Marcus,

Here's my attempt at an explanation.

The timer functions only operate when your pronto is on selected pages. You can select any pages you want it to operate on but, but default, it doesn't operate on any of them. To select a page for the timers to operate on, go to the page properties of that page and follow Schmutzli's instructions. By adding the eval command to a page script, you are effectively saying "when on this page, run the timer script".

Thanks for this explanation - it's starting to make sense now. But the main problem I have is that I can't paste the script because none of my pages display an 'advanced' properites option - how do you get that?

I'm running the latest version of PEP2 (I never used the original version) - could that have something to do with it?

2.3.17 has a standard and advanced display option which is probably why you cant find it, and its in standard initailly.

got to Tools -> Options -> General Settings and change the display mode to Advanced then you will see the necessary properties tabs

This appears to me to be more of an alarm than a 'timer'. Have you considered adding the ability to have what I would consider a 'timer' - i.e. allow a duration to be selected such as a sleep timer where you could select to turn the system off after 90 minutes?

It is actually pretty simple to write both alarms and timers and prontoscript, using global variables to control the processing, and taking advantage of the fact that the pronto wakes up for a second every minute. An example 'alarm' in my configuration: each night, my Pronto gets the sunrise time from the Internet and x minutes before sunrise opens my curtains and, if the temperature is below a certain point, switches on my heating. An example timer: the heating is automatically switched off x minutes later. Both are controlled by a script which runs in that second every minute that the Pronto wakes up for and it works perfectly, even if I am using the Pronto at the time. The only issue I have found is if the Pronto goes back to sleep in the middle of processing but I can stop this happening by 'pressing the backlight button' in those parts of the script that can take noticeable elapsed time.

Hi,

I've bought both of these modules. Haven't had a chance to use the Timer yet, but am having an issue with the Menu system.

I only want the soft buttons to call the menu system, but when I only configure the soft buttons, as soon as I press the button and select something from the menu, pressing the soft button again to withdraw the menu, the name of the button disappears?

I'm also having a problem with trying to get the menu to appear over an existing panel.

Anyone else have this working OK?

Cheers, Lee

Hi lscolman2
In correspondence to your question please look up the following forum clicking on the link below:
ProntoFlashMenu

Right now I am also working on a sunrise / sunset timer functionality as well as an interval timer, which I will release with my next version of the ProntoTimer script.

Just viewed the Timer demo. I find it a bit odd that you MUST set the clock to a 24 hour clock. Can the code not detect time from 12 hour clock and convert to 24 hour format? I understand that timers are set based on 24 hour format but think it a bit odd to set the remote time to 24 hour format just for consistency.

Hello everyone

Of  course I am still working with emphasis on the new ProntoTimer Version 2.0 with the goal to fulfill as many of your wishes  as I possibly can. Here a sneak preview on what you will find in my latest version:

The new ProntoTimer comes next to two setup (properties) pages with two user pages. On the first page you will find 6 identical AlarmTimers. These can be underlied  with activities such as e.g. light or music on/off (with captions) in the setup pages. On the user pages you can (directly within the TSU) then can set and activate the timer with time and weekday.





On the secon page there are 4 special timers at your disposal:

SleepTimer

The SleepTimer can be activated manually or with 3 predefined QuickButtons and be eiter set to 15min / 30min / 45min. The desired SleepTimer time is then calcualted instantly and displayed.Hint: The QuickButtons can also be copied to other pages  for example the TV page. The Sleeptimer is also suitable in order to set time limits for the  TV consumption of your kids.


IntervalTimer

With the IntervalTimer the same actions is being repeated in the predefined "rhythm".


SunsetTimer

The SunsetTimer is predesposed to know the time of the sun setting. Daily the actual sunset time is being synchronised over the internet. Taking into consideration you lead time or follow-up time the execution time is being calculated accordingly.


Sunrise Timer

The Sunrise Timer comes with equal functionality in accordance to sunrise time. You could, for example, have your timer operate your sun blends 30 minutes prior to sunset and then have the sunset timer lower them when the sun is gone.





I hope to finish my work in progress until the beginning of December and hope that you will like the new functionality.

Thank you very much for offering to support me in my testing efforts. The truth is my English is not tingly (I have a friend that helps me with translation work). Therefore I have given my Beta-Release to German speaking colleagues. This way the intermediary translation work is not an issue and I can get to it more quickly.

Having some strange issues with pronto timer.

The timers at page 1(ABC) is working normally.

But the timers at page 2(DEF) doesnt work.

Have tried to copy timers from abc to def, but no luck.

So it must be the DEF page that are wrong.

Haven't done nothing with script, everything looks ok.

Using the newest pep2 and firmware(tsu 9400)

I know that Schmuzli english isn't all that, so maybe someone else can help? :)

Hello Albani
This is a known bug in Version ProntoTimer94-1.1.As updates always involve a lot of work I would like to suggest you that you wait for version 2.0, which will be available to you soon (free of charge).

The latest version 2.0 ist ready and the testers have given me a lot of good input to make the time more functional and usable. I am updating the installation guide and then I will post the new version: I ask you for your patience.
Best regards
