Start timer from a switch


Is it possible to start a timer from a switch button ?

Hi, this is not possible at the moment. What would you like to do with a timer? On Philips Hue you can add an effect to a switch which may do what you want.

I would like to start a light and a ventilator when coming into a toilet and stop 10 minutes after the ventilator I have an osram plug

I would like to trigger a timer from a switch, too: I would like a group of lights to dim down very slowly for a small kid to go to sleep (like a sunset) but the time changes every day, hence I would have to manually trigger it from a switch next to the bed instead of the phone. Is this technically possible? (running a phoscon bridge / raspbee 2)

Thank you for the feedback! Sounds like a good idea. It is on the wish list for future development.
