Gate is open, send alert... after 30 minutes still open? Send another alert.. How to setup this flow


#1

I’m wondering if there is an easy way to setup this flow with Xiaomi Door Alarm:

  1. Gate is open, send alert…
  2. After 30 minutes still open? Send different alert…
  3. After 60 minutes still open? Send different alert & blink lights

I managed the first flow:

Curious what’s the best approach for step 2 & 3


#2

I have the same thing created for my front and back door


#3

Make a countdown timer Gate

flow 1: IF contact alarm gate goes on THEN start gate timer at 3600 sec AND send Alert 1
flow 2: IF contact alarm gate goes off THEN stop gate timer
flow 3: IF gate timer value has changed AND value is exact 1800 sec(logica) THEN send alert 2
flow 4: IF gate timer value has changed AND value is exact 0 THEN send Alert 3 and whatever.

Thnks Harm @HTilburgs, which app is the “meldingen” app? Will experiment tomorrow with your approach…

Thanks Seiko for your prompt response, this approach looks easy, will check this one also!

Meldingen is just a Virtual Device, so I can turn on/off the messages if I need.

@Seiko I choosed your approach… 4 flows

Installed the Countdown App and created 4 flows:

Gate is open:

Gate is closed:

30 minutes reminder:

60 minutes reminder:

Tomorrow the Window Washer will visit the house, let’s see how this turns out:-)

Future plans
Closing the gate automatically, therefore I started a post with an app request… no response so far… :frowning: I should repost it here I guess

In the mean time I bought a GoGo Gate, which I can connect with IFTTT and automate it…

For now, many thanks to @seiko and @HTilburgs
