Recently installed HA on a Raspberry Pi.
Now taking little baby steps into automation.
I installed MQTT and I managed to get a Sonoff switch on the Homepage which I can switch off and on.
Nice! But now I want more.
How can I toggle the switch off or on automatic.
Let’s say OFF at 22:00
To my understanding, I have to edit the YAML file
I found a Automation tab in Configuration but I can’t get it to work.
So, edit the YAML file.
I came up with this:
switch SonoffBasic1: - platform: mqtt name: "Sonoff Switch01" icon: mdi:power-plug state_topic: "stat/NiRiSonoffBasic1/POWER" command_topic: "cmnd/NiRiSonoffBasic1/POWER" availability_topic: "tele/NiRiSonoffBasic1/LWT" qos: 1 payload_on: "ON" payload_off: "OFF" payload_available: "Online" payload_not_available: "Offline" retain: true automation: -alias: Switch off trigger: - at: '22:00:00' platform: time entity_id: switch.sonoff_switch01 action: service: switch.turn_off entity_id: switch.sonoff_switch01
But (ofcourse) it is not working, otherwise I wouldn’t be here
Can somebody push me in the right direction?
