Which Power option to use for the Energy section?


I have multiple devices and they have different Power attributes.
Current Power
Daily Power
Today Power
Total Power
Monthly Power

Which Power attribute should I use for the Energy section? I guess it is either Current Power or Total Power. Maybe another one?

I guess Total Power. Difficult to say without more information.

Also you can’t use power sensors with the energy dashboard, only energy sensor. So you need to cobvert it to energy first, e.g. with the integration integration.

Thank you. I guess, I was supposed to day Energy instead of Power. Which energy option should I use? Today, Total, Daily, or Monthly?

I was thinking about Total, but does it reset every day or will it continue collecting forever? I guess I do not completely understand how it works and what it collects.

What values do the attributes show? W or kWh? If it’s kWh (energy) then I’d say use the total one that collects total energy sonce inception.

Some show W when others show kWh. Here is one of examples:

Use the last one.
