Home Assistant Sensor¶
homeassistant sensor platform allows you to create sensors that import
states from your Home Assistant instance using the native API.
# Example configuration entry sensor: - platform: homeassistant name: "Temperature Sensor From Home Assistant" entity_id: sensor.temperature_sensor
This component is only for numeral states. If you want to import arbitrary text states from Home Assistant, use the Home Assistant Text Sensor.
Albeit you might not plan to __export__ states from the node and you do not need an entity of the node in Home Assistant, this component still requires you to register the node under Home Assistant. See: Getting started with Hassio
Importing attributes is currently not supported, but you can create template sensors in Home Assistant that return the attribute of a sensor and then import the template sensor here.
