Example 1 (Run alarm effect when the timer ends):

This example creates two local variables, ElapsedTime and AlertCount, with Number as data type. It then runs a timer with Stopwatch Start and sets the time from the ElapsedTime variable. When the timer ends, a loop blinks the light three times with 3 seconds interval per blink. A notice is then sent as voice message in Speech Output.


Example 2 (Run alarm effect when the sensor is on):

This example toggles the motion sensor and turns on the hue light multiple times when the state of the sensor is "On". The hue light is then turned off after a specified time and a voice message is sent via Speech Output.
