Manual execution with a duration


Hi all, I would like to create a scene where I turn on my device with a manual execution and leave it on for a set duration (e.g. 1 hour) Hence: turn on the AC and turn it off after 1 hour. How do achieve this? I do not want to specify every time the start time and end time with a schedule.

Thanks for your help!

Hi Luca,


Thanks for using our products!


We haven’t added this feature into it yet. But I think that’s an awesome idea! Maybe this could be achieved by puting a scene or timers into another scene. In fact, we loved the idea so much we’re began working on it a short time ago. I don’t have an ETA from the team behind it yet but from their last update, I’d say we’re close to launching it.

Thanks Rei,


I believe a great workaround would be building an applet on IFTTT that uses a filter that works as timer for the countdown. could you guys please tell us the code to use this filter properly? it should be easy for you as you are the experts :)

    I have a number of different kinds of smart devices assigned to particular rooms in my google home, including switchbots. when I give a specific command for a switchbot, it works fine, but if I give a room level command, such as, turn on all the living room lights, all of the devices in the living room respond, except for the switchbot (even though they are most definitely assigned to that room in Google home). This occurs in every room where I have a switchbot, and all batteries are fine on the switchbots, so this is a program level issue. please tell me how to fix this, or if you are already aware that this is an issue that you are working on currently.

    Hi,there. I'm doubted that even this writings are written on your post :) On the feedback messanger, you guys asked me to upload my firmware info on my app and devices. And I sent you and waited for 4 days(2days if counting business days). Today, I got the message I didnt reply anything. Wow.... A week ago, I firstly post that your device doesn't recognize the basic timer and the things I've been replied are what is your firmware version? and ignoring messages...

    La télécommande freebox semble être une telecommande radio et non IR. Impossible de l’ajouter au hub ??
