‘REPEAT’ is a trigger function that lets you specify that a condition must be met multiple times during a set time-period before proceeding to the action.
The trigger is only activated if the true state is repeated a specific number of times during a time frame of your choice.
- Within — The event must be true a set number of times during a certain time frame before the trigger is activated. For example, a motion sensor only sends an alarm if it is tripped 3 times in 30 seconds. Or to create a switch that turns off every light in an area if you flick it on-and-off twice (i.e. force two ‘true’ states) in a short time frame.
- After — The event must be true a set number of times after a certain period of time has elapsed. This allows you to delay an action from taking place.
