homebridge-energy-price

This is a fork of ecoen66/homebridge-comed-hourlybilling. It is modified to run as a temperature sensor so that negative values are allowed. I created this project to automate EV charging when prices are negative, but it can be used as a monitor or for other automations as well.

Installation

Run these commands:

% sudo npm install -g homebridge
% sudo npm install -g homebridge-energy-price

NB: If you install homebridge like this:

sudo npm install -g --unsafe-perm homebridge

Then all subsequent installations must be like this:

sudo npm install -g --unsafe-perm homebridge-energy-price
