Timer in Dashboard

A near online timer made in Dashboard. You can link it with any automation setup in NodeRED, deploy multiple timers and add schedules to your devices. You can customise the payload to suit your needs. enter image description here

Instructions: You can read all set up instructions here


Features:

  • Modular (as a subflow)
  • Unlimited timers per device
  • Supports “days of the week”
  • works offline
  • Dashboard interface
  • One button reset

You will need the following nodes:

  • node-red-dashboard
  • node-red-contrib-schedex

Settings

  • PayloadON payload message sent on ON action
  • PayloadOFF payload message sent on OFF action
  • TimerNumber timer ID (unique for each timer)
