Automation delay expression

I have automations that I have created that are on schedule task. In those automation I wanted to build in a delay for a specific amount of time so that it would then transition to close after that time delay.

I created a variable called TimeDelay which is a smart value {{now.plusHours(3)fullDateTime}} but not sure how to use it to define that to the transition.

This is what I thought just double checking.
