Timer2 question (Read 6319 times)

Hi guys,

I'd like to know if it's possible to use multiple timers using hardwaretimer2 library.

The point is to have several led strips on for a specific time, each with it's own time and combine that with a pir, so that when a time is over, the specific led strip would turn off.

Is it ok to use this timer or should I use a RTC and compares start and end times for each led strip?

Thanks in advanced.

With Timer2 only one, but you could use several variables to keep track of each event and use the millis() command as in http://wiring.org.co/learning/basics/timerblink.html

Yep I use one global variable called systemTimeMillis in honour of java, then reference that in my code.
