Trying to Google Home enable my garage door by using a smart plug and relay to mimic another wall controller basically. Everytime I turn on the smart plug I need to turn it off after say 5 seconds. TP Link has their Kasa app but does not support/do what I want it to do so trying to find another way to do it… Any help is greatly appreciated!
5 seconds is a little short, you might get some inconsistent results due to latency.
If switch changes to on With switch Wait 5 seconds Turn off End if
Hi, I’m new here but I am trying to do this right now too and it seems like something that would be easy to do.
This is actually the first piston I’m working on.
I made a piston late last night and it appeared to work but I wanted to make some changes to the devices. I started over today and made a piston for 1 smart HS100 by itself. Again, it appeared to be working when I had it set to 2 minutes. I wanted to play with the timing a little bit, reduced the timing to 30 seconds or less and I haven’t gotten it to work since. My script was the same as above (and I wasn’t sure if I had done something wrong) but confirmed that it’s right in multiple places, today. I switched over to the new ST app and added an automation (it allows you to set up this simple of an automation in the app) but then I get a server error, please try again later when I try to save it. I still don’t know if I’m doing something wrong or???
I just figured it out. Had to decrease the refresh time of each tp link device in webcore to every minute. Everything started working immediately.
