Scheduled Trigger de-activation

I have a situation where I want to manually activate my trigger for a motion sensor. However once the trigger is activated I want to have it switch off automatically at a specific time say 06am. How do I go about setting that up?

Re: Scheduled Trigger de-activation

Do you really need a trigger? If an action will be only manually triggered, could you just create an Action Group for the device you want to turn on and a schedule to turn off at 6 AM? If the action will also be triggered un-manually, then just add to the mix a trigger to call the action group.

Tigger A - call action group B
Action Group B - this takes the action(s) you want - such as turning on a light
Schedule C - this runs daily at 6AM (or whatever time you schedule it for) to reset things back (e.g., turn off the light)

Then to manually do Action Group B - just place a control in a control page which calls that action group.

Ok. I think that should do the trick. Will give it a try.
