Essential Info

Replace any wall switch with a timer switch, and you'll save energy by scheduling lights or appliances to run only for limited times. The Heavy-Duty Digital 7-Day Timer Switch can control loads of up to 15 amps, so not only is it powerful enough to control fluorescent or incandescent lights, it can even control appliances, such as your stereo or air conditioner. This easy-to-install switch converts any wall switch to a programmable timer that can set up to 42 weekly on/off settings, up to 6 per day. A wall plate is required and sold separately.

    This versatile timer replaces any standard indoor wall switch, controlling indoor or outdoor electrical loads up to 15 amps. Operate a light or appliance manually or program the device to turn on and off at any specific time and day of the week, at a specific time every day, at a specific time on weekdays or a specific time on weekends. You can even set the light to "random" operation for a lived-in look when you're away from home.

    The Heavy-Duty Digital 7-Day Timer Switch can replace any regular or 3-way light switch. Memory guard protects against power failure, and a battery is included for backup power.

    BRIAN -- aurora, CO   10/29/2011
    Love this timer switch. It was very easy to install and has worked perfectly so far. Automatic adjustment of on/off times as the length of daylight changes makes this a great solution. Saves energy, increases safety and makes my life easier... win, win and win! The only thing I would change is maybe a larger backlit display as it can be a little hard to see when setting up the program (you only need to do this once, so not a big problem).
    WILLIAM -- riverside, CA   2/7/2011
    I bought 3. The product is great but they are old (2006) and all came with dead batteries. The batteries are 3 volt CR2 and expensive. With new batteries they functioned well.
    BROOKE -- springville, UT   12/8/2010
    Works great. Easy to install. I like the manual override so I can turn the light on/off early but still have the timer. I was disappointed that the battery it shipped with was dead. This caused problems with the device setup...because the device displays the time but won't allow you to go into setup mode when the battery is low. Once I finally guessed that the battery was "almost dead" and ran to the store for a new battery the setup went just fine. I would like this device even better if the it could hook into the house AC power and use the battery as a backup power source. Hopefully the battery lasts a long time...because I don't like changing batteries on devices that are made to be "set it and forget it".

    Having tried several timers from the local hardware store, all of which required three wires and did not work; this one was the fastest one to install and programming was a breaze. Have had the switch in place for over a month now and no problems what so eve
    Kevin -- dallas, TX   2/6/2010
    Certain batches of this timer switch were RECALLED in 2009 by Intermatic. Our unit quit after working perfectly for 4 months. I will not be replacing this switch with another one since as one of the other reviewers so correctly commented, it's battery driven. The controls are battery operated. When the relatively expensive CR2 battery dies the unit does not work. As you can probably imagine, you also loose your programmed settings. You see many 5-star ratings from others, and that's what I would have thought for the first four months that I owned this unit, but not anymore. I would avoid this battery-operated switch or be prepared to infrequently replace batteries and re-program this unit. My local Home Depot stopped selling Intermatic timer switches after the 2009 recall problem. This is likely a model to be avoided.
    KATHIE -- west jordan, UT   1/14/2010
    Works great!
    NAOMI -- blairsville, PA   12/3/2009
    As far as what it does, it is excellent and the quality is very good. I just wish programming such a little device were a simpler when setting individual days and times.
    TERRY -- towson, MD   11/29/2009
    I purchased 2 2509As and couldn't be more satisfied. Because of some tricky wiring in my 60-year-old house, I had an electrician install the units. But I had no trouble programming them for auto operation and am now enjoying the idea of never having to reset them thanks to the astronomic feature and battery backup in case of power outages. All that and they even accomodate CFL bulbs. Great product!
    JAMES -- rush, NY   10/2/2009
    More reliable than the X-10 product that it replaced.
    KEVIN -- phoenix, AZ   6/1/2009
    Love this product! Extremely easy to install and program. Highly recommended to those who don't want to mess with turning on/off lights every day. (I.e. porch/patio lights, driveway lights. etc.)
    DAVID -- albuquerque, NM   12/19/2008
    This switch is perfect for applications quiring variable programming times. One note: You have to be careful when programming. Wach program correcsponds to one on/off time NOT one pair of on/off times. Trivial but Ive been bit in the butt more than once.
    EMILY -- sedona, AZ   9/24/2008
    So far this timer has been great. Installation was easy and setting it was also easy. I especially enjoy the fact that it adjusts on and off times according to the season. I had an old timer that I had to always reset as sunrise and sunset times changed. This new one is much less problematic.
    NICK -- versailles, KY   9/19/2008
    This is the second switch I've installed without any problems.
    FRANKLIN -- shelby twp, MI   9/7/2008
    Excellent Timer. A little difficult to program at first, but with practice all went well.
    EUGENE -- george town, XX   4/14/2008
    Thanks Smarthome for your 2509A 7-Day timer switch it worked excellent and your delivery time was excellent thank you again! i am looking forward of doing more business with you guys.
    RONALD -- houston, TX   4/4/2008
    The timers are exactly as described on the website.
    MicroV -- carlsbad, CA   3/15/2008
    Uses a non-rechargeable, expensive battery for the control circuit. Battery does not last long (a few months), and when it fails, the circuit is no longer controlled. First Leviton control that ever disappointed me.
    HENDERSON -- bronx, NY   2/4/2008
    Thank you for your inquiry. Installation was easy. It is set to go on at dusk and off at sunrise. My cocern is that it goes off and on at more than thirty minutes outside the time the newspaper gives for sunrise and dusk.
    ARTHUR -- nekoosa, WI   2/2/2008
    It works as advertized
