Good Morning everyone. Started using home assistant this week after using openhab for 5 years. I had a complete server meltdown and even with backups, I wasn’t able to get my server going again. I’ve always wanted to give home Assistant ago so here I am. First impressions are amazing as the gui layout is great and the amount of integrations that auto configure and find devices is unbelievable.
So here is my first issue. I’m trying to create a presence group so I can see if person x y z…… are at home or not, to control heating and lights. On the home assistant helper gui there’s no option for a presence group. So I followed this guide to create one in the file editor.
I came to realise that my file editor didn’t contain a groups.yaml file, so I created one. Then realised that the groups.yaml file had to be included in the configuration file so I did that. But the group still isn’t appearing in the gui after a restart.
Can only one offer some advice or point in the right direction please?
