Teleinformation from Linky electrical counter.
teleinfo component allows you to retrieve data from a
French electrical counter using Teleinformation (datasheet). It works with Linky electrical
counter but also legacy EDF electrical counter.
Linky electrical counter
A simple electronic assembly with an optocoupler and a resistor could
let you retrieve detailed power consumption or power production.
There is plenty of example on the web.
As the communication with the Teleinformation is done using UART, you need to
have an UART bus in your configuration with the
connected to the output of the optocoupler component. Additionally, you need to
set the baud rate to 9600bps if counter is configured to work in standard
mode or 1200bps in historical mode. To find out which mode you are using,
simply press -/+ buttons on the counter and look for Standard mode or
Historical mode as below.

# Example configuration entry
- platform: teleinfo
- name: "HCHC"
- name: "HCHP"
- name: "PAPP"
tags (Required): Specify the tag you want to retrieve from the Teleinformation and select with what name to transmit it.
name (Required, string): The name of the tag corresponding to what the electrical counter send.
sensor (Required, Sensor): Associate a sensor with the tag. See options from Sensor.
historical_mode (Optional): Wether to use historical mode or standard mode.
With historical mode, baudrate of 1200 must be used whereas 9600 must be used in
standard mode. Defaults to
update_interval (Optional, Time): The interval to check the
sensor. Defaults to
uart_id (Optional, ID): Manually specify the ID of the UART Component if you want
to use multiple UART buses.
