Code not working for "template sensor"


I am trying to make my first coded sensor in configuration.yaml and it is not going very well. I would like to make a sensor showing the difference between two temperature sensors.

Attached is a picture of my code and the error message. Hope to get some help to make the code work.

I think your line alignment is a bit off. It should be something like:

  - binary_sensor:
      - name: test
        device_class: door
        state: >
            {% if is_state('input_boolean.test', 'off') %}
            {% elif is_state('input_boolean.test', 'on') %}
            {% endif %}

Please read the forum category descriptions. This is not a feature request. Moved.

Also please do not post pictures of text. Post correctly formatted configuration text.

Copy the code in file editor, then paste it into your post as preformatted text (</> in the toolbar). :slightly_smiling_face:
