Hi
Can I let dimmer switch off automatically after 2 hours on? I’m currently using Insteon Hub.

Thanks

I don't use the hub, but my perception is that this is beyond the capability of the hub. I know the hub/app does scenes, remote control, scheduled events. I don't see where the hub can trigger a timer based off status of a light switch. Hopefully, others will confirm or clarify.

You can link your account to stringify and set that up.

The Hub doesn’t have duration timers natively, but you can accomplish the same thing using another app or service that leverages the Hub’s API. Stringify is one option.
