If a routine does not have the "local" indicator

Hello, I have a rule (routine) that if a switch is on for 45 mins, turn it off and send a notification. If I remove the “notification”, parts it has the indicator to process locally. If I add a “cloud” required component, does the entire rule process in the cloud or only the bit that needs cloud services (notifications, I think in this case)?

Would it be better to simply create a second rule that triggers when the device turns off to send my notification? Then the primary rule will be “local” and the notification cloud only?

Yes, exactly as you suspect.

Thanks, good to know I can depend on that indicator and think of other “follow-on” rules that are triggered to process in the cloud as needed.
