Store SKU # 160669

The Maestro Countdown Timer helps you save money and energy by automatically turning off the lights and fans after a preset time. Using the Maestro Countdown Timer on bathroom exhaust fans can reduce the chance of a costly mold problem, and timers attached to garage lights can add an extra layer of safety when you return home at night. Use the large tap switch to turn the timer on and off, and use the rocker on the side to set the timer to the desired time-out option, anywhere from 5-60 minutes. Softly lit orange LEDs indicate the time remaining before turn-off. Save energy by using the Maestro Countdown Timer in closets, attics, basements, and other low-traffic areas to ensure the light is never left on for a long time. Coordinating Claro wall plates and accessories sold separately.

  • For use with incandescent and halogen bulbs only
  • Saves energy by automatically turning off a fan or light
  • Use with exhaust fans to reduce moisture, mold and mildew in bathrooms
  • Use with lighting to ensure lights are never left on for a long period of time
  • Controls a 3 Amp fan or up to 600-Watt and VA (5 Amp) of incandescent and halogen or magnetic low-voltage lighting
  • Tap on to start timer, touch rocker to adjust countdown time

Answer: 
Check out the product installation instructions here: http://www.lutron.com/TechnicalDocumentLibrary/03092903B.pdf
Per the instructions above: install one of these timers on the load side and swap out the other 3 way for an Accessory Switch. I've never used an Accessory Switch so I'm not sure how they are different than a standard 3 way switch.

Answer: 
a '3 Way' or 2 switches controlling one thing 'ceiling lights' requires a special switch with a 'Traveler' leg or lead. This is how one switch can be off in the up position one time and the opposite another. This is a "single' switch operation 'SPST' switch. An electrician could change your 3 way dual switches into a 1 switch control and then you could use this. Just one switch.

Answer: 
This particular timer would only be able to be used as a single pole control only. Lutron does offer the MA-T51MN-XX which would be able to be used in a 3-way application, along with a Maestro companion switch. When the companion switch is hit, the timer will start at the preset level of the main unit.

I would like to use this switch to control overhead lighting in a garage so the lights don't get left on indefinitely after leaving the garage. Product information sheet says switch won't work with fluorescent fixtures but will control magnetic low voltage loads. I'm confused.

Answer: 
Yes, it can be used to switch fluorescent lamp loads. 3 amps minimum, 4 amps with one side removed, 5 amps with two amps removed. Lamp wattage must be at least 5W. See the installation instructions for details: http://www.lutron.com/TechnicalDocumentLibrary/03092903B.pdf

To get determine steady state current draw of a lamp, divide watts by line voltage. For example, a 32W fluorescent tube using 120 volts AC would draw 0.27 amps. Note that a fluorescent fixture with a ballast -- especially a magnetic ballast -- will use slightly more current than the sum of the lamp current, the additional current is due to ballast loss. Check the specifications of the ballast to determine total current draw for a fixture with a discrete ballast.
For a garage application, I used a Lutron motion sensor switch with a delayed shutdown to control 3 ceiling mounted fluorescent fixtures with 2 T8 lamps each. The motion sensor needs to "see" the garage door opening but my install has been running fine for 3 years without issue. Turns on when the garage door begins to move after hitting the garage door opener button. Read Less

Answer: 
yes if the power draw of the fixtures being controlled is at least 40 watts or .3 amps at 115 VAC
A Lutron MA-T51MN might be a better choice as it will work with lower power draw devices

Answer: 
No, it can't be used when with fluorescents. It's because of the ballasts that fire up the bulbs. I tried and it failed with a competitive switch. LED, yes.. I am using it with that application.
The package states 3 amps.

Answer: 
This switch is not rated to power a heater it can only handle 600 watts which is most likely less than the power draw of a heater
Heaters generally require a thermostat to control them

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works great, but has a couple of important limitations The simple push button operation and easily adjustable timer duration (5 min to 60 at 5 min intervals with an additional "on" setting to disable the timer entirely) is great, and they look really slick with their little LED displays that count down as the time goes. However, you should be aware that they are best suited to incandescent bulbs or bathroom/ceiling fans. They do NOT work well with CFL or LED bulbs, because power is always running through the circuit. A CFL will constantly flicker very slightly when off, and an LED will flash like a strobe! Because of this, it is also important to pull out the little recessed switch at the bottom of the push button to kill the power to the fixture if you want to replace the bulb. Something that you should also know is that the timer will briefly turn the device off and back on when 1 minute of time remains. Depending on your application, that may not be a desired behavior and it cannot be changed. As long as you are aware of those limitations you should be extremely pleased with this product. April 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Timer Switch This product works well and exactly as represented. My only disappointment is that it was not offered in my preferred color, which would have been Light Almond. April 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great electricity saver! I am big on turning lights/fans off when leaving a room for a long time, so I installed these in a few locations throughout the house, and so far I have been very pleased with their performance, and the way they look. I usually choose the 30 minute setting, and it works as advertised. I don't have to worry anymore if I have forgotten to turn a bathroom fan off, while at the same time I know the fan is doing it's job removing moisture and preventing mold/mildew. I also save a small amount of change on my electric bill because things that don't need to be running forever get shut off at the appropriate time. March 17, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Check Watts/Amps of your Fan first The switch is okay, I just need to help other customers not make the mistake I made. Because I have a new fan which only uses 8 watts, this switch will not work with that fan so I moved the switch to an older fan in my house...and will hunt for a different switch for my new fan. Good product, wrong fan! April 14, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Timer for bathroom fan This timer replaces an existing Leviton LTB30 that stopped working. The product requires only 3 conductors compared with the Leviton LTB30 that required both neutral and ground. There is one difference in operation that i have noticed compared with the Leviton LTB30. As the timer counts down from one setting to another (e.g. 10min to 5min) there is a short moment when the fan will stop as the electronics of the timer will move to the next timer slot. February 2, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great timer switch I have a number of Lutron switches and have been very pleased with them. This timer switch replaced a standard single pole switch wired to a vent fan for a guest bathroom. The push-in terminals made the installation a snap, but there are also screw terminals if you need. The timer allows you to set it from 5 to 60 minutes, plus just on, using the rockers on the side, which are easy to see from the indicator lights on the front of the switch. I set this one for 10 minutes and it was accurate from my test. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was that the push plate on the front of the switch was upside down when I took it out the packaging. But luckily I was able to pop it off and flip it around. Overall this is a nice timer switch. March 22, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love these timers! I installed these timers in all of my bathrooms to control the ceiling fans. When you need to use the fan after a particular foul visit to the bathroom, just hit the button, the fan turns on for the selected time and turns off automatically. Easy! These are very easy to install and look great too. Lutron products never disappoint. December 13, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Lasted about two months Installed in bathrooms because the kids were always leaving the lights on. Both switches started to turn the lights on and off every two seconds even when the switch was placed on the on position and not timing down. September 6, 2015
