It would be great to carry the ‘out of the box’ alert behavior from the legacy interface over to Lovelace.
Behavior in the legacy UI:
- When I add
alert.garage_door_open_longto a group, it will only show up as a line item when the watched condition might actually trigger an alert, e.g. when the garage door is actually open. It does not show up when the garage door is closed - monitoring this condition and offering the option to turn the alert off doesn’t make sense.
- And when the alert is displayed I can toggle it off with a simple click.
Current behavior in Lovelace:
- In order for the alert not to show up in the UI when it’s not relevant, I have to set up a condition card that only shows it if
state_not: "idle"is true.
- And then, when it shows up in the condition card, it displays the alert status as ‘On’ or ‘Off’ instead of showing a toggle. So I have to click on the line item and only then I can switch the alert itself off.
It would be great to have the ‘auto-hide’ feature in Lovelace as well as the toggle straight in the card itself.
