Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works exactly as advertised! The only problem I had was my 50 year old house had about 6 inches of extra wire stuffed in the box and 5 lines joining together. Because these units, like GFCI units have such a large mass behind the plate, I had to spend time removing the light switch, trimming back wires and reinstalling the light switch and installing the timer. All together about 1.5 hours install time. But it powered up immediately and does a perfect job, not to mention the neat blue lcd panel and remembering the last setting by switching it off and back on again. Would definitely recommend this unit and will be doing the same job to my other full bath and my half bath with the very same unit and gang panel. BTW, IMHO, the Home Depot app is the bees knees of useful apps. It shows you exactly what aisle and bay your desired product is in before you ever get to the store. The store maps are store and city specific. For someone with bad knees I know which door to park by and how far I have to travel to get what I am there to buy, including planning the most efficient route for multiple items! Way to go Home Depot! March 18, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great switch for whole house fans I run my whole house fan based on night time temps, so I needed a countdown timer switch with more adjustability than the typical switches on the market. This one nails it. Once the evening temperature dips down below the temperature inside, I turn this little guy on and set the timer to go off at sunrise. It gives me the option to make minute adjustments based on the change of daylight throughout the summer months. March 6, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great countdown timer. This countdown timer was so simple to install and to operate. I am no where near an expert in electrical work (just a home owner) but it took me about 15 min to install this, including removing old countdown timer. I am using it for a bathroom fan and thought the blue screen was a cool touch. I'll be purchasing more for my other bathroom/fans. This one was a trial run. December 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I would buy another one! I have had one of these installed for months and we love it. I installed this COUNT DOWN TIMER before the vanity receptacle because every time we would leave the house my wife would have me turn around so she could check to see if she had unplugged her curling iron. So now she just taps the up arrow and the count down begins. No need to worry about it after we leave. This neat little device also doubles as a night light with the backlit screen. There are a couple of negative reviews posted here. ..... I would put money on it that it was totally the consumer's misunderstanding of what he/she was purchasing as mines has been flawless from the day of installation December 26, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Product. Interface is tough if you change times often. Great little product. Its a one touch if you continually turn on a switch for a specific duration. Its great if you want to dial in the exact amount of hours and minutes. It always uses the last time set as the default. Where it fall short is using it for a say a basement light when you want it on for 1min sometimes and a hour other times. By no means is it horrible, but it takes 10sec to set in the right time, then your good. If you have to do this a few times a week, it takes away from its quick usefulness. Great for a pet light, or porch light. March 4, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Worked for Whole House Fan This timer was easy to wire for a whole house fan. It would be nice if it had the amperage ratings on the outside of the package as well as the wiring diagram so you could make sure it is compatible. Worked well and easy to use. September 9, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works Light a Dream Got this to help me remember to turn off the backlight after walking the dog. Can't tell you how many times a 16 min walk turns into the light being left on overnight. It was driving me crazy until I saw this. Install was easy took about 10 min. Programming was easy. Only thing I didn't like about it was a On override. You have to set a time for the light to stay on. Yet I can say that is not a major thing, but I would like to just trust that I might remember to turn it off. Also remember you need to have the right plate for it. Or you could find yourself going back to the Home Depot. You know the feeling, go in for a wall plate, walk out with a new riding mower!!! April 20, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Timer This timer isn't worth the instruction paper that comes with it. You have to be home each day to activate it. Why wouldn't this timer be automatically activated at the time you initially set it up every day???? November 16, 2014
