Icon_template for MQTT sensor

MQTT sensors do not have an icon_template attribute.

They do support device classes though.

What is your sensor, there may be a class that fits?

These are UV sensor and rain sensors: rain per hour(mm/hour) and rain for 24hours(mm).
I want to change an icon depending from the sensor state.

 icon_template: >-
       {% if value | float(0) > 0 %}
           mdi:umbrella-outline
       {% else %}
           mdi:umbrella-closed-outline
       {% endif %}

Ok, neither of those have a suitable device class.

Don’t forget to vote for your own request.
