How can I have an automation trigger 5 minutes after a binary sensor changes to a given state?
I have a laser emitter / sensor that I’m planning to install just inside my garage door at bumper height. My plan is to use esphome so HA knows if the door is clear. I also have an LED light that comes on when the bumper is clear of the door so I know when to stop pulling into the garage. Here is my yaml for the binary sensor and for controlling the “stop” light:
binary_sensor: - platform: gpio pin: 16 name: "Garage Door Clear" id: garage_door_clear device_class: safety filters: - invert: - delayed_on: 200ms on_state: then: if: condition: binary_sensor.is_on: garage_door_clear then: - output.turn_off: gpio_light else: - output.turn_on: gpio_light output: - platform: gpio pin: 12 id: gpio_light
I’d like to turn the “stop” light off after 5 minutes or so. There’s really no reason for it to burn all the time. It seems that within esphome you can only have triggers that work on a state change. I know that I could expose the light to HA and use a HA automation to turn it off, but I’d prefer to keep it within the esphome ecosystem.
