can you have a time on how long a gate keeps open once you hit the trigger

See LUADOC -> Objects -> AnimatedObject
I'd assume the attribute 'duration' determines the time.

AnimatedObject :

For a general purpose delay in Lua you can use a variable (that equals your desired time in frames) then decrease it by 1 every update(frame) until it is <= 0...

primitive eg.

myScript = {}
myScript.delayTime = 20;

function myScript:update(dt)

    if myScript.delayTime <= 0 then
        --Run your code
        myScript.delayTime = myScript.delayTime - 1;
