Customize GUI


Would it be possible to place friendly_name: in the groups.yaml for each device or do they need to be in the main configuration file under customize: ?


They need to be under customise.
But have a look into packages, I have a package per room or sometimes a component (like zwave and media) then each room has its own set of customise, groups, automations etc, makes it a bit more accessible.

Thanks alot. That’s what I was hoping for!

Sorry just re-read that. No it doesn’t have to be in the main configuration.yaml, but yes it needs to be under customise.

There’s a few ways of splitting out your files, includes and packages.

I started with includes but moved to packages when it was introduced. I’d also use the !secrets as well.
