Amazon dash button and presence grace period
« on: October 31, 2016, 07:52:09 pm »
I bought an Amazon dash button so that I could use it as a switch. Basically when I push the button I want to say, turn on a light then 30 min later have it turn off. So I set the grace period for 30 minutes thinking that it would become inactive then. I was wrong the light turns off with in a few seconds. Is there anyway that has been come up with to do something like this?

Dash Buttons go inactive pretty quick by design. The grace period really just is a timeout if the Almond does not see a device go away otherwise. What you could do is:
IF Light = Off And Dash = Active THEN Light = On And Delay 30min Light = Off

That will turn it on if it was not already then turn it off automatically after 30min.

Thank you for the reply. The delay command got moved in the last update and I thought it was removed. I have found it now.
