Basic tips for HomeKit automation – using two sensors or two triggers

Pretty new to automation, so I’m looking for a general guide that could help me with the following scenario. I have some Onvis SMS1 sensors that include a motion, humidity and temperature sensor. I would like to schedule an automation in my home office, so that when I enter during the day and the temperature is below a certain point, to turn the smart radiator valve to heat the room. I don’t want automation to go off if I just go in and pick up a pen, so it would be great if he said regularly, “Is there still movement?” occasionally. Or maybe the trigger requires a constant movement for more than a minute, etc.? I have no idea if these are possible, but if there are some thoughts and guidance that someone could give, then I would be very grateful.
