4200 Timer Examples?

#1
Just poking around the software for my new 4200DL. I notice that you can assign timers to buttons and inputs. What are some examples of where these would be used?

You could use it for a gunlock, if you tapped into the horn, or horn ring circuit you could set a timed input for so many seconds which you could activate another mode on the lightbar and/or mode on lights for a different pattern to help clear intersections.

I use a timed input as a shut down timer. I like using the 4200 this way over something like a ChargeGuard because if it fails the equipment attached to it will still turn on with the ignition and is way cheaper than a ChargeGuard because you just need a relay. You have to make sure though your ignition source can handle the load if you use the timer circuit for anything other than the 4200.

I've also considered using it for a Rumbler type siren.

I am trying to set up a timer so my 4200 controller stays on for 10 mins after i shut off the ignition, but it does not seem to work properly. the head goes off when i turn off the ignition. the head will stay on only if i have a button activated.
