Home Assistant has a built-in integration called
device_sun_light_trigger to help you automate your lights. The integration will:
- Fade in the lights when the sun is setting and there are people home
- Turn on the lights when people get home after the sun has set
- Turn off the lights when all people leave the house
To enable this integration, add the following lines to your
# Example configuration.yaml entry device_sun_light_trigger:
Specify a specific light/group of lights that has to be turned on.
Specify which light profile to use when turning lights on.
Specify which group of devices to track.
Disable lights being turned off when everybody leaves the house.
A full configuration example could look like this:
# Example configuration.yaml entry device_sun_light_trigger: light_group: group.living_room light_profile: relax device_group: group.my_devices disable_turn_off: 1
