Hello everybody,

Task:
Turn on a GPIO every minute for 5 seconds.

Is installed:

Built ruls:

On start-gpio14 do
    Long Pulse, 14,1,5
endon

on Clock#Time = All,**:1 do
       start-gpio14

Problem:

The GPIO is not switched
Can you give me a tip?

Thank you

You're very confusing, GPIO 13 or 14?

That syntax will be triggered at every hour at minut 01, 11, 21....51

Not every minute.

Either use a timer or use the syntax **:** which will trigger every minute.

Thanks for the hint.

what does it look like if you want to trigger an event every 3 or every 8 minutes
Could you put some examples in the wiki? This could also help other users.

THANKS for your help

Clock # Time =

All, **: ** ==> every minute
All, **: ** ==> 1 1,11,21,31,41,51 minute
All, **: * 5 ==> 5,15,25,35,45,55 minute
All, **: 30 ==> 00 and 30 minutes
Mon, 7:30 p.m. ==> every Monday at 7:30 p.m.

All,% sunrise% ==> sunrise (*)
All,% sunset% ==> sunset (*)
(*) write under Tools / Advanced Settings / Location Settings

I have not yet understood the following:
What does it look like if you only want to trigger an event every 14 days on Monday?

or an event every 4 weeks on the first Monday?

Are there other options?

You would use dummy variables. And you can use clock together with timers. So it's really up to you what your plans look like. You have the week day number that you can use and for each Monday you add one to the dummy. When it's = 4 you execute the code. Next Monday you reset it to 1.
