Converting Blynk legacy TIMER to Blynk 2.0 AUTOMATIONS

my Blynk legacy app included a timer widget which, in a period of time, which I set, would bring a virtual PIN ON and then return to OFF. With the introduction of AUTOMATION functions I am having trouble replicating the function, I ask for your help to solve this problem, thanks

What are you trying to achieve exactly ?

from my TIMER widget I set a START time and a STOP time and in that space of time a virtual PIN was brought to ON and then returned to OFF

You can create two automations, the first one will turn on the light for example at 7 PM, and the second one will turn it off at 9 PM. or you can use wait until, something like this

Thanks for you prompt reply. I donโ€™t understand why I am forced to enter a start time and an end time when these always vary because set by me in the TIMER widget. And then where do I define the DATSTREAM to be associated with the AUTOMATION? Thanks

immagine

during the creation of AUTOMATIONS which option to choose?

Schedule.

Ok thanks, Iโ€™ll working on it. Iโ€™ll tell you the results

Thanks John for you support. It works now, regards
