Scenes


You can create scenes that capture the states you want certain entities to be. For example a scene can specify that light A should be turned on and light B should be bright red.

# Example configuration.yaml entry
scene:
  - name: Romantic
    entities:
      light.tv_back_light: on
      light.ceiling:
        state: on
        xy_color: [0.33, 0.66]
        brightness: 200
  - name: Movies
    entities:
      light.tv_back_light:
        state: on
        brightness: 100
      light.ceiling: off

Configuration variables:

  • name (Required): Friendly name of scene.
  • entities (Required): Entities to control.

Scenes can be activated using the service scene.turn_on (there is no ‘scene.turn_off’ service).
