Write automation listening to knx group address to control shutters (cover)

I wrote an automation (script) to control two shutters by a knx group adress signal
if rolladen_straße.close() command is set (from knx or homassistant ui)
rolladen_straße_T.close() (first shutter) shout be executed, then after 1s
rolladen_straße_N.close() (second shutter should be executed

the script itself works, but not the “trigger”

this is the script:

id: '1642348490881'
  alias: Rolladen Straße (close)
  description: ''
  - platform: state
    entity_id: cover.rolladen_strasse
    to: close
  condition: []
  - service: cover.close_cover
      entity_id: cover.rolladen_strasse_t
  - delay:
      hours: 0
      minutes: 0
      seconds: 1
      milliseconds: 0
  - service: cover.close_cover
      entity_id: cover.rolladen_strasse_n
  mode: single
- id: '1642348599922'

Who can help?

You need to make sure you get the state exactly correct. Look in developer tools / states. You should also quote your states so that they are interpreted as strings not boolean values (off is not the same as 'off')

  - platform: state
    entity_id: cover.rolladen_strasse
    to: 'closed'

Note that this trigger won’t occur until your first shutter has closed completely.

If you want to trigger when the ‘close’ command is sent to the first shutter you probably need an event trigger, not a state trigger. I have no idea what this event is. Probably something along these lines: Using events to trigger actions - #12 by Wouter1

That would probably be the correct event, but the key names have changed slightly since that post (eg. address is destination now). See KNX - Home Assistant

thanks for the hint. it didnt solve the issue.

Using an event trigger didn’t solve the issue?

sorry - I mixed up the posts.
quoting - ‘closed’ does not fix the issues.
I have to check the events…

this page was very helpfull
