Simple virtual Switch ? is it possible?

Is it possible to set up a virtual switch that I could place on Lovelace, or NSPanel as a ‘switch’ that I can then use to trigger an Automation?

I just need an entity ‘play_records’ with an on-and-off state that I can build around. Maybe it is a Helper?

Thank You in advance.

I use helpers for a lot of things like that for automations. Not a Lovelace/web user, so I don’t know if/how they are rendered to the user…

these are indeed helpers. input_boolean is the virtual switch you’re looking for…
