Home Assistant Notifications keep failing

Alright, so I have a notification set to turn the LEDs on my switch to “chase” when my garage door is open. It works great, most of the time. Then I get errors…If I reboot my Home Assistant rpi4, everything is fine for a few days and then it happens again…any ideas on what is causing the issue?

here is my log:

The above exception was the direct cause of the following exception:

Post up your yaml for the automation.
And when you do, hit the gear icon and select perforrated text so it keeps it’s formatting.

I believe your issue may be right here. The parameter is numeric, but by putting in quotes you have it send as text.

If that’s not it, I’m not seeing any other glaring issues.


Genius! I totally missed that! Thank you! All fixed!
