Nodemcu v1 using blynk

What does your serial monitor say?

Update it to my example above.

Whoops!! You’re missing the important bit…

timer.run(); // run the timers! 

Thanks for the tip i will try it and let you know

Thank you guys for the great support @Jamin @GunnerTechTools the code is working like charm
i will post it here in case somebody need it

Thanks for sharing, I’m using the same and would like to know if its possible to add variable for the delay?

timer.setTimeout(5000, relays_OFF);// delay 15sec from first action and turn off both relays

I’d like to use the slider widget attached to V0 to take a time input in minutes converted to seconds for user by the timer

BLYNK_WRITE(V0){   // add a slider on V0 range 0 to 30 (minutes)
  Countdown = param.asInt();  // set variable as Slider value
  Serial.print("V0 Slider value is: ");
  Serial.println(Countdown);
  CountdownValue=(Countdown*60000);
  Serial.print("CountdownValue will be: ");
  Serial.println(CountdownValue);

You almost had it right. Try this instead.

BLYNK_WRITE(V0){   // add a slider on V0 range 0 to 30 (minutes)
  long CountdownValue = param.asInt() * 60000;  // take slider input and times by 60k to get millisecs
  Serial.print("V0 Slider value in mins: ");
  Serial.println(param.asInt());
  Serial.print("V0 Slider value in seconds: ");
  Serial.println(CountdownValue / 1000);
  Serial.print("Timer value in millisecs will be: ");
  Serial.println(CountdownValue);
  yourCustomTimer = timer.setTimout(CountdownValue, yourFunctionHere); // do you normal simpleTimer setup here using the same ID = yourCustomTimer 

Thanks @Jamin. Thats done it.
