Displaying cover state in UI?

My cover has a state “open” or “closed” but when I display it in an entity card you can’t see the state. What would be the best way to be able to show the words “open” or “closed”? A binary_sensor template?


FYI - If you just use a single Entity card instead of Entities it should show the current state in text in addition to the icon changing (and color if you enable that) that you currently have.

If you want to keep it inside an entities card, you can use this custom card type for the row for your cover to change what’s shown on the right (secondary info area).
