This basic timer can do so much. For example, make your house look occupied and less attractive to burglars when no one is home by timing lights to turn on at set times. Or plug a lighted holiday display or electric candle into the timer so you can enjoy your decorations without having to bother turning them on and off. Also, realize some electricity cost savings by timing appliance to turn off when they aren’t in use. 48 separate settings are available each day and the cycle repeats every 24 hours. NEVER-LOSE pins mean the pins can’t fall out and become lost.
