Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Product - Does what it says I wanted something that could control the light switch in my mother’s room, instead of a plug in lamp timers and this does the job perfectly. It is very quick and easy to install and programme and you can remove when no longer needed. I was always worried that the old plug in lamp timer was a bit of a fire risk e.g. the lamp falling over, and am glad I can now safely use the ceiling light in a controlled way. I'm really pleased with this buy, it such a simple idea I can't believe I've not seen these before. We have it fitted in my mothers bedroom and its good that it can control switches with multiple gangs. My mother is in her 60's and can over-ride the light switch timer whenever she wants with ease. Brilliant!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clever little gadget I bought a few of these as they are the only automatic switch i could find that would work with LED lights. Fitting them is amazingly simple and takes a few minutes. A few minor negatives, they are noisy in operation, the blurb states illuminated switches but you would need to be an owl to see them and it says it works with a 3 gang light switch but will only switch 2 of the switches. Even so this is a very inventive product simple in design and does the job well. Its good to see there is still a place for electro mechanical devices in todays electronic world - recommended.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Easy to fit but noisy This device is easy to fit and set up and has the advantage of not having to break into the existing light switch wiring when doing so. The programmer is also easy to set up. As the device is using the existing light switch there is no hassle with being restricted to the type of lamp you are using; i.e. LED, tungsten, etc. My main complaint with the device is the noise it makes when it switches on and off. The motor drive which operates the roller to push the switch over is quite noisy and, if you were a light sleeper you may be disturbed by it, if it is operating while you are asleep. The fact that the switch is mounted on a stud wall also makes this worse as the sound travels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product I bought one of these to control my lights for when I am away on holiday and would recommend these if you want to have lights coming on and going off when your away. Seeing as there are no reviews I thought I would share mine. The best way to describe is like a timer plug fits into a socket in the wall this fits over the light switch on the wall. you ft the bracket by loosening the screw on the switch a few turns, tighten them back up and your done! A small wheel then rolls up or down the switch physically pressing the switch on and off. It does make a whirring noise for a couple of seconds. The on off buttons allow you to turn the lights on and off manually or you can even remove the unit and use the light switch normally with the bracket in place. Programming was similar to any 7 day digital timer . I like that on a 2 or three gang switch you can choose to program one or two of the switches. I can see this will soon be a permanent fixture in the winter as the wife likes to have a light on when she gets home - Its brilliant

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended. "This is such a simple but clever device; an absolute doddle to fit and easy to program -- I also really like the random overnight (between 1am and 5am) mode. We were burgled before we got one of these devices, no doubt because our house was pitch black at the time -- no more! Even just having it turn the porch light on and off as a welcome home is a simple but great improvement. Having more than one in different rooms really beats having lamps on timers. Highly recommended."

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unconventional use but does the job I have an immersion heater you have to flick the switch manually to turn on and get hot water i fitted this little gadget over the switch (the top section of the back plate could do with being a bit narrower i had to alter it so it fitted correctly) but that said i now have a simple reasonably priced solution to comming home to a nice hot tank of water for a shower after work. Easy to fit (ish) easy to program a perfect solution to my problem if slightly left field of the manufactures intended use for security. I am happy.. 4 stars because you cant easily alter the depth of the back case (to fit over differnt thicknesses of light switch) and i had to alter the back plate to fit round a different type of switch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Random lighting problem sorted! I have a light sensor light at the front of my house which I like to leave on during the dark winter nights so I can see to get the key into the front door. The problem is that the sensor light is too sensitive and switches itself on during cloudy days. Hence when I get home from work the front of the house is in total darkness because the light has been on all day when it should have turned itself off. This light switch timer is the best thing since sliced bread! It is so easy to install with simple timer options. Its also nice that I did not have to spend money calling an electrician to fit it. So now the light at the front of the house will turn on and stay on when I want it to, and turn off when I want it to without interference from cloudy skies or other lights inside the house. I am going to buy a few more for the other light switches. Fantastic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy peasy!!!!! What a simple but great solution to timing light switches. Going to probably buy another couple. Only thing you don't get told is that the timer requires needs 2 x AA battery to operate, but other than was up and working within 5 minutes of postman delivering.

Is cradle expandable as my three gang switch is much larger than this unit.

Asked by: Rosebel
It's not expandable I'm afraid , fits only standard sockets.

I have successfully fitted this switch time, however, it will switch on the light but fails to switch them off because the controller wheel does not touch the switch. I've used the n plastic inserts, no joy. Any suggestions?

Asked by: Culjeet
Unfortunately, it sounds like this may not be a suitable product for the switch you are using it on.

Ok let's try how thick is the plastic. I don't mean the dimensions of the product.

Asked by: Tracie
Unfortunatley the thickness of the plastic is not specified by the manufactures .
Answered by: darren cordon

I have two sockets close together. I need to know the thickness of the plastic to ensure it will fit between them. (I did try qualifying previous question but wasn't able to)
