Try Setting Loop timer as follows for your Light & hope it will work. (just a logic based on my experience)


Loop Timer-> Restart Cycle = OFF

Check After Checkbox ->  Set Min to 2 Mins

Enable & OK

They need to change this to make it far more obvious that this is possible. By definition only the first part of a loop is not a loop because it doesn’t loop back to the start. Unless someone had previously set a loop up they wouldn’t have even noticed you can only do part of 1 loop.

so in short.... how is this done?

When I use the loop timer to auto off the timing is always wrong, I could set 10min, after 2 it will turn off. This is really annoying anyone can advise on this?

I wish I can help but mine is the same.  I've set mine to 3mins to turn OFF and it's off in less than 2.... often in about 1 min.  Very disappointing.  How complicated can it be to program a simple time-based timer.

Yeah it should be that difficult... I hope they correct this quickly. I am using this feature because I would like the pir motion detector (or the app or the hub) to be able to also detect the absence of motion for let's say 30min and order the lights to turn off but it won't so that is why I am using the loop but it is so random :(
I need this feature to control my water heater using Sonoff POW. Current loop timer function can do this auto off function but time is not correct at all and seems random. I need to auto off my water heater after 30 to 45 minutes once it is turned ON using built in switch.

Anyone from Sonoff can reply about this? Fixing this would help very much
