Turn on for amount of time


It could be great to have a shortcut directly on a device to turn it on for a certain amount of time.

I know this is possible to achieve that with Automation, but it’s not convenient.

My idea is that you touch your light, or your AC, or whatever device, and you have a shortcut to turn it on for x minutes. It could create an automation behind the scene and delete it once the task is done.

Smartthings have something similar in their app

When you go on a light you can set a timer to turn it off after x minutes / hours. It’s just one touch.

I think it’s something really missing from HA.


I agree, maybe this could be added to the scheduler @neliss made. Don’t forget to vote for your own feature request!
