I thought this would be straightforward but I’m stumped. I have ST that controls lights in my backyard and front yard. I’ve installed a Night Owl surveillance system that detects motion and issues an email to IFTTT when a camera detects motion in the evening. IFTTT issues a turn on command via the SmartThings channel to turn on the backyard lights, flawlessly.
Now how do I program Smartthings to turn the light off after a period of time. I’ve looked around and all the solutions require a trigger. I could brute force it and have a routine that triggers every hour to turn off the outdoor lights, but that would be a lot of routines, doubled by the use of front and backyard lights.
Suggestions would be very welcome.
