I have many centralite appliance outlets in my house. I also have neruio whole house power monitoring.
I have a panel that shows current power consumption of every centralite outlet. I want to add up all my outlets into a total watts in use tile.
It seems that the "Simulated Power Meter" is no longer a built in device in the IDE. So I used "Simulated Temperature Sensor" and webcore to add up all the outlets in to a single Total number.
This works great! Except, it shows up as a temperature with the degree symbol next to it, and without power (w) at the bottom of the tile. (don't yell at me, I know this is pretty trivial in the grand scheme of things)
I modify "Virtual Temperature Sensor" and make it a "Simulated Power Meter"
This works, however the update/refresh of the tile is many, many times slower, maybe in the 5 minute range?
I can see in the ST app that I am getting the update correctly reflected every 30 seconds, same as the temp, but the temp tile updates, and the power tile takes forever.
Is there something in the device handler that dictates how actiontiles treats the refresh? I'm hoping something jumps out at someone in the know. Thanks in advance.
