         channel: 4
       - name: Wall Switch 2
         module: 0xbc
         channel: 1
         is_pushbutton: true

Configuration variables:

  • devices array (Required): The array contains the binary sensors to configure

    • module (Required): The hexadecimal module address
    • channel (Required): The channel number in the module.
    • is_pushbutton (Optional): Booelan to indicate if a wall switch is a push button or not (default: false)
