I’m trying to see if I can get power rates from my power company but these are only available after login. The class I’ve deciphered is
.rate which identifies the four values shown below (and yes, I know our power is very expensive!).
I tried using the following but I get an unknown value from the sensor. I don’t know how to test if I’m even logging in let alone whether any data is returned. Anyone got any tips? Ideally all I need to extract is one value <$0.20c and one value >$0.20c as the morning and evening rates are always the same. The damn energy platform has sent me down a deep dark rabbit hole!

P.S I’ve tried using
digest authentication too without success.
