Sensor and Bulbs question

Is it possible to set up the sensor and bulbs so the bulb turns on when the sensor detects motion and then it turns off after x minutes? Well, I know it’ll turn on but don’t see an option to have it turn off by itself after a specified period of time. Was wondering if anybody found a work-around for this? Thanks,


You need to create a separate Rule that turns the bulb off after x minutes.

— Edit —
I should add… they drawback to doing this is, when you want to turn the bulb on for longer than x minutes, you have to remember to disable the Rule.

Thanks, but yeah, because of the mentioned drawback this is not going to work. This is my garage light so sometimes I’ll want to it to stay on longer than x minutes.

I have a separate switched light for the garage in addition to the timed light…

Hmm, that might work. I do have 2 pairs of lights in the garage as well. The only time where I need more light is when I’m cleaning the garage or look for stuff.
