Generic_thermostat cannot be used in automation?

I configured a generic_thermostat, but its not available as a device for use in automations.
I want to automate disabling it for some weekdays.

Can this be done…??

Like the majority of integrations that creates entities. You use those with standard triggers, conditions, and actions.

Yes, but the problem is that it does not show to be selected under actions for example.
And if I type the entity id manually it gets deleted when leaving en input field.

Its listed under entities. But in the automation I can select a device, but not an entity…?

Use “call a service” “climate:turn on”

Not all entities are devices. Or actually most are not devices.
Just use the entity as the trigger or action or whatever you are trying to do.

Excellent! Thank you very much :slight_smile:
