Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great designing Needs a neutral to work. Neutral wires are usually not found in switch boxes , just in outlets. Great thinking when designing this product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Color does not match the other black devices Functionally this timer works fine however it's black is not the same as the black 2 gang plate cover or the black single pole light switch. I don't understand why this is listed as black when it's a closer match to the graphite devices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I received this item to review and immediately installed it in my living room. It was very easy to install and very stylish. I like knowing that I can set it and a light will be on waiting for me when I come home. No more trying to find a light to cut on. I highly recommend will work well anywhere you need a timed light source.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saving Electricity and it looks amazing This timer is super easy to install. Took no time at all to replace the old light switch and the sleek design is beautiful. I got the nickel finish to match my appliances. Installed it in my laundry room because no one ever remembers to shut off the light and now I don't have to worry about it. It turns off automatically at the time that I preset it for. Will be buying more for the bathrooms next.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Saving Electricity This switch is great. It's a lot easier than what I was expecting to install it. I put this switch in my child's bathroom because for some reason the light is always on in there. Since installing it, I no longer have that problem. The switch remembers the setting from the last use. So whenever my lil one goes in there and hits the switch, it will automatically turn off after the preset time of ten minutes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great features an sleek design I was in need of a new light switch an I received this 4 button digital timer, it was just what I needed. I can control the brightness of the room in just one switch. An it's very easy to control. I also ordered another one to put in my guest bathroom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more lights left on! I was continually inadvertently leaving on the light in the back laundry room, and because I don't go in there every day it would sometimes be on for a few days before I returned! This is great so I can just turn on the timer and not forget to turn it off after my hands are full

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great subtle look Great subtle look and fairly easy to install. It took my son in law less than half an hour to install. Seems to work well so far. I like that I can set a time to shut off the light or fan when its not in use, which will definitely lower my energy cost. The color and design are very nice. I recommend this for a pantry closet or a laundry room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I installed it about two weeks ago and so far it’s been great. It was easy to install and looks fancy on our kitchen wall. Not having to worry if I left the light on or not. I recommend this digital timer to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft to the touch Wow! Who knew that pressing a light switch would be so enjoyable! This switch feels like it's spring loaded and so easy to use. We installed it in the laundry room so no more struggling with turning out the light when your hands are full. My hubby installed it in less than 10 minutes. It's very easy to install and the no screw cover is amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features, Modern Look This 4 button digital timer switch and cover plates look amazing. I got the nickel color and it looks great. The functionality is perfect and is very easy to use. No complicated codes or sequences to get it to work. I am going to replace all my old outlet switches and covers with these. The timers come in very handy when you have family that loves to leave the lights on constantly. They can save a ton on the electric bill. Also can be used for outside lights, making it safer to come home at night. Give these a try if you like having money saving options and great looking outlets. You won't be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use! This timer is very nice, it was easy for my husband to install since he works with electrical, so you really need someone who knows what they are doing when installing. Goes well with my room decor, very easy to use with the 4 timers with 60, 40, 20, and 10 minute buttons. A good way to better control energy consumption and being more efficient.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handy accessory I like the multiple options that allow different settings for different items. Great way to make sure you don't come home to a dark house as you can just set it and have one less thing to worry about. A positive is the savings you can get by planning and keeping things turned off to save electricity.

Questions & Answers

I wasn’t clear to the answer of a previous question. I would like to confirm it is not possible to turn on the switch in a manner that bypasses the timer, thus it is not possible for the switch to stay on until manually turned off.  Is this correct?  Thx

Asked by: Pete20
That is correct…..there is no “always on” function…..your only options are the 4 timed selections……
Answered by: Wayne
Date published: 2023-05-30

Could you confirm: - Does timer have an IP rating? - Does manual on override timer function (stays on indefinitely when triggered)? If it does any option to disable this feature so can be only turned on with timer?

Asked by: Kristen
Hello Kristen, The RT2 timer does not have an IP Rating. DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION The RT2 is a time switch that turns OFF the connected light or fan when the selected time expires. An indicator light illuminates when the switch is OFF. When selecting a time delay of 20 min or more, as time expires, the button LED’s will move through the next available time delay, always giving an indication of the amount of time left before the time delay expires. One minute before each time delay transition, the active button LED will flash, providing the user an indication of the transition. Manual ON Turn ON the connected light or fan by pressing the desired time button, or the ON/OFF button. If you press the ON/OFF button, it activates the timer that was last used. Manual OFF While a timer is active, you can press the ON/OFF button to turn OFF the connected light or fan without delay. Changing the selected time If you decide that you need more or less time than you originally selected, restart the time switch by pressing the button that matches the amount of time you think you’ll need. Best Regards, Technical Support

If I want the fan to run always run for 30min, do I have to select 30min every time I turn the fan on?

Asked by: Dave
Hello, thank you for your inquiry. The timer has preset times of 10, 20, 40 or 60 minutes. You can either press the large paddle to allow the controlled device to run indefinitely, or you could press one of the timer buttons to have your connected load turn off after that amount of time has passed. I hope this helps. Please feel free to contact us in Technical Support should you have any other questions.
Answered by: Wiremold Tech Support

If the switch is turned on with the use of the on/off paddle instead of one of the preset timer options, does the switch still time out/turn off after 60 minutes if the paddle switch is not manually turned off?

Asked by: Evan
You can turn ON the connected light or fan by pressing the desired time button, or the ON/OFF button. If you press the ON/OFF button, it activates the time that was last used.

I need a minute timer switch that can work with a low power exhaust fan. The fan uses .25 amps, 30 watts. I've read some other switches will malfunction or not work on less than 3 amps - Is this switch compatible? fan model #FV-10NLF1E

Asked by: Arielle
The RT2 timer does not have a minimum load requirement, so it should work fine with this fan.

The lead wires for this switch are #16. My house uses #12 wires. Is this compatible? Or will the wires overheat, or have other problems, etc?

For my application, I'd like to use this device to open/close a set of signal contacts (that is, complete a continuity circuit, like an old-fashioned mechanical relay). There will be no current flowing through the contacts. Can the device do this?

Asked by: Florentinian
This device has a relay output so in theory would work to meet your needs. In practice though relays need a slight amount of switching current to help keep the contacts clean. If there is zero current being switched I might question performance/longevity in this application.

Is the fan control independent of the light? In other words, I would like the light to go on or off manually and the fan to go off automatically. The switch I have now has four connectors plus the ground terminal.

Asked by: Dave
The RT2 timer is a single control so if you're controlling and light and fan, they will both turn on and off together.

Can I use this switch if I only have 3 wires,  a hot, a neutral and a ground - no load wire to my fan/light?  If not do you have a timer switch that can be used?

Asked by: John
No, it won't work for you. Switches can be wired two separate ways: power to the switch or power to the light. You need the former for this to work. Responding to Legrand: gee, sure would be nice for there to be a warning on the box explaining this limitation! Even if not on the box, you could put it in the instructions too...
