      Really like this product. Have several throughout the house to operate indoor and outdoor lights. Random on during late night is a good feature.

      Quality item. Don't fit any and every outlet plate for the mechanism to go up and down to work. So far, zero. Contemplating calling a licensed Electrican. Really needed these to work. Also, not one of the four ordered had the supposively screw enclosed.

    • excellent product
      Verified Purchase

      This is a great timer switch for wiring where there is no neutral to wire a standard timer. It runs on batteries and mounts on top of the regular flip switch. when it reaches the set on/ off time, a little motor inside flips the switch on or off. There is no wiring required just one set screw that takes the place of the wall plate screw. The battery last about a year or more and only requires standard AA alkaline batteries

    • Perfect Alternative
      Verified Purchase

      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.

      Verified Purchase

      Ingenous device, easily programable. Installation a no brainer. Only drawback is that the device is only slightly bulky, but I'm pleased nonetheless. How could it be any simpler?

    • This product solved a long-standing problem.
      Verified Purchase

      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.

    • would be great, if it worked
      Verified Purchase

      I can't say that this is totally useless, but what do you call it when a device promises more than it delivers? Got half a dozen of these for my outside lights - they work for a couple of days, then the lights just stay on........ Sigh!

    • Concept is great but...
      Verified Purchase

      The inside mechanism does not rise high enough to turn on the switch. Need to modify it to make it work properly. Needs another piece attached to ensure it raises high enough to flip the light switch.
