PC Receive constant signal through timer

is there a way so when I toggle a switch, it will send a signal to a timer, and that timer will send both the repeating signal, AND a constant signal originating from the timer?

I am trying to setup a switch to make heart statues go in my arena, but I often forget to turn it on, and I end up forgetting to turn it on mid event/boss, so I would like to be able to have a light(that is not flashing on and off, nor the teeny-tiny indicator on the timer) to tell me if i have turned the timer on. As each time I exit the world, the timer turns off, so if i made it so the switch itself turned on the lights, they would stay on while the timer is off.

I just think it'd be cute when I turned the statues on, the campfires will switch on also.

Let me know if this is possible! Thanks!!

this is actually simple:

Use one color wire from switch to timer, that timer uses three other wires to turn on heart statues
Use a different color wire from switch to light to act as indicator that the timer is on (note, this will stay on even if the timers are off due to world reset)

I was hoping to find a solution that the lights would turn off when I reset the world

I came up with a reset timer. The input is a Player Above sensor placed at your spawn point, and the output is the green wire going to the gemspark light.

The idea is that the sensor unlocks a reset latch and starts a three second timer, waiting for an input from the 1 second timer. If the 3 second timer runs out, then the 1 second timer powering the statues must have been off. All this is to send a signal to the gate next to the lamp to reset it.

the color of the wire placed is dependent on the color of wrench used. if you've upgraded all the way to The Grand Design, there's a menu that can let you toggle what color of wires and/or Actuators you're placing and/or removing.
