Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
For years, I tried different timer switches to control our outside lights. I tried everything--even a switch connected to a wireless network. Nothing worked well; some didn't work at all--in part because it's a very tight squeeze in the switchbox. This product solved the problem quickly and simply. It's a snap to install (no wiring) and just plain works. I even like the fact that it makes a little buzz when it operates--it's a reminder that the lights are going on or off. I've very glad I found this.
Not all of my light switches have updated wiring. Therefore I could not install a programmable light switch. How is it installed? The AutoChron Programmable Wall Switch Timer screws into the bottom of the light switch making it secure. Remove the bottom screw from you switch plate, pull open the front panel on the timer switch and you'll line an opening with the bottom opening on the face plate. Screw the timer switch into position.
How does it work? A plastic piece sits over the switch. Program the on and off time for every day of the week as a whole or individually. When the timer turns on and off, the plastic piece moves up and down, flipping on and off the switch. Yes, there is the sight of a white box sitting on your light switch. However, I think it's a perfect alternative for programming my front porch light to turn on and off.
The switch timer runs on batteries.
I own 3 of these babies. They are BASIC to install (just screw them on top of the existing switch). They are sortof noisy (just the noise of the mechanism moving up or down to turn the switch on/off). But I love these, easy to program, can have multiple programs. Highly recommend.

My neighbor said she could always tell when we were on vacation because the kitchen lights were constantly on. This product took care of that. Did have to remove the switchplate to allow the timer to get the necessary leverage to manipulate the switch. Works great.
I enjoy having the front porch light come on and go off by me setting the time. This is as improvement over the smaller one I had that fit (hard wired) into the box. Much easier to mount on the outside with just one of the plate screws and no wiring needed because it turns your own switch on or off. Also the bigger dial is a plus for these computer aged eyes. It sticks out a little way but no more than a alarm does.
Very good product. Most of the on/off switches are very stiff. After a while the mechanical parts will take its toll. The comapny should come up with an idea to recharge the battery without replacing it. I will look for a very soft to the touch switch, hopefully this will help.
