I was looking for a way to switch on a light when my camera detected movement then switch off after a pre-set time. I know it’s easy with the PIR but the camera doesn’t tell you when it’s stopped and after a lot of searching through forums I couldn’t find a simple way to do it.
I use the Sonoff via IFTTT to control the mains so I played around with the ‘Timer’ and ‘Loop timer’ function but no joy, however I noticed a setting called ‘Inching’.
All Sonoff products I’ve used are really great but their translated documentation is the worst and I couldn’t fine any description as to what it does.
The answer is that ‘Inching’ is in fact a countdown timer !!! perfect for the job
