumulative, which is great. I can keep track of how much power a device is using over time. However, is there a way for me to reset the counter on this sensor? Im guessing the device might be the one keeping track and not home assistant. Since the state values seem to always be incrementally higher.
Check Utility Meter:
Thanks for the pointer, using the SERVICE UTILITY_METER.CALIBRATE has given me the result that I was looking for… to get the value of my Gas entity reset from it’s accumulated number back to zero.
I had been tracking gas consumption in kWh but with the latest update to the Energy dashboard wanting values in m^3, I was looking for a way to get back to zero without creating a new entity.
