PSA: You can find any entity in developer tools, states page

I’m creating this post to raise awareness for newcomers because it seems that many people have issues finding entities on their system.

If you are not finding an entity in the entity list in your devices or integration, chances are you can find it in the developer tools → states page. In fact, most YAML configured entities will show up here, but will not show up in an integration page.

Open your Home Assistant instance and show your state developer tools.

On this page, you can filter your entities

Once you find your entity… you can perform any edit on it by clicking the :information_source: icon.


This icon will bring up the normal settings page where you can view, disable, delete, or edit the entity using the tabs at the top of the window.
