An alternative way to achieve this is to place a weblink in a Lovelace entities card.

- type: entities
  show_header_toggle: false
    - type: weblink
      url: /states
      name: "States"
      icon: mdi:home-assistant

WARNING: As of Home Assistant version 0.84 the method below no longer works.


Sometimes you need to access the Home Assistant states page (old UI) and when you have Lovelace as the default UI you have to type it in the address bar. Here is an easier way to access it.

Add the following code to your configuration.yaml file and restart Home Assistant.

IMPORTANT: Make sure you have the correct value in url:.

    title: "States"
    icon: mdi:home-assistant
    url: http://<your_home_assistant_url>/states

Now you can access the states page with just one click.
