How to remove "Schedule" ("_auto_off_Kitchen Dimmer")?

I have a motion detector that automatically turns on Kitchen Dimmer upon sensing motion - and it does an auto-off after 5 minutes... but it drove me CRAZY last night cos the following happened:

I walked into the kitchen, the lights came on, I began making dinner, then the lights would turn off 5 min into the recipe. So I went to turn on the light manually but before I got to the switch, they turned on automatically cos "motion detected!"... of course this meant that they'd turn off in 5 minutes cos of the schedule - no matter if i manually turned on the switch or not..

So today I told the "trigger" to only turn the lights "on" if they weren't on already, thus stopping the trigger from adding the "off after 5 minutes"

BUT what I want to do is have a trigger do the following: IF someone turned on the switch manually, it would delete ALL "Schedules" named "_auto_off_Kitchen Dimmer" then turn the light on (cos this would then mean if i was gonna spend an extended time in the kitchen I could tap the light switch to "on" anytime I was there and it would "erase" any "_auto_off_Kitchen Dimmer" schedules the trigger might have created by my motion.

My light switch is a "Leviton DZ6HD-1BZ Decora Smart 600W Dimmer with Z-Wave Plus Technology" so I don't know if it sends a "on" to indigodomo when it is tapped. I know some models don't ... I also SEEM to remember something about only one company having a copyright/whatever on the "talk-back/announce" feature. So Indigodomo couldn't function with others cos they don't announce their state. Is this right?

Ideas?

Thanks!

I have a similar setup and have had similar frustrations. I think what you are looking for is to remove delayed actions:
