Setting up a scene

Hi there.

I’d like to set up a very simple scene consisting of two smart plugs (an AVM DECT200 and an IKEA Tradfri plug). I can switch both separately on and off.

According to the docs it should be as simple as going to scene editor, create a new scene using the wanted devices, put them in the state I want them (ON in my case) and that’s it.

My configuration.yaml reads like this

group: !include groups.yaml
automation: !include automations.yaml
script: !include scripts.yaml
scene: !include scenes.yaml

and my scenes.yaml

- id: '1637609165620'
  name: Wohnzimmer
      linkquality: 199
        state: idle
      update_available: false
      friendly_name: IKEA Steckdose 01
      state: 'on'
      device_locked: false
      locked: true
      friendly_name: Steckdose WZ
      icon: mdi:power-socket-eu
      state: 'on'
  icon: mdi:lamps

When I finally create a button card and try to switch my scene on I get an error saying something like “Error when calling the service scene/turn_off. Service not found”.

Can someone please help me and give me a hint on what I am doing wrong, where is my mistake?
Thank you in advance!

This is not a valid service call. First, it would be a ., not a /. Second, you are not able to “turn off” a scene. If you want to activate the scene, try scene.turn_on.

If you are still having trouble, can you post the YAML for your button card?

Thank you for your answer.

This is no real command or so, it is the error message quoted from memory and translated into English.

The according button card:

type: button
action: toggle
entity: scene.wohnzimmer

All code I mentioned was created by HA, I’m still a beginner and learning :slightly_smiling_face:

you can’t toggle a scene. If you want a scene button…

type: button
entity: scene.wohnzimmer
  action: call-service
  service: scene.wohnzimmer

I am very sorry I discovered your answer just now - my notification settings were somehow turned off :confused:
I will try your suggestion as soon as possible and provide a feedback!
