Local calendar

The Local calendar integrationIntegrations connect and integrate Home Assistant with your devices, services, and more. [Learn more] allows you to create a calendar of events in Home Assistant for powering automations.

A calendar entity has a state and attributes that represent the next upcoming event (only). A calendar trigger is a much more flexible way to power automations with fewer limitations than using the entity state.

  • Turn on a light at the start of the event named Front Yard Light
  • Send a notification 5 minutes before the start of any event
  • Stop the media player 30 minutes after the end of the event named Exercise.

See Calendar Automations for an overview, and read more about Calendar Trigger Variables for the available information you can use in a condition or action such as the event summary, description, location and more.
