I’m new to Home Assistant which I’m currently evaluating as alternative to OpenHab. So far I’m very impressed and many things are running fine right out of the box, e.g. the HUE integration is great.
However, I’m struggling with KNX integration. So far I have this test configuration:
knx: light: - name: 'arbeitszimmer.deckenlicht' address: '0/0/50'
Which works and provides me an entity with the name “light.arbeitszimmer_deckenlicht”. I can use this entity to turn on and off the light and all the other things that are possible with entities. What really makes me headaches is what is neccessary to also have a device entry for the KNX managed light as I have for all my Philips HUE devices.
I must admit that I’m not yet completely familiar with the concept of devices and entities. But when I try to setup some automations, I’ve learned that entities without devices are not as easy to integrate as if I would have both. Sure I can work around this limitations with scripts and scenes but this makes the setup much more complex.
Any hint is greatly appreciated!
