Emoncms History


The emoncms_history component makes it possible to transfer details collected with Home Assistant to Emoncms.org or your local running Emoncms instance. It will send the data to a specific input node on Emoncms with the entity IDs as a key. Afterwards you can create feeds and dashboards in Emoncms with the collected data.

To use the emoncms_history component in your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
emoncms_history:
  api_key: put your emoncms WRITE api key here
  url: https://emoncms.org
  inputnode: 19
  whitelist:
    - sensor.owm_temperature
    - sensor.owm_wind_speed

Configuration variables:

  • api_key (Required): Your emoncms write api key
  • url (Required): The root URL of your Emoncms installation. (Use https://emoncms.org for the cloud based version)
  • inputnode (Required): Input node that will be used inside emoncms. Please make sure you use a dedicated, not used before, node for this component!
  • whitelist (Required): List of entity IDs you want to publish.
  • scan_interval (Optional): Defines, in seconds, how regularly the states of the whitelisted entities are being gathered and send to emoncms. Default is 30 seconds.
