Time Switches

A time switch is a pre-set timer that in turn controls an electric switch. The time switch is an electronic devise that controls the 'on' and 'off' time of electrical equipment. The electronic timer switch can be built into an existing power circuit connected to the mains power, plugged into a wall socket with the appliance then plugged into the timer, or actually built-in to the piece of equipment itself.

There are different ranges and types of timers depending on your requirements. A countdown timer is used to set electronic equipment to switch 'on' or 'off' at a pre-set time programmable by an individual. A cyclical timer operates in an identical way, but usually over a defined time period, which is then repeated by the hour, on a daily or weekly basis.

Many household items are run by a time switches for example, central heating and hot water, preset to switch 'on' and 'off' at a certain hour each day, or a slow cooker pre-set to cook for so many hours to ensure your dinner is ready for you when you arrive home after a day at work or a day out.

Timers for both internal and external lights are ideal when used for home safety or business safety purposes as a deterrent to potential opportunists or burglars. You can programme your timer to switch the lights 'on' and 'off' at a particular hour of the day, giving you complete control and making it look as if you are at home or in the building. Certain timers have sensors which switch the lights on when it is dark. Either of these are ideal when getting home late in the darker evenings or when you are away on business or on holiday. These time switches are also an ideal way of cutting energy costs, by only consuming electricity when required.
