I was pretty nervous about ordering this after seeing the reviews. Setting it up is pretty self explanatory from the instructions although I didn’t need much from this item, it looks like you can choose different days and times for each plug in. I just needed my bearded dragons heat and UV lamps to turn on and off, he doesn’t have any night time lights. You do need to wait that 24 hours for the timer to catch up and make sure your AM and PM is correct when setting everything up! I had an issue with the ‘mode’ button. I didn’t realize that it would affect my cycle I set up for 8am-8pm when different modes are turned on. The “auto” mode is how you get it to use the cycle you set up. YouTube was a great help with figuring that part out, as I was worried. So far so good though and would recommend! I’m happy to have my dragon on a sleep cycle now!
concept is really cool if it worked. not sure if i just received a defective one. i’ve trouble shooted for a few weeks now to see if things would work but it just does not turn on and off when it should
This works fantastically, if you read everything. If you read all the way through to the end, it tells you that its basically isnt going to work on Auto until you let it cycle through till the day slots are set to turn on. I did that (meaning it set it, plugged it in, but didnt plug anything into it), waited till the next day and it works perfectly. I love this as now I don't have to worry about how to turn the lights on/off if I'm away from home.
Power goes through the unit, however the timer functions for On/Off day/night settings does not work as it should. I programed per the instructions however the unit does not swap from Day/Night like it's supposed to. Also the instructions say that Yellow is day and blue is night however they are reversed (Wired backwards) so I tried using the blue for Day and yellow for night however the timer still doesn't swap between program settings like it's intended to. Not sure if this was just a "Dud" as I have another of these I've been using for over a year with no issues...
I bought this in June of 2022. It worked great for about 3 months. Then, the clock function got screwed up. The button that allows you to set the clock to the correct time seems to have shorted out. Since I can no longer set the correct time on the clock, the entire strip is pretty much useless. Replaced it with an old-school manual timer.
Initially, I wasn't sure if I was just stupid, or if this timer just doesn't work. Had 3 of my adult children and my husband all give it a go, and the timers will not work. Period.
Hello, This product would’ve been nice; if it had worked at all. The timer wasn’t that difficult to set up, but 4 of the 8 outlets (the 2 night and 2 of the untimed) don’t work regardless of the settings. I’d like a refund but I don’t know how to get one. Highly disappointed.
I had read the other reviews that said that this item did not work and I thought that maybe they had just gotten faulty products. My boyfriend is good with technology and he set mine up and it worked for the first couple days and then it stopped working on the schedule that he had set. I don't see any reason for this and I will just be returning the product if I can.
Confusing to set up directions could be better with all those different settings and I would still buy another one if I ever had to easy to hang so its out of the way of any wires among other things that could possibly get in The way
This item stopped working in just over a month. We tried resetting the programming and nothing works.
