Anyway to increase delay time to more than 300 seconds?
« on: December 08, 2016, 08:18:44 pm »
I was wondering if anyone has found a work around or found a way to increase the delay to more than 5 minutes.

Thanks!

Not really. We discussed that possible a rule like Motion detected then light on, then wait 300 light on, then wait 300 light on, then wait 300 light off. Someone tested and said they got 10 minutes out of it.

I got 15min out of this rule... Of course you need something else to trigger it because it blinked off and immediately turned on again. The attachment shows the THEN portion.
IF Link1 (a GE Link bulb) is OFF THEN Link1 ON, delay 300 seconds Link1 ON, delay 300 seconds Link1 ON, delay 300 seconds, Link 1 OFF

Obviously you would want something more like:
IF Link1 is OFF AND Button1 is ON THEN...

It may be a workaround, but it did work.
