Hi, I have had Smartthings for a little over a year now and I love it.
I was hoping someone may be able to tell me how to set something up in Smartthings.
I just learned how to do device handlers so I am not really too good on complex stuff.
I do sandblasting and my sand is reclaimed in a cyclone dust collector and I turn a ball valve to drain the sand into a bucket. I use Alexa to set a timer for 5 minutes then when I hear the timer I walk over and close the valve. If (when) I forget the sand over fills my bucket and makes a big mess.
I would like to buy a Motor driven ball valve and plug it into a smart switch and tell Alexa to turn on ball valve.
So my question is…is there a way to have Alexa turn on the ball valve (switch) and then shut off after a set amount of time?
I looked in the App but cannot find anything.
