3.Press any of the 4 ON or OFF rocker keys to set an on or off time for that Module. This
will program the Mini Timer to turn that Module on (or off) at that time every day.

Special Programming Buttons

time, you press the "Once" button you will modify the
program to carry out your programmed event only once and
it will not repeat on the next day.
2. Security button. Press (within 4 seconds after setting an
ON or OFF time) to modify the program so that your lights (or
appliances) will go on or off at a slightly different time every
day (within the programmed hour).
3. Clear Button. Pressing this (in the Review mode) cancels
the on time or off time being displayed.
4. Buzzer Switch. In the "ON" position an internal wake up
buzzer will sound at the time programmed for Module
number 1 (or 5). When this sounds you can turn it off by
pressing any button to obtain the "snooze" feature. This will
turn the buzzer back on in 10 minutes and will do so each
time you operate snooze.
The alarm can be cancelled by moving the Buzzer switch to
"OFF" and back to "ON" (for wake up the next morning).
5. Sleep Button. Pressing "Sleep" after turning a Module on
will turn it off -15 minutes later. Pressing "Sleep" after
turning a Module off will turn it on - 15 minutes later.
Multiple presses adds multiples of 15 minutes to your on
time (or off time).
6. Selector Switch. Used to select whether you want your
Mini Timer to control Modules set to Unit Codes 1 thru 4 or 5
thru 8. You can move the selector switch back and forth to
achieve instant control of 8 X10 Modules but you will only
be able to set times for one group (1 to 4 OR 5 to 8).

Setting up the Mini Timer

Setting the clock

Plug the Mini Timer into any convenient AC outlet. Place a 9 volt alkaline battery in the
battery compartment to protect the time and program for up to 48 hours in the event of a
power outage. Test the battery by pressing "Once" or "Security." If the battery is low the
battery light will turn on. If the battery is dead or not installed the battery light will be on
When you first plug in the Mini Timer the display will flash. It will also flash if you have
had a power outage and have not installed a 9 volt battery or the battery is dead.
1. Set the mode switch to "Set Clock."
2. Press the right hand "Time" rocker to advance to the correct
time. A quick press on the rocker will advance the time by 1
minute. If you hold the rocker down the display will advance
to the correct time faster. If you overshoot, you can use the
left hand rocker to go back.
