    I have two of these and life is much better now

    By AbeM on Nov 4, 2018

    These power centers are great. They have a battery backup in case power is lost your programming is saved and so is your clock. I needed more outlets for day and night so I added additional regular power strips. Not only does it simplify wiring and timer but it makes it easier to trouble shoot.

I added 2 smaller turtle tanks and put them on different zilla power strip. There is no other product that does this as well. Programming is easy just follow steps. I just need to keep an eye on the 20 amp breaker all these at connected to. … more

    This Product is Mediocre

    By Kate on Sep 11, 2018

    I’ve had this digital power center for at least a year and I honestly think after having had it for some time, there has to be better products out there. Not only is this thing annoying and difficult to set up, if your power goes out or the switch gets flipped, you have to reprogram your on/off times I’ve had this digital power center for at least a year and I honestly think after having had it for some time, there has to be better products out there. Not only is this thing annoying and difficult to set up, if your power goes out or the switch gets flipped, you have to reprogram your on/off times.. You set the clock to 5:00 p.m and it’s like after a couple of weeks it’s magically increased the time on its own and your clock now reads 5:04 p.m.. I’ve recently ran into the problem where I’ll set my times how I ALWAYS have them (on at 9:30 a.m. and off at 9:30 p.m.) with the mode set to AUTO (meaning the lights will automatically come on and off at the proper times) and the lights don’t turn on ever.. I lead a busy life and having a timed light control is essential to ensuring my animals have proper light cycles.. I will no longer be using this product or recommending it in the future. … more

  • Great Timing

    By on

    I used the analog power strips and they were okay but since I needed to be able to have two of my lamps for my lizard on a different schedule from the third I had to used two different timers and it was a mess. that and the one timer had to constantly be reset because of it not working properly and my cats waking on it. with the digital there are two outlets for day and two for night for a timer and since everything is digital o don't have to worry about the lights not coming on when they're supposed to due to faulty timers and cats paws. easy to program as well.

  • Not worth the money

    By on

    Finally got around to setting up after having it for a few months. Didn't work out of the box. Going to just buy a couple dual outlet timers for my needs

  • Not worth the money

    By on

    The cycle system worked for a day, and now I have to manually switch the lights myself. I’ve changed the batteries and reset the whole thing, but it still won’t do the day and night cycles correctly.

  • Turns out I didn't need it

    By on

    I didn't necessarily need this so I will be returning/exchanging for the temp gauge for the heating pad as I need that more, so it will turn of the lamp and heat pad when it goes over the temp set. I have a wood stove so the temp flexuates a lot and gets way to hot for our leapord geckos. But I did use it when I first got it just to plug everything in.. although I didn't set the timers as the leapord geckos don't need the day lamp and I barely have to run the red night lamp as it get the tank way to hot. A temp gauge will better fit my needs rather than the power strip. I definitely recommend if you have to have lights turn on and off at certain times though.

If the power strip could recognize temps and automatically turn off/on I would keep it but I believe with the power strip you just set times and that's when they turn on and off. Shipping was as expected and packaging was good. … more

  • Cheap Device

    By on

    Fails to keep time correctly. Analog dial needs adjusting to correct time of day, everyday.

  • Lived too long without this

    By on

    Wish I'd found this sooner for my tortoise. Had a little trouble figuring out the directions (maybe it was me & my spouse being blockheads?).
