Input_select now working

hassio 0.62.1 need help with input select. I have tried everything from leaving out the initial to including “default” as the initial to setting initial to one of the two bottom themes.

2018-02-01 16:00:24 ERROR (MainThread) [homeassistant.config] Invalid config for [input_select]: initial state “default” is not part of the options: -default -solarized -darkcyan -midnight -darkorange for dictionary value @ data[‘input_select’][‘hass_themes’]. Got OrderedDict([(‘name’, ‘Theme Names’), (‘options’, ‘-default -solarized -darkcyan -midnight -darkorange’), (‘initial’, ‘default’), (‘icon’, ‘mdi:theme-light-dark’)]). (See /config/configuration.yaml, line 249). Please check the docs at

here is my input_select element.

name: Theme Names
initial: default
icon: mdi:theme-light-dark
any help would be appreciated.


You need a space between the hyphens and the names.

That was real dumb. Thanks
