Can I create a custom entity?

Hi everyone!

I’m trying to integrate my Broadlink IR blinds into Home Assistant. I’ve been able to control them by using a button to call a service which tells the broadlink to send the IR command. But I would like to be able to use the Mushroom cover card, which has individual up and down buttons as shown below. Is there a way I can create a custom ‘cover’ entity, which when ‘open’ is called it sends a certain IR command? That way it works just like a regular blind entity. Or is there an easier way of making a cover card work with the Broadlink?

You could look into the template cover which allows you to define actions for open/close/stop
