I would like to be able to easily remove or edit a bad data point from a sensor. Here is an example of a humidity sensor that has a random reading that throws off the history graphs which I like to use.
It seems like the only real way to do this now is to edit the recorder database directly. There was an update in 2022.4 that allows for correcting aggregate statistics using Developer Tools | Statistics, but I don’t think that helps in this particular situation. For one, this sensor isn’t even in this section, but I think that is because I don’t have all of the necessary properties configured in this MQTT sensor. But it also appears this is only for updating aggregate values (e.g. resetting the summation from a point in time). I don’t have any statistics being calculated on this sensor (at least not that I know of); it just retains the data for months.
For me, this is also unrelated to the Energy Dashboard, which it seems like many other people are referring to when looking for similar help. And I see a couple other WTH posts about the Energy Dashboard as well, but I think they are different than what I am asking for.
Ideally, I would be able to edit or delete this data point directly in the History view or at least get to it from the History view.
I think that the aggregate calculations make this request more complicated, so I’m not sure if there is a way to only allow it on non-aggregated sensors? Thanks for considering and all of the hard work from the developers! If there is already an easier way of fixing this type of issue without editing the database directly, I’d love for someone to point it out.
