Fan Group


The group platform can create a fan that combines several fan entities into one.

To enable Fan Groups in your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
fan:
  - platform: group
    entities:
      - fan.lanai_west
      - fan.lanai_south
      - fan.lanai_east

Configuration Variables

entities string | list Required

List of all fan entities you want to control.

name string (Optional, default: Fan Group)

Name to use in the frontend.

unique_id string (Optional)

An ID that uniquely identifies this fan group. If two fans have the same unique ID, Home Assistant will raise an error.

Functionality

It works best if you group fans with the same supported features together (like support for percentage/direction/oscillation), but is not limited to it. In case you have bundled fans with different features together, the controls will only affect those fans that support the actions.
