Appliance Template

Allow for templating a “Appliance” from multiple sensors, switches and such.

For example:
Let’s say that I want to control my room as a “appliance”-
I can add my lights, tv and some sensors to form “appliance.bedroom” which I can control using automations.

“appliance.turn_off” service for this said room will turn off the lights, tv and AC in one command.
“appliance.enable/disable” will listen or not to sensors present in this “appliance” in the same way that we use input booleans.

The term device is already defined and used for another purpose. You’ll have to choose a different word to describe your proposed concept.
