troubleshooting Question

Is there a way of having a device turn back on after being turned off for several hours, example 4 hours, via SmartThings, Amazon Alexa or with some other type of smart power outlet?

Hi,

We have a SmartThings hub and SmartThings power outlet.

There is a device plugged into the SmartThings power outlet.

Also, we have an Amazon Echo Dot connected with the SmartThings power outlet.

There is also a Google Home in the room.

Ideally, what we would like to happen is that if someone turns off the SmartThings power outlet via the app or Amazon Alexa, that the SmartThings power outlet would turn back on after several hours, example 4 hours.

This would mean the device connected to the smart outlet could only ever be turned off for 4 hours at most.

Is there a way of configuring this via SmartThings, Amazon Alexa or with some other type of smart power outlet?

Thanks,
Robbie
