I have two shortcuts:
- Via SSH, shut down my Raspberry Pi.
- Via an IFTTT Webhook (using Get Contents Of URL), power off the Pi - using a smart plug.
Unless someone tells me otherwise, I can’t be certain the SSH shutdown would’ve completed if I immediately run the power off shortcut. So I don’t think I can combine the two shortcuts into one.
Is there any way of making a delay, of approximately 1 minute? It could be in Shortcuts or maybe IFTTT (or one of its competitors).
I suspect the answer is “no”.
The reason I want to power off the Pi is because it has an LCD screen on it that glows white until power is removed. (I suppose I could investigate options to turn off the screen from the Pi.)
In any case I have the smart plug turn itself off at 10PM to avoid annoying people trying to sleep.
