Template - State_Class: total_increasing


I tried to create a new sensor for energy :slight_smile:

 - platform: template
          friendly_name: "Shelly total Energy KWH"
          unit_of_measurement: 'kWh'
         #  state_class: total_increasing
          value_template: "{{ states('sensor.shellyem3_bcff4dfd1d62_channel_a_energy') |float  + states('sensor.shellyem3_bcff4dfd1d62_channel_b_energy') }}" 
          device_class: "energy"

but I am not able to choose the state_class: total increasing in order to include it in the energy board

Do you have any idea how to create such sensor ?

Thank you

That’s because your Template Sensor is configured in legacy format which doesn’t support the state_class option.

You can add state_class: total_increasing to it via Manual Customization or re-configure it in modern format.

Hi thank I move all to my template.yaml and all is working !

Glad to hear that switching to modern format resolved the problem.

Hi, can you show your template.yaml how it is, because the state_class: “total_increasing” doesn’t work for me, it keeps reporting an error in template.yaml. I have to edit it in customize.yaml.

friendly_name: “Virtualna Bateria P5”
unit_of_measurement: “kWh”
device_class: energy
value_template: “{{ states(‘sensor.power5’) }}”

state_class: “total_increasing”
