# Event Nodes

# Available to all event nodes

Events: all, events: state, trigger: state, and poll state nodes will have the option to be exposed to Home Assistant, and when enabled, it will show up in Home Assistant as a switch. Turning on and off these switches will disable/enable the nodes in Node-RED. This should help people who find themselves having to make input_booleans in HA to enable/disable flows.

# Trigger an exposed event node from a service call nodered.trigger

Event nodes that are triggered by a service call will have their status color blue when skip_condition is true and when false it will stay green with the text (triggered) appended after the state in the status text.

Data properties of the service call:

entity_id

The only data property of the service call that is required is an entity_id of the switch that is associated with a node in NR.

trigger_entity_id

Will be the entity that triggers the node. It is optional and only required if the node entity filter is not set to exact.

skip_condition

It can be used when you don't want the conditionals of the node to be check and just have it pass the entity through. Defaults to false

For the trigger: state node custom output will not be evaluated.

output_path

When skip_condition is true this allows you to choose which output to send the message through. Defaults to true the top output
