What's the best way to setup lights to come on if triggered, and to shut off "after" 30 minutes of no motion?

I have two scenes setup for turning them on and turning them off, but I don't understand how the pause option would work?

Scene 1 - turn on:
- Have the trigger watch your motion sensor. Turn on your lights

Scene 2 - turn off devices:
- Have this scene trigger be a repeating timer that goes off every minute.
- Add a device at state for time condition that checks to make sure motion has been 0 for more than 30 minutes.
