The February update to the Home Energy Management system is on the way!
The main changes this month are:
- Upgrade to Home Assistant version 2021.2
- Addition of an Outgoing Octopus custom integration
This update will roll out on Friday 12th February.
The Outgoing Octopus integration can be added in the usual way for an integration. Go to Configuration → Integrations, and search for
Outgoing Octopus. The integration will use your location data to select your pricing region.
You can add a price card to your dashboard in the same was as for Octopus Agile - just hit the toggle for Outgoing and it will select the right data source and colour scheme.
Please note - it may take up to 10 minutes for the Octopus data to appear on your system once you have installed the integration
