i have GE 12722 and 12733 switches installed on stairs. I want to have the lights to turn off after i turned them on…
so i am going upstairs, (turn on lights) after i get to the top of the stairs (20 sec later) I want that same light to turn off automatically after a set amount of time
any help would be appreciated and thanks in advance!
As with many cases, smartthings is very powerful, but not always very intuitive.
You can use the official smart lighting feature to set up a virtual timer for a light, but you also need to create a virtual switch to act as that timer. There is a how to article in the community – created wiki with the instructions:
You could also definitely use core if you want. Core is a very sophisticated rules engine created by the community. But it does require that you install custom code and it may be overkill if you just need a timer for a couple of lights.
