I’m looking to create a rule, that sends a command to a DIFFERENT item after 2/3/X minutes. I guess its the opposite of the existing “expire after” metadata, perhaps “Delay”.
I’m only just heading down this rabbit hole, so there’s probably already a snippet of code available on the forums that will get me there, but this wouldn’t be as native as a metadata option. Would this be feasible/suitable for consideration?
My use case is, turn on a power socket (Item == Switch), and then after X minutes “delay”, send a command to a different power socket (Item == Switch).
I was actually hoping I could fiddle this with the existing expire meta, but I can’t choose A N Other item to send the command to, suggesting the expire meta is purely to revert a one time command.
