Home Assistant automation

HI there, Is someone able to explain to me how to integrate a Home Assistant automation for a simple toggle switch (Shelly plug). I am especially lost on what the trigger ("When", see screenshot) should be for the Homarr widget in HA. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi @pd0lpu , you must configure this inside Homarr. The trigger here can be left empty - Homarr itself will trigger and not Home Assistant. You need to copy the automation ID and paste it to the automation ID field in the widget. https://github.com/ajnart/homarr/pull/2015 will also significantly improve the handling of generic switches (eg lights, fans, shelly switches, ...)....
