Status LED Light¶
status_led light platform allows to share a single LED for indicating the status of
the device (when on error/warning state) or as binary light (when on OK state).
This is useful for devices with only one LED available.
You can also use a binary Output Component.
When the device is on error/warning state, the function of
status_led will take precedence and control the blinking of the LED.
When the device is in OK state, the LED will be restored to the state of the
binary light function and can be controlled as such.
# Example configuration entry light: - platform: status_led name: "Switch state" pin: GPIO2
When using this platform the high level
status_led component should not be included (at least over the same pin),
as its functionality is directly provided by this platform.
The only difference is that the platform won’t be loaded in OTA safe mode, while the component would be.
name (Optional, string): The name of the light.
id (Optional, ID): Manually specify the ID used for code generation.
pin (Optional, Pin Schema): The GPIO pin to operate the LED on.
effects (Optional, list): A list of light effects to use for this light, though binary lights only support very few of them.
All other options from Light.
If your Status LED is in an active-LOW mode (such as with the D1 Mini ESP8266 boards), use the
inverted option of the Pin Schema:
pin: number: GPIO2 inverted: true
