Is secondary air injection triggered only on cold starts?

Like the topic says, I drove around all day over the weekend and no code after i cleared it on the first start. The car never sat long enought to get really cold. But running around town, I probably started it at least 5 or 6 times.
Car was in Syracuse, highs last week were in the 40's for the most part.
I bring this up because I need inspection. If I clear the car in the morning, I think it may pass later in the day as long as the engine maintains some heat throughout the day. What do you think?
This may sound lazy, I don't have a garage to do work with my new place. Days are to short and to cold to be outside with the radiator hanging when the sun goes down.

The Bentley says that it will also come on while idling after the car is warmed up.
