Alexa Wait

About three years ago I blogged about creating a pair of Amazon Alexa routines that automated the process of going to the basement to watch TV.  The only thing that annoyed me was when I was ready to go back upstairs, the routine would turn off the floor lamp right away, leaving me to carefully walk up the stairs in the dark.  Recently I noticed in one of my daily technology emails that Alexa has a wait function, which can be set in increments of five seconds,  As shown below, I added a 10-second wait before Alexa turns off the light, making my escape from the basement much safer.
