Sensor and IFTTT automation

Cupertino, April 14, 2020

I have a group of lights called outside (iHome, WeMo and Hue bulbs). Currently, a Hue light bulb is triggered by IFTTT with the Google Calendar event. This follows the irregular schedule of my wife's night shift and the lights should not go on every night. At HomeKit, I have an automation that lights up, with the light mentioned above, it is started by IFTTT. All this works well. Now I added a Hue motion sensor to trigger the same group during the evening to let the dog out with it after 10 minutes.

Problem: If the sensor is triggered when the IFTTT / Home sequence is already active and the sensor automation sequence is running, it will overtake the others and stop after 10 minutes.

Question: How do I set it so that if the IFTTT sequence is triggered and the sensor is triggered, that IFTTT replaces the sensor automation ?????
