I have mentioned it a few times in other thread so after some prompting from @CentralCommand here it is.
Even with the
device_tracker.see service, I have often wondered WTH is there not a device tracker template? I have been around long enough to understand the history and complexity around the device tracker domain, so I guess I had gotten past my WTH moment after considering it.
A device tracker template advantage is giving users the flexibility to create device trackers from other sources like input booleans, binary sensors, etc… While you can do this with the
device_tracker.see service and some templated automations it’s not very apparent at first glance, even with this, I device tracker template would be wonderful!
