Create light entity using a switch from the UI

I can’t find if this is possible - seems odd that it isn’t from the UI - so checking if I have missed something.

Is it possible to do this (in my light.yaml) via the UI

- platform: switch
  name: Bedroom Mirror
  entity_id: switch.sw5

This makes a switch behave like a light.

Yes you can

But that is not via the UI (unless I am missing something).


Ah, without typing, no, can’t be done.

Seems an odd omission from the UI considering what can be done via it :slight_smile:
