    30 Second Delay

    How can I set up an event with conditions "device on or off" but I need it to wait 30 seconds before checking the condition? The event is triggered from Insteon Door Sensor

    You can trigger a delayed event that checks the condition.

      Thanks. That I know and the condition is already setup. My question is how do I make the event wait 30 sec. before checking the condition?

        you probably need two events. one to start an event with a 30sec delay after the On or Off, then a second action to call the second event with the condition you want to check.

        you might get other suggestions in the hs general forum.

          I thought about that solution as well, but correct me if I'm wrong, when you tell an event to run another event, does it not bypass the conditions on the second event and just run the actions?

            In HS3 there is an advanced option (click airplane) to display the option which requires the conditions to be tested before the second event runs. check the box!

              if this doesn't do it, please explain what you are trying to do; there is probably another way

                Well OK! I never knew that was there! (actually I never had a need to run an event from an event in HS3 before , very useful!)

                  That might work, but I am still on 2.0

                      It's the same thing. Create an event that is manual with conditions. Then do run event with 30 second delay from the first event. Switch to advanced view if that is not already selected, then put a check in the box for "<input class="formcheckbox" checked="" value="TRUE" name="evCheckConditions" type="checkbox"> Run Only If Conditions are TRUE (Applies to all RUN EVENT actions in this event.)"
