Change average calcul




I would like use your software but i have a problem. I want to change the average calcul for 2 days, 30 days or 365 days. actually you use a arithmetic average for all averages, but i would like to use a logarithmic average for decibel values. I wonder if this was possible.

Thank You Simon Bonnenfant

Hi Simon,

This is possible with a Custom Sensor. Use the /api/historicdata.xml call to get the historical data of your existing sensor. Loop through the results and return the calculated logarithmic average.
