Motion Lighting Using Same Sensor

Will the following turn off the selected switches after five minutes of no motion? i.e. is the five minute timer cancelled when motion is detected or is the motion property of the sensor checked at the end of the timer?

My recommendation would be to use Basic Rules for something like this.

Okay, but the same question applies, "is the five minute timer cancelled when motion is detected or is the motion property of the sensor checked at the end of the timer?"

No, not the way you have it. That's not how to set up the Basic Rule. Use "Motion has stopped and stayed inactive for..."

Where is "When a ..." and "Motion has stopped and stayed inactive ..."

Is that Motion Lighting, Simple Automation Rules, or Rule Machine?

Basic Rule

Wow, I've been using Hubitat for 17 months and didn't even know Basic Rules existed.

Thank you.
