sensor report show total not average.



i have a sensor that pulls the cost for running my HVAC system, and i generate a monthly report showing the cost for each 24 hour day, however, at the top of the report it shows me the average, is there a way to make it show me the total of of each day added together?

Unfortunately, the reporting engine doesn't suppor that kind of arithmetics. Is the total cost stored once per day, i.e. do you have one absolute value per day?

The absolute value changes on each update based on the runtime and it updates once and hour.

The last update, at around 11:40pm each night contains the final total for that day.

Okay - how far in are you into the smarthome monitoring appliance hole if I may ask? If you have a nodered instance running, you could get those values into that or HomeAssistant as well :)
