does what it should, slightly misleading description
This day and night timer is just a "on or off" along with 4 plugs that are always on, it will not turn off your day light, and turn on your night light, you need two timers for this, and carefully set them to turn on and off at the right timing so your pet isn't left in the dark, i grabbed a single outlet timer for my nightlight, its set to turn off a bit before the day light, turns on before the day lights are off, bit of a mess but it works.
Just what I needed. Would have given it a 5 star, if I was able to control (2) different loads at different adjustable times. It does have 4 controlled and 4 non-controlled outlets. The controlled outlets are all controlled by one timer. Other than that it does what it's supposed to do.
Best Timer/Outlet Out There
I have been using this brand timer/outlet for a long while now. I have several in my home as I have 8 planted tanks. As any fishkeeper knows that has live plants making sure your plants have adequate lighting, water parameters and such is already a hassle....this takes one aspect and makes it automatic. Off whenever you set and on whenever you set it. If you need to turn them on at night for any reason you just flip the white switch on the side and it turns the timer portion off. I like that it's labeled and simple.
Not great at coming on
We bought this because my adhd son keeps forgetting to turn the light on and off for his bearded dragon. In the morning the things you push down to make it come on at a certain time just pop back up and doesn’t turn on. We reset it and it will work the first day but not the next. So it only works 50% of the time. We just have to leave the night heater on 24/7 so that his cage doesn’t cool off too much at night because there is only one time setting. I plan to buy him some smart outlets to replace this.
Worked for less than a year
Worked well for what I needed, but after only 8/9 months, started making concerning sounds and had to be replaced.
It only programs for one shut on/off time. So I can’t hook up my day AND night bulbs. I can have one or the other which defeats the purpose for providing a proper day/night cycle. Dumb.
For the price point I should have just ordered a normal power strip and a smart plug for the auto on and off. This thing feels and looks very cheap the timer is average and doesn't do night and day. Only one or the other. I was really disappointed. It does work but however I will replace it with a higher quality strip and a smart plug so I can have lights that sync up with the sun set and sun rise that adjust on their own. That will work better for me. Now if you need a get the job done item and you Don't care about quality then this will work.
This power strip works perfectly for my chameleon lights!
Our son consistently forgot to turn off his dragon lights. This is a perfect set up for heating lamps and everything else
Product is very nice and works great. Only issue is the timer is a little tricky to get an exact time (ex 7:00) i keep getting it a few minutes before or after which is fine. Easy set up
