In the last post i showed you how do i get data in Home Assistant from a Sonoff Pow R2 using MQTT now we going to use that data to feed the energy dashboard. Because just like i said my sonoff is measuring my single solar panel production and we can use that to integrate with the beautiful dashboard that Hass as gifted us. How do i measure my house energy consumption?
Last week I’ve been tinkering with Home Assistant and found out that it is a pretty handy piece of software after a few one click integration with my existing smart home devices i stumpled uppon a problem my Sonoff por R2 that was using mqtt to monitor my solar panel power not showing up, even with auto discovery on. So i created a custom config in the configuration.yaml and everything went smooth.
