So I have a dumb split system air con that I wanted to make smart, so I made an ESPHome device that can handle automating it. However, I now have a helper for the power, speed, mode and temperature of the air con.
I want to set up some kind of nice looking controls for my air con - something nice that looks connected, kind of like how the mushroom/tile/minimalist have cards that work nicely together. At the moment since everything is a helper, the default that HA is doing is putting them into an entities card, which doesn’t look great.
However, the issue since these are just helpers, there’s no climate entity that I can use for these. I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to either “fake” a climate entity by providing it with helpers, or if there was a way to manually set up some cards to make it look like an existing air con controller.
Happy to provide more info if needed
Thanks in advanced
