@massive

I have a similar issue as some others: I have a few devices that expose multiple sensors. I thought I could extend the sensor in a way that it would allow excluding sensors using regular expression. However, it seems that there is no elegant way to do that with HA and Jinja:

This feature is now available via the search test. The README in the new repository explains how to utilize it. I remembered your comment because it was the basis for my first failed attempt at accomplishing it with custom attributes so I thought I'd point it out to you.

YES! Home Assistant finally supports this! I finally got around to implementing it on this sensor (well, more like documenting it).

@Snuffy2

Is there anyway to modify it to only show if an entity has been unavailable for XX seconds/minutes?

I've updated the sensor and this is now accomplished with a much more elegant method. I recommend updating to the new method.

@Bytelink5616 My pleasure! I'm just paying forward all the help I've received along the way :-)

Can you visit the new repository for the sensor and check out the READ.ME? I've added quite a bit of documentation there.
If you still have a question then feel free to open an issue there so others can benefit.
