Blink light every 2 seconds for 15 seconds

Hi,

I have a light which I would like to blink (on/off) for 15 seconds.
Which would it be the best way to do it?

Thanks
Marco

There are several ways, but one would be to create schedule which runs every 15 seconds that turns on the light with an auto-off of 7 seconds on the Turn On action. Then you just enable the schedule when you need it to flash, disable it when you don't.

Thanks Jay.
Basically the blink shall happen when a door opens, would it be possible to enable the schedule based on trigger?

Re: Blink light every 2 seconds for 15 seconds

hi Jay

isn't MarcoGT asking to have a light blink every 2 seconds for 15 (maybe 16) seconds ?

my take is the ask is for a Light action like this:
<blink>..... Pause....<blink>..... Pause....<blink>..... Pause....<blink>..... Pause....<blink>..... Pause....<blink>..... Pause....<blink>..... Pause....<blink>..... Pause....<blink>

where the sequence "<blink>..... Pause...." takes 2 seconds?

I am not following how your solution would do this.

Ah, right, I was basing my interpretation on the body of the post (which doesn't mention the 2 second criteria), not the subject. For this case, you'd create a schedule which would repeat every 4 seconds, turn on the light with an auto off after 2 seconds. This will create the flashing. Next, you add a Trigger when the door opens to enable the schedule and add an auto-disable after 15 seconds. This will start the flashing when the door opens and then stop the flashing after 15 seconds.
