im working for a reseller of telldus etc.

I have a customer who have purchased a z-wave magnet switch which he want to use as a door alarm.
The alarm should give you a notice if the door is open more than for example 5 minutes. Have found "timer" skripts that you can use but not exactly the way he wants to use it. Is this something you can do. Like a delay of 5 minutes and if the signal get triggered again (closed) the notice is cancelled?

Yes this is possible to achieve. Let the opening signal from the sensor trigger an event. As an action in this event you switch on an fictitious device (a device without a physical receiver) after a delay of 5 minutes ( supervision time of the door).
Then create another event with the fictitious device as a trigger, as a condition you have the door switch. If the door is closed the event will not be activated. If the door is still open, the event will run and execute the requested action.

Timer function needs a premium subscription.
