Outdoor Camera paired with Lightbulb

Hello, I recently bought by first Wyze lightbulb. I’m trying to use it as a motion sensor light. I have figured out how to have it turn on when the outdoor camera motion sensor is triggered. And, within the lightbulb, I can add a timer to turn it off within a period of time. However, the switch to turn it off appears to be just a one time trigger. What is the best way to have the light turn on when triggered then turn off after a period of time repeatedly? Any help is appreciated.

Set a Rule on the Bulb to turn off after it has been on a selected amount of time.

Thank you for the response. In addition to adding the original rule of turning on, I just added a new rule for
When: the light has been on for 1 min
Do: Action-turn off

Not sure what I’m missing, but it’s not turning off.
One step I also did was to turn the switch on & off…not sure if it needed a “reset”
Are the rules competing with one another? It’s only supposed to turn on when the motion is triggering it.

I assume the rule is a trigger?

I recommend you use the App to turn the Bulb off. Then get the camera to trigger it on and see if the rule works.

That worked! That was the secret. Turn the light off with the app. Then the triggers worked to turn off & on. Thank you!
