🔹 slider-entity-row - Add sliders to entities cards

but make sure you are using the correct version of that plugin.

Fan control entity row is for the older HA Fan implementation that uses a speed list.

the new HA requires you to use either percentages or modes. there are plugins available for those as well in HACS.

sorry in advance for this super silly post, but I can’t seems to get the slider working at all.
I did add through HACS, which automatically added the resources (/hacsfiles/lovelace-slider-entity-row/slider-entity-row.js?hacstag=1448997001721) inside /settings/dashboards/resources

when I add a light or my IKEA blinds

  - entity: light.downstaire
    name: downstairs
    toggle: true
    type: 'custom:slider-entity-row'

this return “No card type found”

2 thoughts:

  1. Are you adding the row as an entity within an entities card, as in the examples?
type: entities
  - light.bed_light
  - type: custom:slider-entity-row
    entity: light.kitchen_lights
  1. If you are correctly trying to use it in an entities card, check your browser developer tools to see if there is a loaded notice for slider-entity-row (should show the plugin name and version):

Is it possible to hide the position when sliding (here 14) ?

Schermafbeelding 2022-01-15 145203

Possible by card-mod only

Or even better : the value itself (in my example the “+ 00:20”) ?

- type: custom:slider-entity-row
  entity: light.kitchen_lights
  hide_state: true

See all the options available here:

I did that, but I still get the position when sliding

  - type: custom:slider-entity-row
    entity: input_select.offset_sfeer_morgen
    hide_state: true

  name: ''
    - '-60'
    - '-55'
    - '-50'
    - '-45'
    - '-40'
    - '-35'
    - '-30'
    - '-25'
    - '-20'
    - '-15'
    - '-10'
    - '-5'
    - '0'
    - '5'
    - '10'
    - '15'
    - '20'
    - '25'
    - '30'
    - '35'
    - '40'
    - '45'
    - '50'
    - '55'
    - '60'

This works fine, even without mentioning hide_state :

  - entity: input_number.basisvolume_pioneer_receiver
    name: Basisvolume Pioneer

Running last version : Home Assistant 2021.12.9

I don’t think the options should make a difference, but my input_selects are all sets of strings, not numbers.
Here’s a complete test card I threw together just now:

type: entities
  - entity: input_select.harmony_activity
    type: custom:slider-entity-row
    hide_state: false
  - entity: input_select.light_fade_out_picker
    type: custom:slider-entity-row
    hide_state: true
  - entity: input_select.google_homes
    type: custom:slider-entity-row

And the result:


is it possible to use an input_boolean to hide a slider of type custom:slider-entity-row?
I am using this control not for lights, but for a fan, and I need the input_boolean to toggle the manual control of the fan. And only if input_boolean is on, then I want to show the slider.

I have it not set up with conditional cards, but it’s messy, since I have 4 cards now.

Use card_mod to hide a slider conditionally.

Hi, you mean by setting the visibility of the slider to hidden based on a variable?

Do you have an example of how this could work?

I do not have an example for this slider-entity-row.
But there are a lot of examples here, you may find a code for hiding an element or the whole row.
Probably it should be based on using a “display: none” CSS property.

Sorry for the late reaction ! Do you get the activity of your harmony or the position number when sliding ?

I created a new one to test, but still the position number when sliding…

type: entities
  - type: custom:slider-entity-row
    entity: climate.airco_gang
    name: temperatuur airco gang
    icon: mdi:thermometer
  - type: custom:slider-entity-row
    entity: input_select.select_fanspeed_test
    name: windkracht

Already answered:

Probably… Or by direct changing of the “paper-progress” code.

Huh…you’re right, the slider pin shows a position number, not the text of the option. I found this closed issue on the slider-entity-row github page.

Apparently, it’s a limitation of the paper-slider element the card is built on. :frowning:

Is there a way to trigger another action when the slider position has been used to change the position? I have in mind something similar to “multi_calls:” under tap_action of custom:button-card?

For example, I want to turn off one of the automation (the one that drives the shutters up and down automatically) as soon as the user changes the position using the slider. Another automation that would trigger when position changes is clearly not an option since the position can also be changed by another automation and not strictly manually by the user.

after more than 1 year of happiness with slider-entity-row, I got a strange issue after this month HA update.
On my client Mac computer everything continue to work fine (HA is on Rpi 4+ssd), but on my android phone I got an alert "custom element doesn’t exist: slider-entity-row " for all my 5 roller shutters.
I don’t know where to start to the diagnostic … phone-HA server ???

help please !!!

EDIT: it was an HACS issue, old version, delete manually HACS (it was too old to update), then reinstall it. (Bienu shelly script and slider-entity-row was preserved), then update slider-entity-row to latest version.

it seem it was still working on the Mac before until the cache was cleared.

I was using the slider-entity-row to add a slider for my ceiling fans. Today I noticed they were all gone and found this issue:

Anyone know if this will be fixed or when?
