Light status without controls?

Is it possible to show a light status without the controls to change it in HADashboard? That includes tapping on the icon itself. In other words, I want to be able to see if a light is on, but not allow anyone to change it.

Sure. A light entity has a state of off and on, so you could use a switch widget, and add

enable: 0

to disable clicking:

  widget_type: switch
  entity: light.my_light
  title: "my lamp"
  icon_on: mdi-lamp
  icon_off: mdi-lamp
  enable: 0

I think the enable key is still undocumented but you can use it for switch and input_boolean widgets.
