I wanted to make a notification flow, that gets the average electricity price
aep from a sensor and compares that to the current electricity price
cep from another sensor.
This flow sends a notification to my phone on every run (once per hour) about the current price and if the price is below or above average. So far so good, i have got that part working.
This is fine, but 24 notifications a day are quite annoying if it would suffice to get a notification only if the price falls below or rises above the average price.
what i want is the following.
i want to modify the flow to check the price (maybe every 5 minutes) but only notifies me once the
cep falls below
aep and also once the
cep rises obove the
if, for example, the
cep was below the
aep the last time the flow was running (i.e. run 1
cep = 0.292
aep 0.310) and is below the
aep again (i.e.run 2
aep 0.310), i dont want to get notified.
Basically i only want to get notified if the state changes from
cep < aep to
cep > aep or
cep > aep to
cep < aep.
How would i get this state-change-part to work?
I dont want a "drop in solution" from you guys, but a hint in the right direction.
i have no expirience in this stuff, but i want to get a grasp on it an learn, so if someone can come up with a viable idea i am all ears
I am also fine with the right "searchterm" for the Forum-Search-Function
thanks for your time
(btw, sry if i butchered the english language, obviously it is not my fist language)
