I am trying to setup a boolean sensor to track the state of a google calendar event. In my configuration.yaml I have defined the following binary sensor:
mqtt: binary_sensor: name: "PelletStoveCalendar" state_topic: "/home/Living Room/PelletStoveCalendar"
If I go to the MQTT integration and subscribe to the topic “/home/Living Room/PelletStoveCalendar” I can see the value change between “on” and “off” as I expect it to:
Message 1 received on /home/Living Room/PelletStoveCalendar at 10:29 AM: off QoS: 0 - Retain: false Message 0 received on /home/Living Room/PelletStoveCalendar at 10:29 AM: on QoS: 0 - Retain: true
In the developer tools states table the value is always unknown:
PelletStoveCalendar unknown friendly_name: PelletStoveCalendar
I have other mqtt sensors that are not binary that are working correctly so I am not sure why this one is not,.
I am running HA 2022.11.1 in a Docker container.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
