This has been mentioned in comments elsewhere, but thought I’d make sure it got its own devoted thread.
I’d like to be able to click on any entity, and add a tag or a label to it via the UI. (Behind the scenes this would just be dynamically creating a
- Tag all of your automations that create noise (servo blinds, for example). Then call
group.noisyto make a “Quiet mode” for your house
- Go to Automations list and filter on “noisy” and “high power” to see only those automations.
- Tag every entity that supports a certain “feature” you’ve made (e.g. “Bedroom Nightlight”). Now you can search the “States” view for “Nightlight” to see all the entities involved.
Again, much of this is doable today using
groups. But it’s much more friction to open YAML and manually add entity_ids than it is to browse for entities in the UI and add tags.
