Group


Groups allow the user to combine multiple entities into one.

Check the States page from the Developer Tools and browse the Current entities: listing for all available entities.

# Example configuration.yaml entry
group:
  kitchen:
    name: Kitchen
    entities:
      - switch.kitchen_pin_3
  climate:
    name: Climate
    entities:
      - sensor.bedroom_temp
      - sensor.porch_temp
  awesome_people:
    name: Awesome People
    entities:
      - device_tracker.dad_smith
      - device_tracker.mom_smith

Configuration Variables

namestring(Optional)

Name of the group.

entitieslistRequired

Array or comma delimited string, list of entities to group.

allboolean(Optional, default: false)

Set this to true if the group state should only turn on if all grouped entities are on.

iconstring(Optional)

The icon that shows in the front end.

Group behavior

By default when any member of a group is on then the group will also be on. Similarly with a device tracker, when any member of the group is home then the group is home. If you set the all option to true though, this behavior is inverted and all members of the group have to be on for the group to turn on as well.
