Trigger Cool Down period?

Is there a way to have a trigger based on device state change, but then not have that trigger fire for n minutes after first firing?

I know I could do this with variables and conditions; wondering if there was a native "cool down" capability.

Thanks

Within the trigger's actions tab, there is a "Delay By" field where you can have Indigo wait the selected amount of time before performing the trigger's actions. Is this not able to serve your purpose?

For the first action in your Trigger have a type of Server Actions->Enable/Disable/Reload Actions->Disable Trigger, then for the Trigger select the same trigger itself. Next turn on the Auto-enable after checkbox and put in your MM:SS delay you want it to be ignored. It will then automatically disable itself for N minutes after it fires.

Thanks Matt. This is what I was looking for. Pretty straight forward without having to manage timer variables and other action groups.
