Countdown timer

Hi I was wondering if there is a generic thing for time?
meaning I want to start a countdown timer from the kitchen screen so when the time passes I’ll get a notification and will play a sound.

I know how to do everything except starting the timer for a specific timer I chose from GUI.
meaning once start the timer for 35mins and another time start it for 1:30H
I don’t see an input parameter in the Countdown thing I found!

I want something like this pic with an input parameter for choosing the time not having the timer hardcoded when adding the thing.

Yes, there is, it’s called “Countdown”. IIRC it’s part of nymea-plugin-datetime. You can install that from system settings → System updates → Install/remove software. Make sure to restart after installing it.

Edit: Just see now that you have found this, but you’re asking for something else… Right now I don’t think there’s a way to easily set that up… But it would sure make sense I suppose. Need to think about where this might fit best…


definitely would be useful to;

  1. have a “Set Time” button within the countdown thing (instead of navigating through the thing’s configuration)
  2. have the countdown time showing under status and updates in real-time as it approaches 0s.
