Proximity Manager - How to implement delay


I have a timing issue in my script, as I am not sure how to implement a delay, in that when the proximity sensor is entered, a variable (handstate) changes only after 2 seconds have elapsed.

That variable change triggers a certain action in a different function, but to keep it simple, I have copied below the proximity function I have:

def EnterProximity_IndexFinger(e): # decide what happens on sensor entry
	global handstate
	e.sensor == SensorIndexFinger 
	handstate = 1
	print "sensor A entered"
	print condition
So far, I tried to not change the handstate inside the proximity function but to use it to call another function that has a delay implemented. Something like this:

def Change(): 
        global handstate
        yield viztask.waitTime(2)
        handstate = 1

def EnterProximity_IndexFinger(e): # decide what happens on sensor entry
	global handstate
	e.sensor == SensorIndexFinger 
	print "sensor A entered"
        yield Change()
Another thing I tried is to not use the "manager.onEnter" it but the "yield vizproximity.waitEnter". However, I must be doing something wrong as neither method works.

I reckon it must not be too tricky to achieve this - in essence I just want a 2 second delay after proximity sensor was entered before my action is triggered. But I am not sure how to achieve this. I would be very happy to receive some ideas or help!
