Answer: 
Backing up Josh's response:
This timer apparently "leaks" some small amount of current when in its "off" mode, not enough to get an incandescent filament to illuminate, but enough to cause an LED to flash momentarily - about once per second with my fixture.
So no, this unit is not designed for LEDs - and I can only imagine that, over the course of a year, this switch would leak enough current when Read More

Answer: 
No, it cannot. I was using it to control some fixtures with LED bulbs and this switch would not turn them off completely. I called support and was told this switch will only work with incandescent bulbs; CFLs will not work either.

Can this be used for a ventilation fan?

This question is from 5-Amp In-Wall Digital Timer with No Neutral Wire
Asked by
Seattle, WA
Read all my Q&A
July 12, 2015
I have a "whole house ventilation system", which is fancy for an exhaust fan in the laundry room. Can I use this to cycle the fan throughout the day? It was on a regular light switch with load, line and ground wires. But I didn't know if whatever makes this incompatible with CFLs makes it incompatible with anything else.

Answer: 
NO. This timer requires the filament of a light bulb to work. This is why it only works on incandescent or halogen bulbs (in the instructions).

Customer Reviews

Rated 2.7 out of 5 by 113 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works well but hard to read The device was very easy to install. Three wires and a few twists of the nuts :) and your done. The programming was simple and I was able to complete three settings in a few minutes. The only problem I have is the display. It is quite small and is not back-lit. This makes viewing rather difficult but a magnifying glass will help. I think this is the least of the worries as once you set it you walk away and let it do it's thing. The nice feature is the ability to turn on & off the light by pressing the front panel. I was concerned about that operation and the concern has been nullified. September 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect little timer for outdoor lighting This replaced an older, mechanical version. Serves a good purpose of turning on/off outdoor lights at the proper times. Easily fit in a two switch outlet. And it gave us cause to replace the trim plate and spruce up the appearance with a rocker switch as well. May 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Timed security and peace of mind automatically This timer was easy to install in a three switch box and offers us security by turning on and off the entry and carriage lights at times we designate. We can set the timer for different times on various days of the week making the home appear to be occupied even while we are away. We were amazed at how effective it is and are delighted with the results of this easy installation on a panel housing two other regular switches. November 4, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Junk drawer product I see from the fine print in the programming manual this switch will not work with CFL or LED bulbs, and I understand it should not be used with any electric motor, but this really a useless switch. I tested it and when it is ON, I get 115v at the connected outlet, when it is turned completely off, I get 0v. That parts fine, but when the timer is on, but in an off period, there is 103v. For this reason I'd hesitate to connect it to any electronics. Also the timer doesn't work (no display of even the time) when there is not something plugged into it. Also the programming is needlessly difficult. Don't buy unless you have extra space in your junk drawer. November 29, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Love this timer! Easy to assemble and does the job it was purchased for. Programming is a little more complicated. YOU MUST HAVE written directions to program or go on line and look them up by Brand name, there is a convenient copy of instructions. First, push pgm button once to set the current time and day. Second, push pgm button twice to set auto on and off times and follow directions for which button to push to set. Don't forget to push 'enter' after each step or you will go around in circles. I suppose the other pgm's 2-4 is if you want other days set different times, for example for INSIDE use. I use mine for OUTSIDE lights only so I only needed to set pgm 1. I would like to set a time for spring and fall but haven't figured out how to do that if its for the same days (7). You can always override the timer by simply push on front shield in like a button, on and off. It's not obvious so I think some of these other reviewers may have been confused or didn't notice 'what is the on and off manual switch', again just simply push on front of unit. And you MUST HAVE THE DIRECTIONS to know 'which buttons' to use in setting time. The instructions are good and easy to follow, but if you just look at the buttons and try to set timer they are not self explanatory. Once its set it's wonderful! I have had mine for 6 months now and still happy with it except for losing the directions how to reset the timer for the now shorter winter days. But I would still recommend this unit for the value and looks. October 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product This a great product, works well. The only fault I have found is that the display is little hard to read. Not bright enought, that is the only reason I put one demerit on Quaility section. April 1, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Wish I could return it! Great concept, poor design. Very hard to program and confusing, thanks to some of the videos online. The timer worked for about 3 months and then continued to burn out bulbs (within minutes of installation). No changes were made at the source or by the switch. Timer is no longer sold at the store, only online (presently out of stock) and can't get my money back. When the timer is back in-stock, find something else. February 27, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Junk, you get what you pay for This switch worked for about 2 weeks and then the light was lit dimly only, like it was partially on. Had to buy another switch. Also there is no backlight or feedback to know if the light was turned on when you do it manually. Found that many times you push the button and the light would not work, had to keep pushing so if you cannot see it you have to go look each time to verify it is on. Spent $33 and bought a Honeywell Econoswitch RPLS740B. Thought I was saving money buying the $19 Defiant, never again! Honeywell is backlit, has a nice blue indicator when on, audible click when turned on, and automatic longitude/latitude setting for sunset makes it fool proof since it is the default setting.
