Hi there, Hipsters! It’s Cassandra, one of Collin’s sidekicks!
We’ve all done it. You step out to run a quick errand, thinking you’ll be back in an hour or so and before you know it, you’re fumbling with your keys in the dark at your front door because you forgot to turn the porch light on… again.
I solved that problem when I snagged this Honeywell Econoswitch 7-Day Solar Time Table Programmable Switch. It’s the bee’s knees, y’all! It works with all types of indoor and outdoor lighting as well as ceiling fans, bathroom fans, electric fireplaces, TVs, pool pumps… even smart devices!
As long as your plugged-in devices can be turned on and off by a wall switch, this switch has them covered!
Where this thing really “shines” though, is at your front door.
The automatic mode turns the light on at sunset and off at sunrise using the solar timetable. It also comes equipped with an automatic daylight savings update so you don’t have to remember to reset it twice a year. It can even be used like a regular light switch at any time by clicking the manual switch at the bottom.
Use it in your kiddo’s room to automatically turn the lights off when it’s time for bed and then turn them back on again when it’s time for them to rise and shine. ☀️
Planning a vacation?
With multiple switches installed in different rooms, use random mode to turn lights on and off inside your house at various times while you’re away. Alternatively, you can also program up to 7 different on/off times per week so you can set your lights and/or TV to turn on and off at different times on different days – so it looks like someone is home.
This programmable switch is easy to install with just some basic wiring knowledge and features a large backlit screen that pulls double duty as a nightlight. Plus, the programming is protected for up to four hours during power outages so no resetting is required!
It’s worth noting that Honeywell isn’t sponsoring this post. I just really dig this switch and thought you might too. I scored mine from Amazon, but you can also grab one from Home Depot if you prefer.
