Another question from my side…

I have set currency to NOK and set the correct exchange rate. However, when fetching the average price it shows with currency €. Not sure if that is the problem though…

I have made three flows like this:

  1. If price < 1 then variable is 6
  2. If price < 0,5 then variable is 8
  3. If price > 3 then variable is 2

The problem is tht all of these sets the variable, which I find contradicting since price can’t be both <1 and >3(?).

You can change the currency sign also in the advanced device settings. Note: It only changes the sign and not the exchange rate.

new version 4.3.7 is available:

  • Fixed gas price fetching.
  • Fix DAP send LEBA gas rate.

I overdid myself (again :roll_eyes:) #patmyselfontheback

I just uploaded version 4.4.1.

  • Added automatic fetching of exchange rates.
  • DAP markup is now in local currency.

So now all you non-Euro users out there can get their exchange rate automatically updated :partying_face:.

The rates are coming from the European Central Bank and are updated by them once a day: Euro foreign exchange reference rates

This change made me change how fixed markups are now calculated. You can (must) now enter the fixed markup in your own currency and not in Euro. During migration to 4.4.1 I already recalculated the markup for you.

So check the new DAP currency and markup settings after installing this version!


Any volunteers here to help translate PBTH?

version 4.4.3 is now released for testing: Power by the Hour | Homey

  • Added DAP day/night markup (Grid cost in Norway).
  • Fixed time zone offset for Estonia.

It adds the possibility to set a day/night grid tariff for spot prices. This is needed for Norwegian users, but maybe also useful in other countries.

@Kai_Engvik Can you test this?

A nasty time zone offset that appeared in Estonia should also be fixed now.

Thank you for this, I have updated currency settings, yet everything appears still with EUR, do I miss something?

You must also set the Currency unit display. If you leave it empty it will show the Euro sign.

I guess I have it set…

Btw If I would like rate to be automatically fetched, shall I keep Exchange rate with € empty?

Then what is still showing in euro? Do you have a screenshot?

And you can set the exchange rate manually. It will be automatically overwritten on every hour if you enabled the automatic update.

Yes, will check at soonest :slight_smile: Is day night markup set at 22 and 06?

Yes, daytime is fixed from 06:00 untill 22:00 local time.

This is great. The price between 22 and 06 is also the weekend price. Is this handled in the app?

I mean following, or did I get it wrong? :slight_smile:

That is weird. Try setting the currency unit to something else and check if it indeed changes. Be patient, it can take up to 30seconds for the changes to show.

Then again change it to CZK. If it still shows euro after that send me an app diagnostics report.

Thank you, changed to NOR, after seeing it got updated, changed to CZK and seems to be working now! :wink: I hope once I will be able to use this together with photovoltaic system…will let you know in 6 months :wink:

I have done this. It shows NOK in the app home screen, but when using the flow cards everything is shown in euro. Is it an error?

Another thing: In flows, the PbtH flow cards occur for the “When” statement, but when doing an “And” statement PbtH doesn’t show in the list of apps. Shouldn’t it be possible to choose exactly the same flow cards for “When” and “And”?

Do you have a screenshot showing what you mean?

No. But you can use logic cards to create AND cards.

As I was told by @Kai_Engvik in Norway you have something called a grid price. This is high during the day and low during the night. From app version 4.4.3 this can now be setup for the Day Ahead spot pricing driver.
I know nothing about weekend pricing. What do you mean by that?
