Interval timer for external jack

Interval timer for external jack

Am I missing something or isn’t there really a direct way to set up an on / off timer for outlets in general via the home app? I had to do this in a completely different way, creating a shortcut that is triggered first with a scan of the NFC tag, turns on the socket for 30 seconds, then stops for 10 minutes and repeats the process, though many or call it the script function. Well, between writing this and working, it turns out that even that doesn’t work after you’ve tried it. It seems that my phone is handling the shortcut of things and after a short time in sleep mode, my timers stop. Does anyone have a simple solution to this? I ended up setting up a separate automation every time I wanted it to turn on and set it to stop after a minute.
