WLED preset effects in home assistant automations 2024.5

I have a WLED preset called Police which flashes my addressable RGB strip in red and blue. I want to use it in home assistant automation but dont seems to be able to call it.

How do I call specific effect form WLED into Home Assistant automation in 2024.5

This may be what the wLED patch was in 2024.5.5

Because that is actually not a preset but a select entity. It will be

select.<name of wled light>_preset

Change the select entity to activate the preset.

I have no idea what you mean.

The light is (light.office_desk_led)
The preset is (Police)

I tried:


nothing works. Can you be a bit more descriptive? Give an actual example please.

I have no idea what patch and specifics you are referring too. Please abbreviate!

Have you tried this approach?

Press the round icon next to preset. You get this page

Click the gear icon

Use that entity id

Call the service

service: select.select_option
  entity_id: select.front_preset
  option: Police

This worked, thank you @Jorggs

Thank you everyone, this community forum has been awesome. Even newbies like me can do a lot of cool things without the knowledge we need, because of nice people like you all!

Compared to 2 years ago when I started I feel like PRO now :)))) just kidding!
