show remaining timer value

#1 Post by manjh » 22 Jun 2019, 12:02

for debugging purposes, I am looking for a way to look at the remaining values in my timers. Nothing elaborate with a script, just somthing I can do with a command when I log on to the ESP.
I expected a list of timers the System Variables overview, but the timers aren't there.
Am I missing something?

We can't directly read the system timer values. The workaround is to create a companion timer (via rules) that "countdowns" a dummy var every second.
