Create a new timer

Last updated on April 27, 2015 10:10

This method will create a new timer associated with a subdevice.




  • subdevice_id - the ID of the subdevice whose timers we should manage.
  • action - The action to run, normally set_target_temperature
  • value - The value to send to the action, for example temperature in degrees C, always a string
  • run_at - The time of the day to run, "hh:mm" (UK Time)
  • days_active - A bitmap of days of the week. 1=Monday, 2=Tuesday, 4=Wednesday, 64=Sunday


The created timer object will be returned, or a validation error.
