Not able to use an entity from input_select to call light_on service

I have an input_select where I added a few light entities, i am getting an error while making a call like this

service: light.turn_on
  entity_id: "{{ states('input_select.basement_remote_active_entity') }}" 

The error message received is below

Failed to call service light.turn_on. Template rendered invalid entity IDs: unknown

Here is my input_select

Can someone please let me know what I am doing wrong here?

remote might be what you intended but is NOT what you called the input_select. Look again, that’s an r not a t :wink:

Oh no! I assumed it had just been minutes. Sorry about that.
