Automation error triggered when this is added

HI All, I’m trying to follow a tutorial on hackster for a doorbell using Raspberry pi 3B. however i get this error

2020-06-10 15:56:48 ERROR (SyncWorker_0) [homeassistant.util.yaml.loader] mapping values are not allowed here

The only thing it refers too is the trigger function which i can’t seem to figure out what is wrong as it looks fine from reading the documentation on home assistant triggers.

Here is my config.yaml file

Any help would be awesome thank you in advance.


You already have a scripts.yaml file. All scripts need to go in that file.


inside your scripts.yaml file. Make sure your spacing is correct. Seems like you aren’t keepign the same spacing count for each indentation. I recommend using 2 spaces for each indentation level.

You also have the option of doing this through the UI.

Configuration -> Scripts -> little + button in lower right corner.


Customizations go inside the customization section. That section is in the home assistant section. But, it’s much easier to do from the UI.

Configuration -> Customizations -> Choose the entity -> Adjust the property in question.

Thank you that worked :slight_smile:
