I am trying to use a dashboard timer to set the on/off time for a lamp. I am using what looks like a really good implementation of this from https://notenoughtech.com/home-automation/a-timer-in-nodered/, however, I cannot fathom the instructions for including it in my own project. I don't want to bombard the author with too many questions so I was wondering if anyone else has used it?
Here is what I have done so far:
I have imported the flow from (https://gist.github.com/notenoughtech/f24cb20846f57eec19ed617b25cb61ae) onto my node red instance. This has now put a timer on my dashboard. I can enter times and press the buttons but nothing seems to happen when the timer value is reached?
There is an instance of the subflow in the example when i imported it. I can't work out how to use it though?
I am probably being thick and as I am a bit new to node-red but I cannot figure out how to wire up the settings? I am not sure where to edit the environmental variables (this is what it says to do in the instructions).
If someone can point me in the right direction I would be very grateful - I have just spent a couple of hours trying to figure it out but have got nowhere - I am probably missing something fairly simple.
Thanks in advance,
