Is this available yet? Cannot find it when searching.

Available now:

It looks really good. Been testing it out for a couple of hours now, and I found that my current price is not updating in the app. In the tibber app it has updated. And the flow is correct, but it doesn’t update the utility app.

Any ideas?

Have you created the necessary flow, as described in point #5 on the top of this page?

Share flow

Okay, I think I found the problem.
The flow is good.

I just noticed that the app shows the previous hours price, now it says 6.43 kr/kWh, when it should have been 5.82 kr/kWh, as it says in the tibber app.

Is this right?

Great app, once again @balmli

I might be misunderstanding something, but I’m trying to get my grid prices correct, but can’t.

I have the yearly fixed price + price pr kw/h:

Totally different price then what I input in the advanced settings. Or is there a calculation I don’t understand?

Another thing about the grid price. I have different summer and winter prices for the current grid system. I think most people do. Perhaps you didn’t bother to implement this as a feature, since the new system will be applied (probably) early next year?

Like the comment above, I also have problems getting the price from tibber to update. This might be a problem with the trigger from tibber, because it updated fine when I ran the flow manually.

The summer/winter and day/night prices are further down at the advanced page :slight_smile: scroll past the new “kapasitetsledd”, and you should find them :slight_smile:

Yes, I see that, but isn’t that prices for the new price system?

Fixed a bug yesterday that was reported by another user regarding grid price (nettleiepris).

Get access to and install the test-version v. 1.0.3 with the fix:

I found a solution to the price updating with wrong price.
I set a 5 min delay on the price change, in the flow, so the price in tibber gets time to change before it utpadates the price in the app :slight_smile:

OK, I don’t have Tibber as a utility provider, so it’s hard for me to test this.

Did you use the price (TOTAL) from the Price changed - trigger ?

Or a capability tag (Current price) ?

This is the flow I’m using now, to change the price. It works, with the right prices. And the 5 min offset is OK for me.

I think it could work directly without any delay, if you use the tag set by the “Price changed” trigger called total.

Now you are using the Current price capability tag, that is set by the app, but unfortunately isn’t accessible until after the “Price changed” - trigger has run. This is due to the Tibber - Homey - app.

Thanks! I’ll give it a try! Just changed the flow now :slightly_smiling_face:

Great. Thanks.
Your suggestion for the Tibber flow also seems to work :+1:t2:

Could you add the ability to automatically get the total price based on the electricity support package by the government?

Jeg har innstallert din app på to enheter . Pulser fra Tibber og på en Heavy Duty Smart Switch som jeg har på varmtvannsbereder. På pulser fungerer den helt utmerket. Men på Heavy Duty så sliter den litt ( eller jeg ). Bereder har jo konstant effekt når den står på. Den forandrer ikke effekten og derfor får ikke din app noen oppdateringer ?! Hvordan er beste måte å sette opp dette på ? Kostnader pr time stemmer når man åpner den men blir feil når jeg ønsker å ja den frem på appen.

Yes, I see your issue.

I will fix in the next release so that it updates regularly.
