I have a light in the house that I wanted to turn on during the hours that I am not there so I got this timer so it could do that. And it does work well, I've had this timer for over a month and it does the job. I only had to plug in, set the time on the on and off and set the time on it. It only takes 2 prong outlet just so you know and the light that I put on was nowhere the 15 amp max it holds but it is nice to know that you can go up that high. it is meant for indoor just as stated so I did keep it inside. so far it works as it should. Oh and you can turn it on manually if needed to
I have used timers over the past several years for various reasons...Christmas decor, turning on lamps daily, outdoor decor, indoor decor, etc. I have bought several brands and by far believe the Defiant has been the easiest to use & most dependable, $4 for the single plug (I use this 90% of the time more often, $10 for the double plug.) Is it 100% perfect? Nope, nothing is! Of the approx dozen throughout my house that I use DAILY & then add seasonal timers, Defiant is my #1 go to timer. I have had to return 1 Defiant timer over the past few years that was a lemon & Home Depot didn't question me at all, just swapped it out. Even if HD hadn't swapped out the defective timer, it STILL would not have kept me from continuing to investing in the Defiant timer. If I give a decorative gift that requires electrical power, I always tie on a Defiant timer!!
Very easy to program. I love this thing. Set it and forget it. Great for turning noisy radios and lights on when traveling. I love that it also has an override switch to keep the light (or device) powered on when you want to use the light (or device) during non-programmed times.
Most inexpensive timer in the store. Easy to operate and most importantly it is quiet. You can't hear any ticking and when the light turns there is no offensive click. This is the second one I have purchased in the past month. Throwing my noisy ones away. Highly recommend this one.
