Setpoints in Automations


Why can’t we set setpoints in our dashboards that are used in automations. This makes it way easier for the users of the system to tweak the settings for example the startup audio volume, or shutter percentages.

The automation creates a setpoint when that option is used. For example, you create an automation that opens blind to X percentage at 10:00. in device>actions you select use a setpoint, you give that a name and it is created as an entity.

Now you can tweak that setpoint in your dashboard.

You can. Store your set points in input numbers. They can be tweaked from your dashboard and used in your automations.

For example here are some of mine:
