Interval Component

This component allows you to run actions at fixed time intervals. For example, if you want to toggle a switch every minute, you can use this component. Please note that it’s possible to achieve the same thing with the time.on_time trigger, but this technique is more light-weight and user-friendly.

# Example configuration entry
  - interval: 1min
      - switch.toggle: relay_1

If a startup delay is configured, the first execution of the actions will not occur before at least that time after boot.

Configuration variables:

  • interval (Required, Time): The interval to execute the action with.

  • startup_delay (Optional, Time): An optional startup delay - defaults to zero.

  • then (Required, Action): The action to perform.
