Turning lights for specific duration after Motion detected

I tried few things but could not get this to work. I have a motion sensor and 6 lamps setup in the basement. The idea is, as soon as the sensor detects motion, I want all the lights to turn on, stay on for 5 mins, then turn off.

Any help would be appreciated

This trigger work? You can group your lights or add them individually. Also create another rule for them to turn on at motion.


That looks like the best solution to me. Add that as a separate rule. First rule simply turns them on when motion is detected. Second rule looks like what @omgitstony posted.


Beautiful solution, Thank you guys. I now realize the fallacy in my logic. I was somehow thinking that I had to include everything in one single rule … :frowning: … Live and Learn. Cheers
