Additional/missing automation options


I’m hoping I missed this and someone here can point me in the right direction. If not I hope to see these in the future. I have set up a routine to turn on lights when a door opens. I would like to only have this routine work at night (between sunset and sunrise), and to only activate for a set amount of time (shut off after 10 minutes). Any ideas how to set up these additional rules?
I see that you can set times, but they just turn the lights on after sunset, not operate the rule after sunset.

Try using CoRE (for everything you can possibly think of):


Just to update, I did find a “SmartApp” to add to my hub that accomplished the exact thing that I wanted. Once you log in the hub look for the smart app called “5 minute delay”. It does exactly want I wanted and once I added a sunset to sunrise mode it now works only at night. It is a perfect solution for my situation.
