i added to configuration file the new item - power switch; can I somehow place that switch to specific Area?
- platform: orvibo
- host: 10.0.1.38
Find the entity in your entities list and add it to the area after clicking on the entity.
configuration → entities
hi, thanks but it doesnt work… it says
This entity (‘switch.light’) does not have a unique ID, therefore its settings cannot be managed from the UI. See the documentation for more detail.
Then there’s nothing you can do as that integration does not supply entities with unique_ids
well maybe i can extend config? to make a unique id for it? dont know
Nope, you cannot. It’s not an option for that integration. There’s nothing you can do other than make a feature request to have that integration updated to support unique_ids.
is that a bug and has to be updated ie code has to be updated…?
It’s not a bug, it’s a feature request. The functionality for that integration doesn’t exist, so it needs to be added by adding the code to the integration.
bug = unintended error blocking an exiting feature from working properly
feature request = desired functionality that is missing from a feature
