If i switch on remotely, it would be great if i can set a timer when the device switch off automatically (for example after 10 sec/min/hour).
I tried to address this shortcoming with the Facebook support, but this was to complicated for them to understand.
SO I THINK i MADE A MISTAKE OF PURCHASING SONOFF. THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND THE FIRST THINGS ABOUT HOME AUTOMATION.
But I can schedule an on/off action at a certain date next year. I can't even imagine why I need that.
I also need this feature.
I use SONOFF® S20 for IR Panel for heating and if someone neead more heat he can press button
but then I want that the device power off after 1 hour or something that I can setup.
The same can be used for lights, watering,...
This is MUST FEATURE that device is usable...
As per my other comment, another system I have can do this.
If *front door* opens between 18:00 - 06:00, then switch on *lamp* for 30 seconds after *front door* closes.
This is real, usable rule with conditions and timing.
Can't the countdown timer be set permanently, I have sensors that will turn my lights on but I want them in specific scenario's to turn off after 10 to 15min. The countdown timer would do this but it will only run once off, the manually started again, that is frustrating as hell.
The other issue is no scheduling ability to disable sensors without disabling the Sonoff bridge using smart power adapter, very limiting, as then you need a bridge for sensors and one for other RF devices, and if you want to separate sensors for specific scenario's you will need another bridge and smart power adapter.
Need courtesy lights, PIR trigger via RF bridge, switches on some lights, all doable, then i need the light to auto switch off after 5 minutes, every time, any suggestions?
Hi, you can achieve this by configuring a loop timer with "start action" off. Then you set the "after" setting to the desired time and the "action" to off and then enable
Minimum time and granularity is 1 minute, Maximum time is 23hs 59 min
Hope this helps
