Trigger automation 1h after input_datetime

Is it still the case that a template trigger is the only option for a time-based input trigger with an offset?

It’s not the only choice, but it’s the most sensible of the available choices.

FWIW, it’s usually better to use <= or >= instead of == when doing this type of time comparison.

I realized and changed it to >= right after posting the screenshot :slight_smile:

Any idea if there is already a feature request for an offset feature for the built in “time is equal to” trigger?

Yes, there are a couple related FR’s…

FR #431174

The feature actual did exist in the 2021.11 beta, but it had functionality issues and questions and it never got rolled out fully.
