    I think it goes like this;

    Insert a wait in an event, everything below the wait command in the event is done after the time period you have given in the wait section.

    Insert a delay in a device, the event looks at the delay and creates a delayed event (which can be removed by the remove delayed device action) that expires in that time period to do whatever you say. The event carries on processing anything below it.

    I don't think you can remove anything with the wait command, but you can removed the delayed device actions using the actions from the events.

    HomeSeer:Events:Wait or Delay?

    Sorry for the rather basic question. There appear to be 2 ways to insert a delay within the processing of an event. You can add in a Wait as a separate step, or a Delay as part of a Device Action. Are there any recommendations as to when to use either one? In particular, is there any difference when trying to cancel events / delayed device actions?

    Thanks,
    Nick.
