Error with interpreting the state of a command line cover

I have a command line cover defined as shown below:

  platform: command_line
        command_close: "curl --retry 3"
        command_open: "curl --retry 3"
        command_state: curl --retry 3"    
        friendly_name: Velux Blind
        command_timeout: 120
        value_template: ‘{{ 0 }}’

When calling this blind from Google Home, two things happen:

  1. The action completes successfully
  2. Having completed successfully, google announces “sorry, that mode is not available for velux blind”

Checking the HA logs, I see the failure seems to be when calling command_state, with this in the logs:

ValueError: invalid literal for int() with base 10: '‘0’'

The command in question returns the character 0 or 1 when called

Any idea how I can get around this…?

Those quotes look wrong, was it a copy-paste from a website by chance? See if this changes anything:

value_template: "{{ 0 }}"

Also, is the command state really supposed to be ststus and not status?

Same Problem for me. Can’t figure out how to get the Status of the Cover via conmand line.

Sorry for the delay in replying!

The value_template change didn’t seem to affect the error received
However, on investigation the value_template was not needed at all

Removing it entirely, and merely leaving the command_open, command_close, and command_status (yes, that was a typo in the opriginal post!) and all seems to work fine, including status!
