Can you run 2 or more sequences at the same time? All questions

I've created 2 sequences, each is triggered by a custom webhook call.

Each sequence turns a separate smartplug on for 1 minute.

If I use the supplied url "" to trigger sequence 1, it works. And the same for sequence 2, it works also.

But if I quickly trigger sequence 1, then straight away trigger sequence 2, sequence 1 starts, but sequence 2 has to wait until sequence 1 has finished.

Is there a way to allow both sequences to run at the same time?

I'd maybe look to change the webhook to update a variable. then have both sequences trigger when the variable is changed?

There is a limit of one request per IP address at a time, so the server is probably holding your second request until the first sequence has run. Because of the one minute pause, it will take a minute before your IP address frees up again and the second webhook call can trigger.

Longer pauses are handled slightly differently. If it fits within your scenario, can you change the pause from 1 minute to 1 minute 5 seconds? I think that might solve it as a longer pause is suspended and might free up your IP address for the second webhook call. Let me know if this works.
