I’ve been using HA for a few weeks now. It’s an excellent piece of software.
I’m not sure whether this is a config, or config and UI issue.
I created a
camera: in my
configuration.yaml (using the
ffmpeg platform, in case this matters). By default (not exactly sure of this) it shows a snapshot preview on the Lovelace UI.
I also have a PIR sensor and an LED to indicate when motion is detected. This all works fine.
I want the camera preview, the LED switch and my associated automation to show up together, so I created a group:
The LED and automation show up fine, but the camera preview still sits in its own card. I couldn’t find anything in the docs to say using a camera entity in a group is prohibited (I also found some examples where it seems people have done this, but can’t see how).
I thought of using the “Configure UI” option on the HA menu which will create a
ui-lovelace.yaml file from what I understand, just to see how that card is configured, but I like that fact that if I don’t do this, HA will add new elements automatically (if I was sure how to revert to the automatic way of doing things I would try it).
I also see no errors in the log.
I’m not sure whether only using groups is the right way to do this, or whether I should create custom cards (and on that note, look into nested groups).
configuration.yaml contains an empty
I’m not using hass.io or another image. I have HA 0.100.2 installed.
Could anybody point me in the right direction?
