Add an activation delay on a trigger

So I would to know if there is a way to put an activation delay on a trigger.. Now I already know that you can delay the action the trigger does, but what I am looking for is this:
Lets say I have a Magnetic sensor on gate wired to an I/Olink . If the gate is opened and then closed in less than 10 seconds, the action does not fire, however if the sensor is in an open state for longer than lets say 10 sec, it then fires the Action. Does this feature exist?

Re: Add an activation delay on a trigger

You can implement that by using a Timer object and a few triggers. Create a trigger that fires when the IOLinc changes to open that starts the timer. Create another trigger that stops the timer when the IOLinc changes to closed. Finally have a trigger that fires when the timer expires that executes the actions you want.

The Timed Devices plugin probably has a neater solution.

One of the timers within does what you say, without needing three different triggers and timers stopping each other.
