The Light Switch Timer is the perfect way to realistically light your home during the evenings whether you are out for the evening with friends, away on holiday, working late or just want to come home to a welcoming light. Helping you avoid being the victim of a break-in.
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
With a battery life of 18 months to 2 years
Nobody wants to come home after a fantastic holiday or a great night out to find their home has been broken into.
The Light Switch Timer will fit over any UK standard 1,2 or 3 gang Switch plate.
As the mechanical timer operates the switch in the same way you do with your finger it means there is no need to change the switch. The battery powered unit is capable of switching your lights on and off 10 times a day, for 18 months to 2 years before needing to be replaced.
You can also operates the lights whilst 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 also 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.
Allowing you to control your lights for individual days of the week, weekdays or the weekend so the lights are not coming on and off the same time every day.
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.
This energy-efficient, timer switch could also save you money whilst protecting your home. This smart use of energy will have a direct effect on your utility bills, as well as helping to protect the environment by reducing energy waste.
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!
Remember leaving visible lights on during the day may also alert potential burglars to the fact that you are out and won’t be back till late.

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.

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 ordered this because I wanted a product that was able to cope with LED bulbs and the electronic replacement light switches you can get won’t work with low wattage LED bulbs One small point to note is that it does project beyond the original light switch about 30mm. Brilliant idea which works well – highly recommended.
Something wrong with this post? Thanks for letting us know. If you can point us in the right direction...

A simple battery powered motorised switch mechanism which can be used for single,2 or 3 pole panel by adding or removing the wheels within the assembly, took minutes to install, slightly longer to set times as there are many options,now installed it works, note the motor operation is audible.

One of the best security devices I have ever bought very easy to install and very easy to set up and also a good price

We have 2 outside lights a nice porch light and a garage flood light. It always seemed a waste to have them both on at the same time. So I have this setup so that the floodlight comes on at midnight for security when the other one goes off. It has been working a treat for a number of weeks now with no issues and took seconds to setup.
This is a fantastic gadget which is very easy to use. It works on a normal light switch and turns the switch on and off according to preset times by means of a small wheel/cog powered by standard AA batteries. It allows you to time a main light to turn on and off when you are out avoiding the need to plug in a lamp. A much better idea, especially if you have pets that could knock a lamp over. You can easily override the timer by pushing an on/off switch on the unit. It is installed simply by slipping a plastic cradle over a light switch and the placing the timer unit in the cradle with the cog wheel lined up with the switch. The unit can stay in place continuously or be removed if desired. It does make a whirring noise turning the switch on and off but it is only a second or so of noise. There are 9 separate programme opportunities over 7 days allowing almost any combinations of timings on different days. There is also a random function which turns the light on in the night at random times for about 3 minutes each time. This is useful if you are away as it mimics someone getting up in the middle of the night for a comfort break. I would suggest not using this feature if you are at home otherwise the noise might disturb you. The unit can be adjusted to move 1, 2 or 3 cogs at the same time depending on how many rocker switches are on the light control.
