View Full Version : "Wait" action locks up girder??

I've set up some automation tasks that make use of the "Wait" action. In some cases I need to wait as long as 1 hour before executing the next action in the macro.

The problem I am having is that during the waiting period, everything else in Girder seems to stop functioning. If I manually try to execute another action such as turning on an Insteon light, executing a USB-UIRT command, etc., nothing happens. It is as though Girder is stuck waiting for the Wait timer to expire before it will allow me to do anything else.

Is this normal behavior? If so, how can I get around this? I need to be able to do other things in girder while these timers are running.

Hoping someone can help, thanks!

Yes, "wait" is freezing Girder.
Try "Simple Timer" that's what you're looking for.

Thank you!!! I had no idea this was hiding in the actions list!
