How do I add a delay from a button?


#1

I have added the Aeotec 4 button keyfob to my SmartThings system to arm my alarm.

Is there a way to add a delay to the routine? I need to allow the user to get away before the system arms.

There are ways, but it depends on exactly what “the system arms” means in your setup.

Are you using the standard smartthings Samsung hub? Or the SmartThings/ADT security panel?

I’m going to assume it’s the standard Herb, in which case, see the following thread (this is a clickable link)

It’s just a standard ST hub.

Thanks for the link. Wow that’s a complex thing just to add a 2 minute delay to a button press. I thought I’d just missed a simple option in the ST routine. I guess not.

You could always just add a delay into the device handler code for the required button press.
