How much do you know about the DELAY option in “Scene > Add a scene > Then”?
Recently we noticed some users are not familiar with how it works. Now, let’s figure it out with two examples.

e.g. 1 Any time when you enter the basement, you hope the light is auto on. You also wish the light can be auto off after x min. You can count on the steps in Pic 1 to create this scene.

e.g. 2 When you wake up at sunrise, you hope the bedroom lights is scheduled to be on, also, after x min, your bedroom air conditioner can be auto off. Check out how to create such a scene in Pic 2.

Don’t hesitate to share if you created others scenes with Delay. Let more users know your creativity!

I have never been able to use an IF as well as an action on the same device.

If light is on, then turn light off. Not able to do this.

Delay is also mysterious.

If time is 9:00 then waterpump ON
delay 59min
Waterpump OFF
delay 59min
Waterpump ON
Delay 59min
Waterpump OFF

It doesn’t work. 9am pump goes on, and stays on until I turn it off
