I have a state transition which needs to be triggered when a condition is met for a fixed period of time.
In the example below, the response I would like is for the transition from the on to the off state to occur when the input is > 0 continuously for 5 seconds. If, during the 5 seconds input becomes <= 0 the state should remain on and the timer should reset. i.e. if input is > 0 again, it will wait for 5 seconds before transitioning to off.
The state machine below will transition to off instantly if input becomes > 0 after it has been in the on state for > 5 seconds.
Any help with resolving this problem is appreciated

you have to combine your two conditions with '&&'. That should solve your problem.

Here is another solution. However, I did not use the after() command.
