Essential Info

There has never been a home timer like the AutoChron Programmable Wall Switch Timer. That's because the AutoChron allows you to control lights or other devices, such as ceiling fans, in your home that don't plug into the wall but are controlled by a toggle wall switch. The AutoChron is fully programmable; it can set to turn lights off at the same time each day, different times or different days, or even different times on the same day. The AutoChron lets you vary on and off times so someone watching your house can't tell whether you're home or away. You don't get that security with any manual timer!

The AutoChron installs easily over any wall toggle switch cover. You can put an AutoChron in every room with a wall toggle switch and have total control over your overhead lights. You'd have to pay an electrician thousands of dollars to do the same thing. Just as important, the AutoChron doesn't "plug into" your devices directly so even if there is a power outage, the AutoChron won't lose its power and will continue to operate as you set it when the power comes back on. Conventional manual timers stop working when there is a power outage so the on and off times are lost. The AutoChron keeps your home more secure, plus it will save you money because you'll never forget to turn off the lights or the TV again!

What's Included

  • 1x - Programmable Wall Switch Timer
  • More Info

    Your AutoChron wireless wall switch timer offers 7-Day, 9 On and 9 Off programming for convenient operation of your home's lighting and appliances controlled by a toggle switch. Timer Fits over any existing toggle switch without removing the switch plate cover. Use it to control indoor lamps and lighting, ceiling fans, porch lights, landscape lighting and any outlets controlled by a wall switch for automatic operation of appliances such as televisions, stereos, coffee makers, and more. Because you can set the device to operate at various times of the day, you can avoid a predictable "timer-controlled" look which may tell would be intruders that your home is unattended.

    ROBERT -- maryville, TN   5/30/2014
    Wow. I am thrilled with the operation of this programmable wall switch. It works perfectly.
    CARLOS -- oakland, CA   4/27/2014
    The product was out of stock and I was notified promptly. When it did come in stock, the package arrived ahead of the anticipated date. The wall timer is easy to install. The programming requires a few steps so it is useful to have the manual handy.
    JOYCE -- vestavia hills, AL   4/26/2014
    The AutoChron 81000 Programmable Wall Switch Timer is just what I needed to control a new front porch light. It was super simple to install over the existing outlet. Programming was easy once I read the instructions thoroughly. The timer does make a slight noise when turning the switch on and off, but it only lasts a second or two and is not loud at all. Would definitely buy another timer like this one should a need arise.
    KEITH -- colorado springs, CO   3/29/2014
    Just what we wanted for controlling our outdoor lights. THANKS!
    MARTHA -- cotuit, MA   3/20/2014
    This product works well and is easy to install. Directions for setting the timer are clear. Only needed a screwdriver for one screw. Now my driveway lamp posts turn on and off automatically.
    RICHARD -- wickenburg, AZ   1/30/2014
    Great idea. Will not fit over the designer rocker type switches. Using it to flip a standard switch to the water heater. Arrived quickly and securely packed.
    DANA -- florence, AL   1/16/2014
    Awesome! It's a stress reliever knowing my outside lights will come on even when I cant make it home by dark. THANK YOU!

    JAMES -- port huron, MI   11/22/2013
    These devices do an excellent job of turning on and off the lights. Great invention and very much worth it! Thank you.
    PATRICIA -- columbus, OH   11/3/2013
    these are great. I am block watch coordinator and recommend these to other residents.
    nyurxman -- chapel hill, NC   10/8/2013
    This product works well but be cautioned, it may not work on every light switch, especially a faceplate with multiple light switches. I purchased two of these for two different lights and only one worked well. This unit is pretty bulky and doesn't leave a lot of room between light switches on a multiple switch plate. On one it did not site right on the switch and was not able to turn the switch on or off and I had to return it.
    JEAN-CLAUDE -- queens village, NY   4/5/2013

    Installation is easy and fast. Programming options are plentiful and should fit any household needs.
    TIM -- franktown, CO   1/13/2013
    Easy to install and program. I use it to turn on/off exterior lighting. I can easily move it to other light switches (Christmas lights) as needed.
    RICK -- wilmington, MA   1/12/2013
    We were going away for a couple of months and wanted a simple solution to turn our lights on and off. The AutoChron Timer was so easy to set up and operate that I almost couldn't believe it. I got a couple of them, and they were just what the doctor ordered! They work like a charm!
    LAWRENCE -- grand blanc, MI   12/5/2012
    Great product. Works as described.
