Best way to turn off a keypadlinc button after ten seconds

I have a button on my keypadlinc that opens the garage door. However, I wanted to prevent accidental openings, so I set it up so that if the user wants to open the garage, they must press button 7 FIRST, then button 8.

That all works and it works great, but in the even button 7 is pressed accidentally, I want it to turn off after ten seconds. There is no actual device attached to button 7, so as far as I can tell, the "Turn off after x seconds" option is inaccessible.

Of course, I could write a schedule that checks the button literally every ten seconds, but this seems like a bad idea...

I suppose I could plug in a dummy lamplinc somewhere with nothing plugged into it so I could use the auto-off feature, but there must be a better way. And would the auto-off even turn off the button anyway... or just the lamplinc.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Create a trigger that fires when the button goes on. The action would be to turn the button off and the action has a delay of 10 seconds.

Of course! I knew there must be something really simple I was missing.
