These values can be used to control appliances according to the lowest and forecast prices during the day. 

To communicate with the API you need to acquire a OAuth access token and pass this along with every request passed to the server.
A Personal Access Token give you access to your data and your data only. 
This is ideal for DIY people that want to leverage the Tibber platform to extend the smartness of their home. 
Such a token can be acquired here: https://developer.tibber.com

 

When creating your access token or OAuth client you’ll be asked which scopes you want the access token to be associated with. 
These scopes tells the API which data and operations the client is allowed to perfom on the user’s behalf. 

The scopes your app requires depend on the type of data it is trying to request. 
If you for example need access to user information you add the USER scope. 

If information about the users homes is needed you add the appropiate HOME scopes.

 

Tomorrow values are available from 13:00 hour

Thanks for using the Tibber Quickapp. Updates are coming soon, because there is a lot more to do with Tibber and they are expanding their services in more countries. De device type for daily energy isn't, unfortunately, supported bij Fibaro's Yubii app yet. This devices type is the only way to show the energy usage in the new Fibaro Energy panel and Fibaro promised to support the device type in Yubii real soon (should have been done by now).

Great option! Only one "but": in Yubii I don't see "daily energy". Rest works great :)
