I have a couple of TP-Link Smart Wi-Fi plugs (HS105) and I’d like to be able to turn them ON for about five minutes, based on a motion event from my Wyzecams. After the five-minute interval I’d like them to automatically turn OFF without further intervention. Essentially, I’d like to mimic a common “dumb” motion-sensing security light which can easily turn on a light when motion is detected and then turn it off five minutes later. Currently, when my Wyzecams detect motion I use IFTTT to turn the plugs either ON or OFF, but can NOT have them automatically toggled after a fixed interval. Is there a way to do this? I also have an Amazon Echo and Google Home if either of these could play a role in solving this problem.
I’m not interested in purchasing a smarthome hub and different smartplugs to accomplish this but I would gladly use IFTTT or Stringify or another similar service if it could help me solve this problem.
It seems odd that a common “dumb” motion light is “smarter” than my Smart Plugs and Wyzecams, or maybe I’m just not smart enough to figure this out.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
