Open sensor notification

I would like the ability to alert on when a door has been left open for a certain period of time. For example, if a door is open for more than 60 seconds it might be letting out the heat or AC, or in my case my cats might try to escape outside.

The same could be done for when a door is left closed for a certain period of time. For example, if a door is closed to too long it might not let air circulate properly.

Hi
You can setup 2 routines with Alexa.
Routine (1) When the Door is opened:
Name: Whatever you want
When: Select the device and the trigger you are looking for. For me its the door and the trigger is open.
Anytime: for me is Always. You can setup as you like,
Add action: I did customized
“Set a timer for 10 minutes”
From: This device in my case, again you can setup as you need.
Save

Routine (2) When the Door is Closed:
Name: Whatever you want
When: Select the device and the trigger you are looking for. For me its the door and the trigger is closed.
Anytime: for me is Always. You can setup as you like,
Add action: I did customized
“cancel timer for 10 minutes”
From: This device in my case, again you can setup as you need.
Save

Only way I found it to work. A little tedious but hey I know.

Under your routines menu you can tap the Blue play button to simulate the routine happening.
Or physically do the deed.

please add an alert when door stays open more than x minutes. For me, if more than 2 minutes. Announce: Front door has been open for 2 minutes. Back door has been open for 5 minutes. This is easy and important. I don’t use a chime when the door closes.

This is the reason I logged in today. Please add this important feature. What is taking so long to accomplish this.

please add this feature!

There should definitely be notifications for things left open, especially doors, that a user can select the notification on a per sensor level.

I would like to see this feature added.

This feature has the fifth highest votes at the time of my reply so you would hope it will be added.
