    This looks perfect. Thanks!

    Simplest way to do it would be to turn the light on then add a second "then" step of wait for X number of minutes. Then add a 3rd "then " step to turn light off.

    There are a lot of ways to accomplish this with events and I'm sure you will get several options here. One option I use is to turn off if there has been no motion for X minutes/seconds. See event below.

    started a topic Turn on a light for x minutes (then turn off)

    Turn on a light for x minutes (then turn off)

    Is there a way to create an event that turns on a Z-Wave device for a time interval, then turns it off? For example, simulate an occupancy sensor light switch, or turn on a space heater for 20 minutes then turn it off, etc? I'm trying to avoid using external things like IFTTT or NodeRed, but I am open to suggestions.

    I tried to create an even to turn on a HS wall switch, but I didn't see a "for this time interval" or 'wait this long then turn off" scenario.
Working...
