honeywell econoswitch programmable switch review – going out the front door

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.

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
