Hi folks, I’ve got a SmartThings hub v2 in the mail but I’m getting started early…
Is there a reliable and convenient way to introduce sub-minute delays into SmartApps? I am hoping to build a security system where when motion is detected a warning strobe or sound plays for ~10 seconds before triggering a full alarm and notification. I don’t want to use the scheduler since (1) I don’t trust it to be reliable, given the issues it’s apparently had and (2) it’s precision is in the minute range and I don’t want to give a potential intruder much time before the alarm goes off.
I am also open to recommendations for less-convenient workarounds, such as calling a local REST service which waits then calls into a Web Services SmartApp.
Either way, reliability is important here. Hopefully I’m not going with the wrong platform?
