Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 26 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Installed easily worked well for vacation We were going on vacation for two weeks and I wanted to control my outside lights. I've tried photocells that screw into the fixture, but due to shadows my lights stayed on. I considered purchasing a timer switch for a more permanent solution, but chose these timers. They install easily -- remove the existing cover, screw in the backplate, then attach the unit. Less than five minutes. I used on a single switch with no problem. However, the double switch was more challenging. Not wanting to have a switch exposed, I covered the second switch with a single switch cover. This resulted in a slight gap, but the unit functioned without issue. October 30, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worked beautifully for a year. It worked perfectly for a year. Then when we recently went back from a holiday and found out it did not function as supposed to be. Changing the batteries did not help. Resetting it and testing it several times and eventually we found out it was now defective. When you want to override the timer, pressing the + button should display "ON", "OFF", "AUTO" by pressing in sequence. But now it only go from "ON", "AUTO" and never show "OFF". We are definitely not happy as it is basically useless now after one year of use. March 2, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Timer is easy to install and it works! My electrician wasn't able to put in a conventional timer because the electrical box was too shallow. Rather than having him do an expensive replacement, I found this one. It can be installed on top of the switchplate with just a screwdriver and it is narrow enough to fit on a double wall switch. You can set the light to come on and off twice in 24 hours. October 29, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by great concept I already had one that worked well on first try and needed a second one for back patio light. Quality control seems to be an issue as I had to go through 2 before I found one that worked and that only when I was able to jiggle it a bit once attached (not tighten the screws all the way). One would turn on but not off and the other off but not on. I finally got the one to turn on by jiggling it a bit to slightly change its position on the base plate and better line up the part that flips the switch lever. The concept is great and if you get one that works both on and off right away it's great but I had to return one before I got a second one that I was able to make work. The instructions are clear but you have to read them carefully, especially the part about ensuring it's set to AUTO. All in all I'd recommend this but be aware you may have to try a few before you find one that works both ways. Home Depot is good about returns of the ones that don't work. One of the two I have is noisier than the other but even the noisy one is worth having so I can come home to a lighted porch at night. February 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Item Use on almost any toggle type switch. I like being able to easily move it around when needed for security, holidays etc. Display is not illuminated but so what? Works fine. January 6, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ingenious This product is making sense and that's the reason I purchased two of them Power outage does not affect the programed timer. The price was right, the service was great , and "NOW" I am happy. The now in quotes is because it took me over 4 hours to compute this gadget. The instructions are confusing and eventually I had to go see a friend of mine and we figure out why it will not work after setting it for on and off .The secret is very simple.HERE IT IS. In Instructions, after you follow direction to program the "ON"and "OFF" setting make sure to read #7 where it tells you to "PRESS + button and AUTO appears on the left corner. Once I knew that It took me one minute to program the timer. So because the instructions were not very clear I deducted from a perfect score. Great gadget, makes good sense, get it if you need it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great idea...easy installation Timer was easy to install and programming not too difficult. It works easily on a single pole switch, but the 3 way switch is tricky and did not work until I loosened the two screws below the batteries. Now it is working fine. Great idea.....i'll give an update in time. Robert December 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works with any type of bulb, it actually flips the switch As you know, finding incandescent bulbs is difficult now days. I was looking for a "timer" to turn on/off my porch light, a CFL bulb. No wired in timers work with CFLs; disappointed I was ready to leave the store when this 'switch flipper' caught my eye. Easy to install and set on/off times, it's a bit on the bulky side and operates on batteries, which are easy to change. Gets the job done! There is a small moving 'lever' inside that physically moves your light switch up or down - simple and functional. January 21, 2014
