Timed triggers

Hi guys can someone tell me how to make an actuator to be “on” for a specified time? say have an LED turn on only for 10 seconds then turn off? do we have this option when using triggers? thanks.

Using trigger this cannot be achieved. But this can be done by coding your device.

Can u show me a sample sketch on how to accomplish this?Thanks in advance

try this:

void setup() {
  pinMode(4, OUTPUT);
  Cayenne.begin(username, password, clientID);
int x;
unsigned long lastMillis = 0;

void loop() {
  if (x == 1)
    if (millis() - lastMillis > 10000) {
      x = 0;
      Serial.println("led is off");
      digitalWrite(4, LOW);
      Cayenne.virtualWrite(1, 0);


// Default function for sending sensor data at intervals to Cayenne.
// You can also use functions for specific channels, e.g CAYENNE_OUT(1) for sending channel 1 data.
  // Write data to Cayenne here. This example just sends the current uptime in milliseconds on virtual channel 0.
  Cayenne.virtualWrite(0, millis());
  // Some examples of other functions you can use to send data.
  //Cayenne.celsiusWrite(1, 22.0);
  //Cayenne.luxWrite(2, 700);
  //Cayenne.virtualWrite(3, 50, TYPE_PROXIMITY, UNIT_CENTIMETER);

// Default function for processing actuator commands from the Cayenne Dashboard.
// You can also use functions for specific channels, e.g CAYENNE_IN(1) for channel 1 commands.
  x = getValue.asInt();
  lastMillis = millis();
  Serial.println("led is on");
  digitalWrite(4, HIGH);

thank u for your help. it worked!
