Ability to issue delayed or timed actuations?

Adam Lewis 1 year ago in Panels (dashboards) • updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 1 year ago 2

I would love a way to delay the "clicking" of a tile by a certain amount time. For example, sometimes I need to run a device for 30 minutes. Not on a schedule or anything, just for 30 minutes. I wish I could delay the clicking of the tile for 30 minutes so that I could turn the device on, set the 30-minute timer, and be done. As it is now I have to come back in 30 minutes and turn the device off.

Adam, this could be easily done natively with "Smart Lighting" (SmartThings SmartApp). There's a feature there to turn off devices after a certain timeout.

In order to do this, you would have to create a routine or button and use webCoRE  with SmartThings. I currently have a button that changes my status from Arm to Disarm for 7 minutes and then it rearms itself after the 7 minutes.
