Temperature control & dog feeding alerts

I’m very new to all this so please forgive me if these topics have been covered in detail before.

I want to set up 2 scenarios. The first being to monitor the temperature of the freezer and send an alert when it goes above a certain temperature for longer than 5 minutes.

The 2nd thing I’d like to do is to get an alert if the dog’s food box hasn’t been opened between certain times in the evening.

I’ve got a multi sensor, a motion sensor and a Presence sensor which I’d like to make use of if possible. They’re all Smartthings. If I need anything different please could you advice me. As I said I’m very new to this but looking forward to building up my smart home.

Both of those are considered complex rules because of the secondary filters…

In other words, it would be easy to get an alert when the temperature went above a certain number, but once you want to add “above a certain number for at least five minutes“ it becomes a complex rule.

Similarly, “has not been opened“ requires a more complex rule than just “is opened.“

It’s definitely possible in smartthings, but The set up is a little trickier.
