In HomeAssistant, I want to read the value of a global variable that has a dot in the name
As an example, I want to:
The problem is the name of the variable
sun.sun That dot in the name of the variable gets interpreted as another object (which is expected)
How can I "escape" that dot in the above expression?
I tried several ways, but without any luck.
Any tips are welcome,
You can try:
Can you change the name of the variable in HomeAssistant? That would seem to be a better solution
Thanks ! I had seen this alternate syntax, but I missed the trick with the single quotes. Also, I had a dot before the [...]; which was not good.
Learned something new here
Unfortunately those are predefined names by HomeAssistant. Those variables are created by HomeAssistent and represent the states of the different sensor.
Thank you both, problem solved and something learned
