How do you match an array in an automation trigger

I’m trying to trigger based on the RGB value of a color change event. I can look at the RGB values of the entity for the light however the string input on the automation doesn’t match the array value. Is there a standard? eg the following trigger doesn’t match the proceeding event. I’ve tried making it an array with no success. I’m not sure where in the docs to look.

Thanks

i’m not positive if it’s 100% true always, but at least a good starting place is that if you want to trigger on an attribute, use the format you’d use to set that attribute.

so with that in mind, use this doc:

If that doesn’t work, you could fall back to a template trigger:

  - platform: template
    value_template: "{{ state_attr('light.moon_light', 'rgb_color') == [255, 4, 10] }}"
