Areas and Device Registry

Since v0.87 of Home Assistant there is a notion of Areas in the Device registry. hass-cli lets
you list devices and areas and assign areas to devices.

Listing devices and areas works similar to list Entities.

You can create and delete areas:

.. code:: bash
$ hass-cli area delete "Old Shed"
- id: 1
type: result
success: true
result: success
$ hass-cli area create "New Shed"
- id: 1
type: result
success: true
area_id: cdd09a80f03a4cc59d2943053c0414c0
name: New Shed
You can assign area to a specific device. Here the Kitchen
area gets assigned to device named "Cupboard Light".

.. code:: bash
$ hass-cli device assign Kitchen "Cupboard Light"
Besides assigning individual devices you can assign in bulk:

.. code:: bash
$ hass-cli device assign Kitchen --match "Kitchen Light"
The above line will assign Kitchen area to all devices with substring "Kitchen Light".

You can also combine individual and matched devices in one line:

.. code:: bash
$ hass-cli device assign Kitchen --match "Kitchen Light" eab9930f8652408882cc8cb604651c60 Cupboard
Above will assign area named "Kitchen" to all devices having substring "Kitchen Light" and to
specific area with id "eab9930..." or named "Cupboard".


You can subscribe and watch all or a specific event type using `event watch`.

.. code:: bash
$ hass-cli event watch
This will watch for all event types, you can limit to a specific event type
by specifying it as an argument:

.. code:: bash
$ hass-cli event watch deconz_event
