There are fancier ones... but a plain vanilla timer switch does the job.
Any supply house or big box hardware place will have them.

This pic shows a dial; button types can be had too.

I think the OP is trying to recreate a common Euro lighting control.

"Over there," it is common for stairwells to be normally 'dark,' with a puchbutton on each landing. The idea is that you push the button and the lights come on- just long enough for you to make it to the next landing. Then you get to push the button again.

Oddly enough, these days it isn't the switch that does the 'thinking,' but a timer at the panel that gets 'reset' every time a button is pushed. An ordinary 'delay off' industrial timer will do this for you, usning momentary N.O. switches in parallel.

So you hit the switch and as soon as you hit it, it begins counting down and shutoff within a few seconds?
