Ignore message for the first 5 seconds

How can I block messages for a certain time?
In the first 5 seconds of starting a machine, I can expect alarms.
I want to ignore the alarms for a certain period to give the machine time to start up.
How can I do this?
Any ideas?

You could use a node-red-contrib-simple-gate with a Trigger node which sends a message to the gate to block and then after 5 seconds sends a message to allow them through.

Thanks Colin,
Hooked it up to the start button and away it went :partying_face:
