Critial switch schedule

Thought I’d throw this out there…
I’ve been looking for a way to provide a safety when scheduling a high priority switch in case an ‘on’ trigger is missed due to power or connectivity problems. What I thought of is that the schedule would send an ‘on’ command, and then during the entire scheduled ‘on’ period a ‘runEvery30Minutes(handlerMethod)’ could run. Any thoughts on this?

You could do something like this with Rule Machine. There is an example I posted here: Fun with Rules! that shows a simple looping mechanism using a virtual switch to help. You can pick the periodicity to be whatever, and you can kill the whole loop if the light actually is on (not in that example, but easy to do). That’s probably better than banging away at it no matter what.
