Decimal RF codes

ive recently moved all my nodes from openmqtt gateway to ESPhome, the last hurdle is 1 RF power socket and 3 RF light switches, i cant get the receiver attached to a different node to pick up the transmitted code (the RF codes from my door contacts are picked up fine) i thought i may have fried the transmitter at first but i connected to a PI i have laying around and it works just fine, picked up by the receiver and controls the RF switches and sockets.

When i used this setup with Openmqtt gateway i could use the 7 digit decimal code but i understand thats not possible with ESPhome and I have to use the binary.

My code is below, this is just a test but the binary code is correct as I have the original RF remote for that device.

      - remote_transmitter.transmit_rc_switch_raw:
          code: '000101010101010111000011'
          protocol: 7
      - remote_transmitter.transmit_rc_switch_raw:
          code: '000101010101010111001100'
          protocol: 7

i’m basically asking if there is a way to send the decimal code?
