The Time integration is built for the controlling and monitoring of times on devices.


Building block integration

This time is a building block integration that cannot be added to your Home Assistant directly but is used and provided by other integrations.

A building block integration differs from the typical integration that connects to a device or service. Instead, other integrations that do integrate a device or service into Home Assistant use this time building block to provide entities, services, and other functionality that you can use in your automations or dashboards.

If one of your integrations features this building block, this page documents the functionality the time building block offers.

If you are looking for a way to create a similar entity, please take a look at the Date/Time helper.
