I’m very new to wled and automation in general.
So I set up my first wled instance with 5v strip, and after hours mesmerised by all of the different effects (Awesome work guys - Thanks), I thought I should actually do something with it.
I have an idea which I’ve been toying with.
What I want to do is to have a countdown display on the LED strip.
What I mean is, at the start all the LEDs are lit, and by the end all of the LEDs are off. (Fancy animations and timer end animations are a bonus, and eventually I want it triggered by my amazon alexa probably via home assistant. - one step at a time)
A use-case for this is something like an egg timer, or digital sand-timer/hourglass)
So first thing first. I looked under Time and Macros.
There’s a countdown timer option.
It looks like I need to set an end date and time? I was hoping for just a time duration like 4 minutes.
I tried setting a time, with my effect set to solid, hit save and waited…
What should I have seen? Because I don’t think it did anything when the set time passed.
Thanks for any advice/info on this.
