  • fix issue when brightness control appear for non light entities
  • add support for color temperature

Please test it and let me know how it works.


Finding lots of rendering issues. Switches in the wrong groups etc… the alarm shows up twice in the wrong area.



Seems to be related to Lovelace rendering. Can you send me your lovelace configuration by any chance?


I don’t have secrets file set up but planned on working on that today I will post once that’s done.


Oh love lace yes. I’ll get that over.


I just installed this and am trying to configure it but what is the username that I should be using to connect to HA? I don’t ever remember creating a user. I’ve tried “owner” and “admin”, but neither worked.


What’s your HA version? You can also use web login option. Please try if works.


I’m running 0.65.0. I’ve since discovered that leaving the user id blank works!


Yes, if the user field is set to blank, api_password authentication is used. Glad to hear it works.


Can people please read the first post of this thread !!!

Can a mod clean up this thread and if possible limit who can post in it.


Sorry I missed that. I have deleted my post and moved it to the correct forum. Thanks for the reminder.

Any chance to have support for the custom card-modder? I have all the cards modded in lovelace, but actually i cannot use lovelace mode as i cannot see any card.


I will add it to my TODO list, but it will not going to be available soon. In the meantime i will make in Ariela to display all unsupported lovelace cards as entities card , in this way you will be able to see something in lovelace mode.


Ok thanks… i can wait…
