Create an automation to turn on the AC for 15 minutes, regardless of temperature? Adding longer delays to automation

Cupertino, January 30, 2021

I woke up hot in the middle of the night lately and tried to find a way to create some kind of shortcut / scene that would run AC for about 15 minutes and then reset it to normal temperature. I came across the problem that shortcuts don't seem to allow a delay or more than a minute or two. Does anyone have any suggestions on how best to do this? I also installed the homebridge, but now it is only configured to work with my harmony center. Thanks for any ideas.
