Brightness and color temp for light group

Hi,

In my configuration.yaml i got the line

group: !include groups.yaml

and groups.yaml looks like this:

Panel Lights:
    name: Panel Lights
    entities:
      -  light.panel_1
      -  light.panel_2
      -  light.panel_3

When I create a button for “Panel Lights” all three turn on and of as they should. However, I can not create a control for brightness nor color temperature. The interface tells me I need to have objects of type light to do that. Which it is (i guess). One control for each panel is no issue, but we want to control the set as one

Any ideas how to solve it?

Create a light_group instead of a group that happens to contain only lights.

Thnx.
Changing config.yaml to

#group: !include groups.yaml

light:
  - platform: group
    name: Panel Lights:
    entities:
      -  light.panel_1
      -  light.panel_2
      -  light.panel_3

does the trick. Thnx
