Timed trigger cost

How expensive, from a processing stand point, are timed triggers? I want to send an email if a device is left on for more than 5 minutes. I think a timing trigger is needed to run every minute and check if device is at state 255 more than 5 minutes. Since it would evaluate this condition every minute is that going to bog axial down?

No, I wouldn't hesitate to create a trigger like this. On the other hand, if you were to do this every few seconds it might start to bog things down a bit.

Alright I'll give it a go... 

On completely different note, is there anyway to tune down the logging on the Hue plugin?  With 6 bulbs it's outputting around 25 lines every 15 secs (guessing 4 lines per bulb).
