How to add wall light switch to group.all_lights?


I got couple Yeelight bulbs that are automatucally grouped into group.all_lights. I addedd wall switch for another room to control light by hand and by HA. Now I would expected that wall switch will be also in light group and all my automations like “turn off all lights if nobody home” would include new light control device. However I got new entity “Switches”, and group group.all_switches.

Can I add somehow this one switch to group.all_lights, or better add group.all_switches to group.all_light? If yes, how?

Create a new group called my_lights and add everything you want to it. The all_* groups are exactly that, all lights or all switches, not mixed, just system groups of everything in that domain.

Have you try defining the wall switch as light in configuration?
Depending on what wall switch you have, you may have to use template/script for it in the light module.

Its Aqara Wall Switch connected trough gateway so no direct config in HA. Creating new group and modifying a little automations will be the solution. Thanks.
