Variable value changes

i’m using

my question is everytime home assistant restarts, the value of the variable goes back to 'Unknown" This is my variable config:

name: ‘MainDoorLastUpdate’
icon: mdi:door-closed
restore: true

Depending on what version you are using, that component might not be compatible anymore.

I’m using HA v0.104.x any other variable component options?

I think he meant that maybe the custom integration isn’t compatible with HA anymore.

To answer your question, HA has several built-in “variables”: input_text, input_number, input_boolean, input_select and input_datetime. And they all save/restore across restarts.
