Z-Wave Thermostat Automation not working

I am a new HA user coming from Homeseer after about 10 years.
I am trying to create an automation to monitor the operating state of my thermostat to graph A/C on times and Heat On times.

From what I am seeing above, this should work. For some reason the automation doesn’t like the 2-66-0-x state.
I have tried everything that I can think of plus a multitude of searches and cannot find a reason why it says it is malformed.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Thank you!

Here is the YAML Config

Here is the info from Z-Wave JS UI showing the parameter.

If your thermostat has a climate entity, the operating state values are automatically stored and can be graphed.

The blue bars in the above graph are the AC on times. If you want to sum or perform other actions on the times, you’ll need to create a Template sensor.

The existing entities for your thermostat likely have the data you want, and an automation of Z-Wave-JS is likely unneeded.

That said, if you want to get the low level event, you need an event trigger, not a device trigger. Something like this:

  - platform: event
    event_type: zwave_js_notification
      command_class: 111
      node_id: 166
      event_type: 6

Thank you so much! That is exactly what I was looking for.
I was totally unaware of the built in graphing so that should same me a lot of work.
Thank you again!
