💡 Make switches timer enabled


Event/Trigger(s): 1. When a switch turned ON
Condition(s): 1. Timer Mode (an input boolean) is ON
Action(s): 1. Start the timer
Why do you need this automation?Smart switches can also be used as timer based switches. Once the switch is turned on, it starts the timer, and when the timer is elapsed, the switch is turned off. Combine this with motion sensors and other other data to make it more interesting!"
