Timer App!


Is there any app to start a timer to count time?
For example if window sensor are open then count time. If time is over 15 minutes then push message „Window XX is still open“
If it’s still not closed I can use if the time is over 20 minutes

I know I can use the countdown timer for ten minutes. But I wanna count the time, because then I can send more than one push message.
I don‘t wanna make more than one timer for every device.


Check Homey apps…


I only find the countdown timer app or other app for pir sensors. Would be fine to check if the status hasn‘t changed after xxx minutes.


So u did find the countdown app?


Yes but this is no solution!

As I’ve already written. I don’t want time to run out but to count up.
My solution was now to use the “device hasn’t reported in”


So u wanna start a timer that lasts forever. If u open the window u start a timer that lasts forever. When timer is on 15 minutes and window is still open then send message. When timer is at 20 minutes and window is still open then send message again.
What’s the difference in counting up or down in this case?


I agree with others that count down works.
I use it to tell us when the front door to open as follows:
Flow 1 triggers when door opens and sets a timer to 30 seconds.
Flow 2 triggers when timer is zero and makes homey speak plus sets the same timer to 10 seconds.
Flow 3 triggers when door closed and cancels the timer.

Obviously you can adjust the timer lengths.
