"Countdown" timer feature - pushbutton (or from turning on)

Hello everyone,


as i seen now the way to create any countdown timer has no regard to the current state of the sonoff. when a timer is created (of any kind) it creates a TIME-STAMP to change the state of the switch.

is it possible to create a timer lets say to turn off an appliance 20 minutes FROM THE MOMENT it was turned on? (its good even if this effects only turning on via push-button)

with the current situation  if i create a loop timer or any other it may turn off the device after 2 minutes as the timer is not counting from the state change.

I have solved with the command "PulseTime" with the firmware tasmota... but i really need the cloud service because i get NAT ip addresses from my isp

When it will be add this option?

Start creating a new scene and you will find it. Works from ewelink 3.11

More info required. Ive tried to interpret what you have done but I cant make it countdown using scenes etc. Can only make it work with the 1hr timer in settings. I need 2 hours to off after turning om.

+1 for the countdown! 

For example,  i use IFTT with geolocalization, when i arrive to my home i want to my  bethroom lights, turn on for only 5 min.

Other example: when i want to go to the batrhoom from my bed, i want to the batrhoom ligths, turn on for 3 min and then, turn off.

This 2 examples i want to excecute from de notification center for ios ( shortcut, dossent work today )


No one has posted how to really do this.  This ewelink software is a friggin' mess if you ask me.  Interface makes no sense at all.

Salut les gars
