Measure how long switch is pressed

(Stephanschulz) #1

i have a GE switch.
I was wondering if it is possible to measure how long it is pressed.

i want to use the switch to turn off the alarm.
i saw the double tap example but found my kids mess with the switch too much and double tap it by accident.
so i thought holding down or up the switch for 5 seconds might be a better work around.

but is there an event for switch pressed and switch released, for either the ON or OFF position?

hi @stephanschulz I don’t believe so. I don’t think the switches will send push and held events. In-fact the double tap only works if its in within direct range of the hub and not paired through any routers.

thats for the reply.

what other strategies are there to get a alarm disable trigger, other then the phone app?
