Been looking for a simple solution to place a simple pause or delay in a flow where a question is asked.
The flow is as follows: When I get home I am detected by SmartPresence. Then Homey asks me (immediately, even before my door is opened) if Homey should turn on the TV with my Harmony Hub.
This works great but I would like to add a simple delay when the question is asked by homey. It should wait around 10 seconds before asking the question when I enter my home. I can’t enter a delay on a question speech card like we can with many other cards.
How do you guys add delays in Homey?
I dont have a Homey yet but i have a idea. With the precence detection you start only a timer of 10 seconds. I don’t no if it is possible but you trigger the flow when this timer ends… But i don’t no if it is possible to use te ending of een timer as a trigger of a flow.
Delays can only be set on actions so you should make two flows:
- when you come home and time is after 19.30 and movement is on start flow2 with 10sec delay
- when this flow is started and ask question then do the rest
Ok, will try that. Thought there should have been a simpler solution to just wait a few secs but of this works it works
Thanks for the input guys.
