countdown timer

This code provides an example of a Countdown Timer.

The action consists in setting the variable with the required number of seconds and after running the code, the time counts down. After the end, a notification is displayed.

#include <LiquidCrystal_I2C.h>        // library for LCD 1602 
LiquidCrystal_I2C LCD(0x27, 16, 2);  // assign a name to the display


int runTimer = 1;
int runFor = 900;
int buzzerPin = 13;
int relayPin = 4;
int data = 0;

void setup() {
  pinMode(buzzerPin, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(relayPin, OUTPUT);
  LCD.begin();
  LCD.backlight();
}

void loop() {

  digitalWrite(relayPin, LOW);
  LCD.clear();
  LCD.print("TIMER=");
  //start timer
  timer();
  } else {

  }

  }

  }
