Automation to turn on light only if light is OFF, then turn light off after 1 minute?

Hi guys,

I did a search and couldn’t find an answer to my problem

I currently have an automation set up so that motion caught on my Ring Doorbell will trigger my outside lights to turn on and then turn off when motion stops

The problem is that I set a rule so that the lights turn on ONLY when they are off.
This is because sometimes I want to leave the outside lights on (when we are expecting guests over etc) and I don’t want a motion event to turn them off.

From what I understand this rule is preventing the light to turn off when motion stops?

Is there a workaround to this problem?

Many thanks in advance!
