Conditional Card

The Conditional card displays another card based on entity states.

Note: Conditions with more than one entity are treated as an ‘and’ condition. This means that for the card to show, all entities must meet the state requirements set.

To add the Conditional card to your user interface, click the menu (three dots at the top right of the screen) and then Edit Dashboard. Click the Add Card button in the bottom right corner and select from the card picker. Note that while editing the dashboard, the card will always be shown, so be sure to exit editing mode to test the conditions.

All options for this card can be configured via the user interface.
