Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BWAS Great time saver, utility saver, safe lighting.
I've used this time down for several years in my workshop for exterior lighting. . Needed to install another for my deck lighting, installed right by the patio door.
Why is this not carried in store? First one was, second one had to order on line.
Allows never to forget turning off lights. Plan to use another in the bathroom.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by eicas Very Nice Switch
I bought the product some months ago. It has performed as expected without a problem.
I read about the lights blinking every 20 sec when timer is off.
My unit does not do that. When switch is off all LEDs remain off all the time.
One feature I like and that my unit does have is the ability to permanently turn the LEDs on while the switch is operating the fan. This is accomplished by Holding the upper two buttons (5min and 15min) at the same time for about 5 sec or until all LEDs flash. That will reprogram the LED of the selected timer to stay on while fan is running.
Again, it may be that this switch is a previous version that is somehow redesigned????

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sarkazein Works as expected
This little timer works like it should, and it's about a 10 minute install, so there's not a lot of downtime. Additionally, it fits the Lutron wall plates, which was important to me as I recently replaced all the standard switches in my house with paddle style switches. The only thing to note here is that you need to wait about a minute or so before it works. It has to charge first. It does say this in the directions, but who reads those?! :)
I thought I had done the wiring wrong. It turns out I didn't allow enough time for it to charge. Beyond that, it fits the bill exactly. Now my bathroom fan isn't on 24/7, which was the desired end result.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Gordo Flashing lights are useless and will drive you crazy
This product is over-engineered in a bad way. Each small button has a little blue LED next to it that lights up when that time is selected. That's a good feature. The problem is that when the switch is off, those LEDs flash very brightly once every 20 seconds. This switch was already installed in the master bathroom when I moved in, and the flashing lights keep me from falling asleep at night.
I think the point of that flash is to tell you what time duration was previously selected, but who's going to wait 20 seconds to learn that? Also, the flash is so fast, that it's easy to blink and miss it. So it's basically a useless feature that interferes with smooth interaction with the device.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Remark The right switch for the right application
This timer switch works really well with small electoral motors, i.e. bath fans and fountain pumps. Beware of others.

Product works as expected. Using this for a bathroom fan and this application is perfect for that.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MC Great timer for the $
We have kids and this is a great solution to keeping the fan running after a bath, etc and not having to worry about shutting it off. It also replaced an older rotary timer which was getting stuck. We already have these styles of switches, but if you don't you'll need to consider getting the toggle-types so the plates will work.
I was a bit concerned after reading some of the negative reviews about the light (blinking) that is emitted but they must have fixed it as I have 3 and none do it that I can see. Installing is easy, but I've experienced that they don't want to work right away...almost like they need some power for a minute or 2 then everything is fine.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Rivi Nothing but issues. tried 3 of them. 3 strikes
Lots of people seem to be getting good ones but I have tried 3 and none of them will work after the initial charge.
as other say, you apply load (power) back to the circuit and all the lights go on and then they all go off (as per instructions) and you wait a minute for the timer to charge. Well, I've waited a minute, and then up to an hour but none of the buttons work. oh, and no light on the "5 min" which instructions say should be on after the initial charge.
Tried holding bottom button for 5 seconds to "force on" but nothing.
1st one I bought was opened and re-taped at HD. Replaced by HD and second one was also opened. Second one would not even perform the initial "all lights on" when power first applied. Went to HD again and replaced and this replacement i see also has the packaging open.
3 strikes with this product. Very disappointed as there is a 2 hour and 4 hour setting which is great as sometimes you need more than 60 minutes.
NOTE : I've been doing electrical for years as a home owner. Yes, in all 3 cases my ground wire is good. Also, all i've got is LEDs in a room, not a 20AMP fan or something.
I now have to take the third defective unit back.
In my opinion, don't waste your time. I've got to try to find another product now :-(
