Loop timer not behaving as expected

last night I setup a loop timer and it's not working quite right.  I have the switch ON last night

it seemed to ignore the 22:00 "start" and skip right to 5:00 where it turned off, then on, then off, all in 1 minute.


did I do something wrong?


figured it out, it's very unintuitive labeling.


the top section is the repeat interval, and the delay section is how long to do it for.


for instance, if you want it on for 2 hours then off for 1 hour, you'd put 3 hours in the top with Closed, then 2 hours in the Delay with Open.

Thanks Chris! I agree very unintuitive! Finally figured out how to use it after your comment.

Thx, Chris helped me figure out on how to set this. The UI is bad. The main screen should have feed back on the LOOP TIMER settings. Anything to show it's going to fire. And the LOOP command is hidden. Have a LOOP icon on the main screen with the Schedule / Timer icons.


30 at restart cycle OFF

check on 25 change status ON

Gets 5 on in a 30 min cycle.

Have they changed this now? I was confused, read your post but mine doesn't have a "delay section" I've got "restart cycle" and below that "after" and below that a box to select a date.
