Automation Delays in new V3 app?

Am I correct that in the new V3 app, an automation action can be delayed for a device action, but not for a notification?

So that in the following all the notification would be sent immediately, but the action would not occur for one hour?

Also, if I turned the trigger device off after a few minutes, does that then cancel the action in the automation?

Thanks! :sunglasses:


that is correct. And changing the trigger device does not affect the action at all. It’s a plain wait timer.

Ok, I’ve added a HowTo article listing four different ways this can be done for the new V3 app, although they all require custom code of some kind.
