Introduction
The X10 Mini Timer controls up to 4 X10 Modules automatically (8 instantly). You can
have your outside lights as well as inside lights and appliances go on and off at preset
times to give your home a lived-in look while you are away.
You can program your Modules to go on and off at the same time every day (up to 2
times) or you can set your stereo to wake you up "Once" only, for an early morning
flight. There is even a "Security" button which automatically varies your programmed
time each day so your home doesn't look like it's controlled by a timer.
You can keep the Mini Timer by your bedside and it will wake you up on weekdays. It
has a snooze feature so you can sleep a while longer and you can turn the alarm off on
weekends.
You can manually turn off your child's radio or night light from your bedside and dim
your bedside lamp. You can turn on ALL lights connected to Lamp Modules and Wall
Switch Modules with the touch of a button if you hear a suspicious noise at night. You
can even turn off everything in the system with one button.
Before you begin
Keep in mind that your X10 System will always turn lamps and appliances on or off the
instant you press the buttons. That's obvious - but there can be some unexpected
consequences.
For example, an empty coffee pot can be remotely turned on. If that should happen,
your coffee pot may be damaged from overheating. If an electric heater is turned on by
remote control while clothing just happens to be draped over it, a fire could result.
Therefore, do not use with high power heating devices such as portable heaters.
Always be aware of what appliance you are turning on or off so that potentially
dangerous situations will not occur.
What it does
The Mini Timer plugs into any AC outlet in your home and you set it like a digital alarm
clock. Channel number 1 also activates an internal buzzer so you can us it as an alarm
clock too! You can program up to 4 X10 Modules from the Mini Timer and you have
instant control of 8 Modules.
There is a handy snooze feature which lets you cancel the alarm buzzer by pressing
any key. This will stop the buzzer and will set the alarm off again in 10 minutes. You
can do this indefinitely.
Pressing the "Sleep" button after turning a Module On will cause it to go Off in 15
minutes time (or On in 15 minutes if you just turned it Off). You can press the "Sleep"
button multiple times to get multiples of 15 minutes "on time" (or "off time").
Advancing to a particular time (in the Prog Set mode) and then pressing a number ON
or OFF key will set an on or off time for that Module, every day. However, if (within 4
seconds) you press "Once" you will change that program to occur only once, if you
press "security" you will change the program to occur at different times each day
(variably).
