  • When the mains lights are on burglars assume someone is at home
  • Deter a burglar before he even thinks about targetting your home
  • The Light Switch Timer will give you that added security and peace of mind.
The practical upgrade to the traditional timer plug

  1. Shirley Legg

    I have lights outside the house , will it operate them? Do you need separate devices for differaent rooms

    • mydome (verified owner)

      The light switch timer can operate any lights that are controlled using a switch plate. This includes lights that are outside and inside.

      The light switch timer sits on top of your existing switch plate and therefore controls all the switches on that particular plate i.e. if its a 1,2 or 3 gang switch you can choose if not all of them which ones you wish to control. To control more than one rooms lights you will require additional light switch timers; one for each switch plate you wish to programme.

  2. Wayne

    Can you explain how the switch on the wall is pushed to the on position please

    • mydome (verified owner)

      The light switch timer is a mechanical device that sits on top of your existing switch plate and physically rolls over the switch for you. As a battery powered device it does not require any wiring and for this reason is compatible with all types of bulbs.

  3. Jane

    Are the batteries in the unit replaceable?

    • mydome (verified owner)

      Hi Jane,

      The batteries in the light switch timer are replaceable. You can usually expect up to 18 months worth of usage on a set of AA batteries. When battery power is low the LCD screen will show a battery icon indicating to you that you should consider changing your batteries soon.

      Many thanks,
