I want a convenient way to have Google Assistant "run garage outlet (light) for 5 hours, starting at 11pm".  The command  "run garage outlet for 5 hours" works fine, but only "right now," i.e. not if I say "starting at 11pm."  I can say "turn on outlet at 11pm" and then say "turn off outlet at 4am", and that works fine, but it's a bit of trouble to have to use 2 separate commands; I would like to make it easier.  Ideas?  I'm a developer so I would not mind learning to use some kind of scripting language.  Also it occurred to me that I could use an Ios shortcut in tandem with the Google Assistant command "run for 5 hours," and that might be OK too; but even better not to have to use the iPhone. Thanks!
