Lighting timers

Post by ROSIEonFIRE » Wed Sep 11, 2019 12:41 pm

Hi all! I want to have 1, possibly 2 lamps that turn on during the day and 1 lamp that turns on at night on my tat. I bought a light timer with multiple plugs thinking that each plug could be programmed individually but now I'm thinking that's not how it works! Do you guys know of any timers that can have multiple schedules?

How about a smart plug? I use these.... each has ability to set a schedule PER SOCKET plug - that’s 4 different light schedules. (Plus Alexa compatible Image) Image

Just make sure that you can put a 2 of those on one outlet. Some are too bulky. I've returned quite a few.

Yes, agreed. These fit perfectly into my surge protector spacing.
