A node-red-ui time scheduler for the Node-RED Dashboard.
|Default Mode||Event Mode|
You can install this node directly from the "Manage Palette" menu in the Node-RED interface.
Alternatively, run the following command in your Node-RED user directory - typically
~/.node-red on Linux or
%HOMEPATH%\.nodered on Windows
npm install node-red-contrib-ui-time-scheduler
node-red v0.19 or above
node-red-dashboard v2.10.0 (v2.15.4 or above would be ideal)
Add a time-scheduler-node to your flow. Open the dashboard, you will see an empty scheduler. Click the plus sign at the top right corner of the node to create a new timer.
You can inject timers via a msg property
payload (see restoring schedules after a reboot section). If the injected msg has a property
enableDevice the node will disable/enable the devices output. Disabling/enabling works both with device name and index.
Whenever you add, edit or delete a timer a JSON string is sent to the nodes top output. This JSON string contains all timers and settings.
Every other output (number of total outputs depends on how many devices you have added) emits true/false every 60 seconds. In Event Mode the event is only sent at the specified time. Adjusting the refresh rate, choosing if a msg.
topic is sent and if messages are blocked unless the value has changed is possible within the node's options.
Restoring schedules after a reboot
You can use the JSON string from the nodes top output to directly inject timers after a (re)boot or (re)deploy:
If you changed the node-red contextStorage to localfilesystem, timers are automatically saved and restored after a reboot.
