Using WEMO Switch, Ring Door Bell, & IFTTT - turn light on for x minutes then back off?

I have a Ring Door Bell and a WEMO switch.  I am using IFTTT to turn the lights (WEMO switch) on when motion is detected by the ring door bell.  Is there a way to have the switch turn back off after a givne amount of time?

 

Thanks

Ring considers Wemo an integration partner, yet I don’t see any automations with Ring like Wemo has with Nest. I don’t us IFTTT anymore because it was too slow to respond.

Hi, JeffreyPMc! You can actually set an Auto off timer in the Wemo Switch. Check out this link on how to do so.

The AutoTimer works as a WeMo Rule, but how can you trigger a WeMo switch auto timer when a Ring Doorbell motion is detected? 

 

With IfTTT, the Ring Doorbell motion can turn the WeMo switch ON (or OFF, ON-OFF, OFF-ON, Toggle ON/OFF)  but cannot trigger the autotimer rule for it to turn OFF after x minutes. 

 

It would be nice to have a way to also select a delay ON or OFF after the WeMo action - perhaps as a choice when selecting the IfTTT WeMo action .
