Groups removed(?) from 0.107


According to 0.107: Multiple Lovelace Dashboards, adds helpers, new media player card - Home Assistant

Groups - Groups are NOT being removed, but the configuration options, services, and service options related to the (previously deprecated and now removed) States UI are now removed in this release.

I used to have a group of people where was check the state if this group is On/Off and according to this automation was initiated.


  name: People
  icon: mdi:human-male-female
    - input_boolean.personA_present
    - input_boolean.personB_present
    - binary_sensor.dt_router_personA
    - binary_sensor.dt_router_personB

Could you please explain how to use it in 0.107 version? Should I check manually all of these entities in my automation?

I used to have:

{% if trigger.to_state.state == “on” and trigger.entity_id == “group.group_people” %}

Should I use this instead:

{% if trigger.to_state.state == “on” and (trigger.entity_id == “input_boolean.personA_present” or trigger.entity_id == “input_boolean.personB_present” or trigger.entity_id == “binary_sensor.dt_router_personA” or trigger.entity_id == “binary_sensor.dt_router_personB”) %}

Thank you for explanation.

I’m using group as well without any problem (0.107.4)

The reason your group trigger isn’t working is because the ‘group’ component didn’t load at boot. Check your code in groups.yaml for any deprecated code such as 'view: true ', ‘hide_if_away’ or ‘control: true’ (something like those) and remove those lines.

You’re right. I was using some view configurations. I did some cleanup because I had some legacy stuff regarding organization of UI there before LovelanceUI was as a default one.
Thank you.
