Auto power off function would be great.

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).

Or modify the self-locking smart switch, so that the user can change the self-locking time in a. rage between 500ms up to 24 hours instead of the. fixed 1 second puls. That. would make the self-locking smart switch much more flexible regards Michael
There is no automatic off rigged by on.
I just like to have my bathroom light to turn off 15 minutes after someone touch the wall switch (and turn it on). IT CANT BE DONE, UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!!!!!

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.

What is the name of the other systems can do switch on lamps for 30 secounds ....

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

Thank you Mario!
Good idea but wall switches don’t have loop timer. I use Ewelink, IFTTT and Stringify servers to switch off lights after specific time delay after switching ON.

Stringify is not available in my country :(

Hi Mario

I Don't find the way to do what you propose. 

what I want is very simple.

If device turn to ON then auto stop after 2hours...

this is to avoid kids bedroom to stay on all day !

thank you for your help

I would like the same thing with the Sonoff POW R2

Hey Itead-Team, why don't you add an "always repeat" or "switch once" soft switch to the timer settings of Sonoff units? All problems would be solved. The user can choose, if the switch shall work once after the timer counts to zero or if it shall start the countdown automatically after every manual, temperatur or humidy switching action. That would give the units a maximum of flexibility. Regards from Germany Michael
