Don't display bubble if less than option

I would love to have a way to “ignore” or not display the solar bubble if it’s less than 5 watts. Screenshot_20200113-181305|250x500 as you can see from the attached screenshot, it’s distracting.


I’d love to hear others’ opinions on this. Would you use it for specific devices as well or just the solar bubble? What, in particular, is distracting about it? For consumption, I personally prefer to see everything, however small the load. “Missing” values seems like it’d net confusion, given that the bubbles will no longer add up.

It’s distracting because I know the sun is down. Hehe… I get that the algorithm can’t get the bubbles sized exactly in relation to how much energy they represent. I’m okay with that. I’m not okay with a negative watt bubble.

I did consider the possibility of ignoring other things. I can see the use cases for that. Maybe someone has a large number of Philips Hue lights they just don’t care about.

An option to show watts on iOS apps. Android too if it’s missing.

It’s on the browser interface all the time. An option to show or hide it to be consistent with apps.

I’d like this feature as well. Some of my smartplug-connected devices are not properly classified as “idle”, so occasionally I’ll have bubbles appearing, for example, due to a 2W standby load from my washer. I think the root cause requiring a fix there is actually the smartplug “idle” algorithm, but this feature would be a helpful band-aid.

Science lab and living room are Philips Hue bulbs, probably 2 watts. It’s now several hours past sundown, so the option to hide solar if less than, would be nice.
