Queue Automations That Trigger To Actually Execute Later?

I have an automation configured that scans my email for a particular Subject and tells my Google Nest Max in my kitchen to announce it.

The problem is, this email could come at 2am. I don’t want to hear Google Assistant at 2am, but I do want Google Assistant to tell me about it while I’m eating breakfast at 6am.

Is there a way to queue execution of the automation action for a specific time of day after it’s been triggered earlier on?

I use wait_template for that. You can delay the actions until whenever you want.

Note though that if you get another trigger while in the wait template, the wait template will be cancelled and the actions will continue. At least for now. pbruckner is working on a method to allow alterations to this behaviour but it is a complex task and may take some time.
