Timer.finished not firing

I know this is a common question but even reading though the Google results I can’t see what I’m missing here.

After having a wisdom tooth taken out I tried to set up this automation to remind me when I could take my next round of painkillers. But the automation never triggers.

alias: Medication alert
description: ""
  - platform: event
    event_type: timer.finished
      entity id: timer.ibuprofen
condition: []
  - device_id:  ..... 
    domain: mobile_app
    type: notify
    message: 6 hours 
    title: Pain Killers
mode: single

It’s entity_id (with underscore)

Wow :man_facepalming:

That was a copy paste from one of the supposedly working solutions I found.

But goes to show what fresh eyes can do.

That’s it tested and working now thank you
