Nanoleaf - Unable to assign Area

Hi All,

I have been unable to get the Nanoleaf discovered automatically, so i have added it manually via config.yaml.

I would like to be able to assign it to an area, but i can’t seem to be able to do this due to

This entity does not have a unique ID, therefore its settings cannot be managed from the UI


I’m really startin gto get confused with Areas, and what there purpose is and how they are related to light-groups etc… I thought i was doing the right thing by organising all my devices into areas, but this suggests otherwise.

Any ideas?

I concur! It would be really great to be able to add the Nanoleaf to an Area.

You can for instance use areas to turn all lights in that area on or off with a simple service call. Example:

      - service: light.turn_on
          area_id: bedroom

That makes it dynamic so you don’t need to change your automations when light devices is added or removed. Or no need to manually update groups.

April release should take care of this
