About This Product

The Indoor Mechanical Vacation 2-Conductor Security Timer turns indoor lighting on and off at random times throughout the day. Have total peace of mind while vacationing. Use the security timer to turn your lamp on and off at random times twice a day to give your home a lived-in look and deter theft while you are away. It is easy to use because it is pre-programmed, just set the current time, plug in the device and turn it on. The vacation timer will do the work. There's a convenient manual override button which suspends timer operation, so when returning home simply select "outlet on" and your plugged-in device will operate by the switch rather than the timer. This timer has an instruction slot which stores the programming manual and features a warm neutral color pallet to compliment today's home interior. The compact design fits snuggly in your outlet without blocking additional outlets. Ideal for lamps, fans, holiday lighting or other 2-conductor appliances. This timer is compatible with compact fluorescent lighting, LED bulbs and CSA certified for quality assurance. The Woods brand of timers and home controls bring simplicity to your life, by maximizing convenience, security and energy savings.

Questions & Answers

1Question

Q:It says it turns light off and on at random times during the day. Does that mean it could be turning on a lamp at 2pm in the broad daylight? Doesn't sound like an energy saver to me.

Answer This Question

A:  It is randomly preset for the on/off times by the factory. It cannot be changed. The idea is it will go on and off at intervals, to make it look like people are going in and out of the room.

A:  It's a random timer preset to turn on electric items, at random times over 7 days. This keeps lights on and off in ways that makes it appear someone is turning them off and on. Buying multiple ones of these and putting in different rooms of the house can make burglars think twice about breaking in, because they can't know for sure if the house is empty or not. Thus the wording on this timer says vacation timer.

A:  You are able to have it do what you want. If you want to use daylight and/or night only lighting, it will do that. That might come in handy to someone who lives in a dark home and wants it to look like someone is home during the day. It’s a very flexible setting timer.

by|Feb 6, 2020

A:  There is some times during daylight hours, the idea is to use a low energy use light bulb. Do not connect high use items into this Woods timer.

by|Feb 5, 2020

A:  This timer is for the security and safety of your home when you are away. For example when you are on vacation you would plug in this timer into a light of your choice and the set to desired times. The idea behind turning the timer on & off twice a day using random security setting, is so that it appears that you are at home even when you are not. This saves energy because you are not having to leave a light on at all times when you are away.

    This timer will work ok to run a light when you're gone for several days and want it to look like there is someone turning lights on and off. The timer is set up with pre programmed on and off times . Each day has a different set of on and offs and they are some what at random times. I would have given it five stars if there was a way to change the settings, but there isn't. The only adjustment is to set the time of day and day of the week that it currently is. There is a switch for bypassing the timer as well, which is nice to have.

    My favorite home security product! This is a great, cost-effective way to enhance your home's security while you are away. A 7-day random timers outlet that will engage lighting in a way that looks as if someone is home. They thought of everything, a convenient slot on the side of the timer keeps the timing reference chart handy for reference - so you can refresh your memory before using it.

    This is a good quality mechanical timer. It works as advertised, it has a slot to store the instructions & it is easy to use, with only 3 steps. (after removing it from the packaging ). 1. Set the timer. 2. plugin it in. 3. plug in your light, radio, salt lamp, etc & your done! I have used this with my salt lamp for almost two weeks 24/7 & it works great.I also used it tent camping for a few days with LED color changing lights. I like the on-off times the timer operates. It is well constructed. You can change the timing by not setting your current time & set the timing to what you prefer. I intentionally brushed my arms & legs against it as I was walking past it & it did not change my settings.After doing that, I plugged it in behind a stand to keep us & our dogs from accidentally changing the timer. The hours on the timer could be more user friendly & in better detail with larger numbers, however you can easily set this timer as is. It is not a higher end timer but it is a great timer for the price & quality.

    This timer differs from a regular timer in that you do not have to set what time you want want it to turn on and turn off. All you have to do is set the current time on the timer and it does the rest. Once plugged in the timer goes off randomly at different times and turns your lights on and off there is no set pattern. This is extremely good when you are gone for a couple of days and it appears that someone is home because it does not go on or off at the same time every day. I would really recommend this timer.

    Very unique product. It is already programed to turn on lights or radio at random times of each day. You don't really need to do anything but plug it in. We liked it as retires we are home throughout the day, so when we do go out of town there is no routine pattern. We just turned it to the day of the week to start it and plug it in. I like the idea of using it on a radio I am going to have to get a second one.

    Impressive 7 day timer! I’m used to the old one day, “hope you can figure out how to push in the buttons for the right time and hope for the best kind of timer.” But this one is easy to “get” right out of the package! I also like that it comes with a pre-programmed week setting that turns the light on at various times during the week. These pre-set times are printed on a small piece of paper and stored in the side of the timer for reference (and I’ve included a picture of that.) You can also over-ride the preset times to work for your situation. I’m looking forward to having this in place when we take our next vacation.

    Woods Vacation Timer. I received this Woods Vacation Timer from Home Depot Seeds program to try out. It is a seven day timer with different times to come on. Each day has a different time to turn on and off, days also vary from one to three times for the lights to activate at random times. Only adjustment is to set to currant day and time, Times and duration of the light will be random. The Woods timer is rated for 15 amps, choose what you hook up as not to overload. I tried the Woods Vacation Timer on a spare bedroom table lamp for a week and it worked as advertised.

    This VACATION lamp timer, is unique in that you don't set when the lights will turn on or off. It does it "randomly" based on when the timers manufacturer placed "trips" to turn it on and off. This makes it easy to use because there is no programming necessary. However, the times it turns on an off seem kind of crazy, like in the middle of the night or during the day. It operates very quietly, and only makes a slight "click" when the light goes off. In the attached pictures, in the first one, you can see where the "trip" is contacting to turn the lamp on. Also in that pic, notice the random trips around the outside rim, which are at random intervals. Also, notice the time setting in the middle. In the second picture, you can see the back of the timer, which indicates that it IS NOT UL listed, but is instead listed by a for-profit company called CSA (some people consider this to be not as good of a listing!) It is made in communist China, for a U.S. based, family owned company, Southwire (who owns the Woods logo).

    There is always concern when you travel that someone will notice you are not home and break in. This great little timer turns on and off the lights or radio to make it appear you are indeed home. I like the way this can remain plugged in the socket at all times and switched over to timer as needed. I also like the fact the instructions can be stored in a little side compartment, who keeps up with all those instructions? It is nothing fancy but gets the job done!

    Well this 7 day timer works good.  I have to warn you though that you shouldn't use it on the only lamp in your bedroom if you are wanting to get some sleep. Dadgum thing turns the light on when your almost asleep. As you can see in the picture of mine there is a  little slot on the side for a pamphlet, which is the times that timer is set to come on. Did I read it? No. Just put tape over it so the paper would stay in it. The flash made the whole area kinda beige including the timer but it is white.  Very easy to set up just turn the dial to the time and plug it in. Has a handy switch to turn it to timer off mode.  Which I am using now so I can control the lamp. Great timer for living room or any place no one else is trying to sleep at. Con for this is you hear the clicking noise of the gears in it.
