The Light Switch Timer - The easiest way to realistically light your home during the evenings whether you are out with friends, away on holiday, working late or just want to come home to a welcoming light. Helping you keep your home safe.
Easy DIY installation in 1 minute
Absolutely no wiring is required at all
Works on any type of light bulb
Can be used to control 1, 2 or 3 gang switches
Long battery life - Upto 2 years of daily use
The Light Switch Timer simply fits over any standard 1,2 or 3 gang light Switch allowing you to programme your main lights to turn On and Off multiple times a day.
There is no wiring involved and you do not need to change your existing switch. The timer simply sits over your light switch and takes less than a minute to install. There is a 30 second video at the bottom of the page.
It's always nice to come home to a welcoming light on in the house and nobody wants to come home after a fantastic holiday or a great night out to find their home has been broken into.
You can still operates the lights when you are home using the on and off buttons meaning you can leave the unit in place all winter and never have to worry about your lights when you get back after dark.
The Light Switch Timer is approved & recommended by The Police through their Secured by Design crime prevention initiative – in recognition of its effectiveness and ability to reduce the risk of burglary.
Burglars often use the tell tale sign of a lamp on a timer as a sign that you may be out or on holiday. The Light Switch Timer is more realistic as it uses the main lights in your home. It can also be used for external security lighting, or on the porch as a welcoming light when you get.
The 24-Hour, 7-Day Digital Timer enables you to program your lights to switch on/off at specified times, over individual days or across a combination of days.
You can set up to 9 different program combinations allowing you to recreate usual activity in the home whilst you’re away.
A random feature – which will turn the lights on and off for a short period at random times during the early hours of the morning.
The unit can be installed on switches with one, two or three switches (gangs as they are called). It even allows you to select which of the switches you want to operate on the timer by simply installing or removing the control wheels at the rear of the unit.
Programming your lights to only come on when required can also save you money. Not leaving lights on when not required will help the environment too.
Remember burglars don't have day jobs - Leaving a visible light on during the day alerts that you are out and won’t be back till late.
Leaving your lights on during the winter months and running just one 100 watt bulb for 7 hours a day with electricity prices at 11p per kWh would cost over £14 pounds. And produce over 50KG of CO2 Emissions in one year!

The Light Switch Timer is not compatible with:
The Dimensions are Height 130mm * Width 95mm * Depth 53mm
A: Yes on double or triple gang switches you can place either one or two or three control wheels on the switches you want to operate. So you can choose to only operate one switch on a three gang switch.
A: You will not be accessing or exposing any wiring during the installation process – it is however, always a good precaution before attempting any installation to turn off the electricity supply at the main fuse box during installation of the cradle.
A: First check the wheels go up & down when the on off button is pressed.
Ensure the wheel is installed in the correct slot for the switch you want to operate.
After you have checked the above you may need to install the small the “n” shaped plastic insert into the cradle before reinstalling.
The unit should now successfully operate your switch.
Should you still have trouble just get in touch.

Ensure the unit is set to run in Auto mode.
Pressing and holding the Hour Button for five seconds will switch between AUTO & Manual.
A small black line on top of the word “AUTO” means the Auto mode is not running.
A: Yes, that is the great thing about the Light Switch Timer, it works regardless of the light bulbs you use.
Great little machine this. Easy to program, many program options and easy to fit (no wiring to mess with). Enables you to time light switches to come on and go off.
Such a great product. So easy to install and use. We use it daily, had mine installed for the past 6 months and it has worked flawlessly.
This timer is easy to fit and reasonably easy to program. The instructions are written in good English (not a foreign translation) and take you step by step through the programming sequence.

I bought this product recommended by my electrician. It has never worked properly since I had it. It will switch on obscure times and no switch off at all. When I try it it appears to work. But I’ve just discovered why it fails. When it switches off or in it does not go the whole way. Change batteries but it still sticks. Sometimes going off and sometimes switching on. Result lights left on all day and night Can’t attach picture will only accept from computer not my phone
