Switch smartthings power outlet on for 5 seconds?


(Sarah Archer) #1

Hi all. I have an electronic door release which I am operating through a smartthings power outlet. I would really like to have some sort of automation in place which would switch the outlet on for 5 seconds and then off again. I have read instances where people have adapted device handlers to allow this to happen but knowing very little (Ok, literally nothing :slight_smile: ) about device handlers I’m afraid I just don’t know where to start. I was hoping some of you far more knowledgeable folks could point me in the right direction? Many thanks in advance. :slight_smile:

Webcore can do this. Just know that with that small of a time frame it will end up being 3-15 seconds.

On top of what @prjct92eh2 says above. I also have a smart lighting instance to turn off after 1 minute if ON as well just as a backup incase webcore doesn’t turn it back off.
