How to Set Delays Longer an Hour?
Do you have any applications that are similar? For instance, suppose you plug a clothes dryer into a socket and tell it to run for two hours before turning it off. Or perhaps you have an incubator light that you wish to switch off after four hours. These applications require the flexibility to add the same device as a trigger and action in the same Scene, as well as a longer Delay. Taking advantage of Alexa's routine in this instance will allow us to achieve this. By creating an Alexa routine, the device may be set to delay on or off at a fixed time that could be up to FOUR hours. Also, the routine fits setting two different devices in condition and action. Please follow the steps below to learn how to create this Alexa routine.
Step 1. Account Linking
First of all, please follow the instructions to link your eWeLink account to Alexa, so your eWeLink devices can be synced to Alexa App.
