General settings file

I realize that I have a bunch of settings which are global. I would like to put these in a settings file that my automations can reference. That way I don’t have to manually edit every single instance in my yaml files.

Is there a best practice for this? How have you guys done it?

I hear you, I have similar needs as well. I would love to see HA integrate a “common.yaml” file what we could pull values/setting from. But in the meantime, I place some of these in my secret.yaml file and reference them where needed.
