Interactive button on dashboard

So I’m new to this, like really new, I’m still surprised I managed to set up the server, nonetheless I cant figure out how/if there’s a way to just add a button to my dashboard that activate an automation, like a button on my dashboard that turns down lights and turn on the TV for example.

If the automation is only activated by the button then use a script instead (same as an automation but without triggers):

You can assign this script to a dashboard button tap action.

e.g. button card:

show_name: true
show_icon: true
type: button
tap_action:
  action: call-service
  service: script.cinema_on
  target: {}
entity: script.cinema_on

Script:

script:
  cinema_on:
    sequence:
    - service: media_player.turn_on
      entity_id: media_player.cinema_av_rx
    - service: script.projector_on
    - service: kodi.call_method
      data:
        entity_id: media_player.cinema_kodi
        method: Input.Home
    - service: media_player.select_source
      data:
        entity_id: media_player.cinema_av_rx
        source: 'Projector'
