  2. Choose what percentage above or below the average daily price you want an automation to be triggered.
    Example: You can set an automation to be triggered when the current price is 5% higher than the daily average price. If the daily average price is 1 NOK, the automation will run when the current price exceeds 1.05 NOK.
  3. Select modes in which the automation should happen.
