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: true
      light.ceiling:
        state: true
        xy_color: [0.33, 0.66]
        brightness: 200
  - name: Movies
    entities:
      light.tv_back_light:
        state: true
        brightness: 100
      light.ceiling: false
      media_player.sony_bravia_tv:
        source: HDMI 1

Configuration Variables

name

(string)(Required)Friendly name of scene.

entities

(list)(Required)Entities to control.

As you can see, there are two ways to define the states of each entity_id:

  • Define the state directly with the entity.
  • Define a complex state with its attributes.

The mapping from states to services is done with the state helper. So, please have a look there for available states for your scenes.

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

# Example automation
...
automation:
  trigger:
    platform: state
    entity_id: device_tracker.sweetheart
    from: 'not_home'
    to: 'home'
  action:
    service: scene.turn_on
    entity_id: scene.romantic

Please note that the scene component currently only supports one service call per entity to achieve the state. Due to this limitation, you cannot set states belonging to different services. A workaround for this limitation is to write a script, which you then turn on in your scene.
