In the Hive integration, what entity exposes the "Idle (Auto)" or "Heating (Auto)" value?

Hi everyone,

I’ve recently started using the Hive integration and would like to create an automation that uses whether the central heating is currently on or off as part of the trigger.

When I look at one of the Hive entities that was automatically give a label of climate.thermostat_1 (which I later renamed to “Central Heating”) I can see that Home Assistant is aware of whether the heating is on or off and can display two different labels (“Idle (Auto)” vs “Heating (Auto)”). See the pic below.

Where I’m stuck is I can’t seem to find a way to reference those “Idle (Auto)” or “Heating (Auto)” variables when I’m creating the trigger for the automation?

Any thoughts and ideas much appreciated!

For the [heating,idle] part, try:

{{ state_attr('climate.thermostat_1','hvac_action') }}

for the [auto,heat,off] part, try:

{{ states('climate.thermostat_1') }}
