Driveway ALERT MACRO using MS16A motion sensor and SC546A chime
« on: December 03, 2017, 01:08:02 PM »

I have created a macro;   Trigger B2( MS16A) On and Time is between 9am and 10:45pm Set Flag 1 Turns Driveway alert (SC546A)Chime on. This works perfectly.

 I can not figure out how to add a 30 second delay in between the on command from trigger B2 for the SC546A chime. If someone is still activating MS16A I would like a 30 second delay in between chiming. If anyone has any ideas It would be greatly appreciated.   Thank you in advance.     Edjal

I have no issue creating the macro.
Click on hide conditions then try to add the delay.
Since it is tricky to add something to the start of an existing macro put the delay in the second spot then drag the set flag down, that will move the delay up.

Thank You Mr Tuiceman that worked perfectly.   It delays the first and all other motions detected by the ms16a by 30 seconds. Is there a way for the first motion detected to be an instant alert and all others to be delayed within a certain period of time lets say during a 5 min duration?
