# Tibber Binding

The Tibber Binding connects to the Tibber API (opens new window), and enables users to retrieve electricity data:

  • Default: Frequent polls are performed to retrieve electricity price and cost/consumption information
  • Optional: For users having Tibber Pulse, a websocket connection is established to retrieve live measurements

Refresh time (poll frequency) is set manually as part of setup, minimum 1 minute.

Tibber Pulse will automatically be detected by the Binding if present and associated with the token/HomeID used for setup.

# Supported Things

Provided one have a Tibber User Account, the Tibber API is recognized as a thing in openHAB using the Tibber Binding.

Tibber Pulse is optional, but will enable live measurements.

The channels (i.e. measurements) associated with the Binding:

Tibber Default:

Channel ID Description Read-only Forecast
current_total Current Total Price (energy + tax) True yes
current_startsAt Current Price Timestamp True no
current_level Current Price Level True no
daily_cost Daily Cost (last/previous day) True no
daily_consumption Daily Consumption (last/previous day) True no
daily_from Timestamp (daily from) True no
daily_to Timestamp (daily to) True no
hourly_cost Hourly Cost (last/previous hour) True no
hourly_consumption Hourly Consumption (last/previous hour) True no
hourly_from Timestamp (hourly from) True no
hourly_to Timestamp (hourly to) True no
tomorrow_prices JSON array of tomorrow's prices. See below for example. True no
today_prices JSON array of today's prices. See below for example. True no

Tibber Pulse (optional):

Channel ID Description Read-only
live_timestamp Timestamp for live measurements True
live_power Live Power Consumption True
live_lastMeterConsumption Last Recorded Meter Consumption True
live_accumulatedConsumption Accumulated Consumption since Midnight True
live_accumulatedCost Accumulated Cost since Midnight True
live_accumulatedReward Accumulated Reward since Midnight True
live_currency Currency of Cost True
live_minPower Min Power Consumption since Midnight True
live_averagePower Average Power Consumption since Midnight True
live_maxPower Max Power Consumption since Midnight True
live_voltage1 Voltage Phase 1 True
live_voltage2 Voltage Phase 2 True
live_voltage3 Voltage Phase 3 True
live_current1 Current Phase 1 True
live_current2 Current Phase 2 True
live_current3 Current Phase 3 True
live_powerProduction Live Power Production True
live_accumulatedProduction Accumulated Production since Midnight True
live_lastMeterProduction Last Recorded Meter Production True
live_minPowerproduction Min Power Production since Midnight True
live_maxPowerproduction Max Power Production since Midnight True

# Binding Configuration

To access and initiate the Tibber Binding, a Tibber user account is required.

The following input is required for initialization:

  • Tibber token
  • Tibber HomeId
  • Refresh Interval (min 1 minute)

Note: Tibber token is retrieved from your Tibber account: Tibber Account (opens new window)

Note: Tibber HomeId is retrieved from developer.tibber.com (opens new window):

  • Sign in (Tibber user account) and "load" personal token.
  • Copy query from below and paste into the Tibber API Explorer, and run query.
  • If Tibber Pulse is connected, the Tibber API Explorer will report "true" for "realTimeConsumptionEnabled"
  • Copy HomeId from Tibber API Explorer, without quotation marks, and use this in the bindings configuration.
  viewer {
    homes {
      features {

If user have multiple HomeIds / Pulse, separate Things have to be created for the different/desired HomeIds.

# Thing Configuration

When Tibber Binding is installed, Tibber API should be auto discovered.

Retrieve personal token and HomeId from description above, and initialize/start a scan with the binding.

Tibber API will be auto discovered if provided input is correct.

# Tomorrow and Today Prices

The today and tomorrow prices are served as forecast on the current_total channel and as JSON data on the channels today_prices and tomorrow_prices. Example of tomorrow and today prices data structure - an array of tuples:
