I would like to simulate a Timer, wich has the behaviour of a Sleeptimer, which is build in in a TV.
My idea is to build some items (state, time remaining) and a rule witch is executed every minute. While the timer is running I would to see it state (time remaining) and would to have the ability to change it (increase or decrease the value). Also the timer must not have a problem with a new day if it is running over midnight.
Does somebody has such a timer and would like to share it?
Otherwise, is it good to run a rule every minute?
Some suggestions how to build it?
What would be the best way to build it? One Item with the remaining time in minutes? Two Items like a alarm clock (hour + minute)?
One rule for changing the remaining time and another for the action if the timer reaches zero?
I was looking for a similar rule example, because I want to add some sleep timer logic for a bunch of switches. Since I don’t find any solution, I created my own “Generic SleepTimer Library” You can find it on github:
