I have a “smart LED” bulb (
AI_LIGHT, but I think this is a broader class of LEDs) which I flashed with ESPurna and presented to HA in
configuration.yaml as (taken from ESPurna interface)

I then created two cards for it: a
Light card and an
None of them is perfect: the entity card only allows to switch on and off and the light card acts strange: one cannot switch it on/off by clicking on it, only by sliding the marker around. Then to switch it off I need to use the entity card.
My question: how should such a bulb be configured? Specifically: how to make it appear as a normal lamp (which can be switched on and off), with a settable brightness and colors - in Lovelace?
