hello,

I have written a scheduler class and applied it on my required conditions. When my condition is satisfied I send mails as an alert.
And it worked.

Hi,
I am not sure what are your requiorments but for time based aleart you can use workflow rules.
click on setup--create--workflow and approval--workflow rule and create workflow as per your requirment and object.
add time based action --email aleart.

Let me know if you need any further help.

You can also use the Process builder, you define your criterias and you can creat a chatter alert if you want...
