Programming ON and OFF times
Setting a timed event to occur in the "Security" mode
If you advance to a specific time, and then press one of the ON or OFF rocker keys, you
will set an on or off time for that Unit Code to occur every day at exactly the same time.
If however, you press the "Security" button within 4 seconds after setting an ON or OFF
time, you will modify the program for that particular Unit Code to occur every day at a
slightly different time each day.
The event you have programmed will happen at the time you have programmed on the
first day, and will then happen at a different time on each subsequent day (within the
hour you have programmed). For example:
If you advance to 7:35 PM, press the ON rocker key for number 2 and then press the
"Security" button (within 4 seconds), the Module(s) set to Unit Code number 2 will go on
at exactly 7:35 PM on the fist day and any time between 7:00 PM and 8:00 PM every
day after that. This time will vary each day so that the Module doesn't go on at the same
time each day (to give your home a lived-in look).

Sleep function

Set the Mode Switch to "Run."
To Turn a Module ON for 15 mins Press the ON rocker for the desired Module, then
press the "Sleep" button (within 4 seconds). The Module will turn on immediately and
will turn off automatically 15 minutes later. If you press the Sleep button twice, the
Module will turn off 30 minutes later, 3 times gives 45 minutes, etc.
To turn a Module OFF for 15 mins Press the OFF rocker for the desired Module. Then
press the "Sleep" button (within 4 seconds). The Module will turn off immediately and
will turn on automatically 15 minutes later. If you press the Sleep button twice, the
Module will turn on 30 minutes later, 3 times gives 45 minutes, etc. Press it as many
times as you like.
You can have up to 2 Sleep times in operation at the same time. i.e. Module number 1
could go on now and off 30 minutes later and module number 2 could go off now and
on 45 minutes later.

Programming ON and OFF times

Reviewing timer events

Set the Mode Switch in the "Prog Review" position (the display may show an apparently
random time until you press a key).
If you press any of the 4 ON (or OFF) rocker keys, the display will show the on (or off)
time programmed for that Module. If you have 2 on (or off) times set you can display the
second on (or off) time by pressing the ON (or OFF) rocker key again.
Each subsequent press of the ON (or OFF) rocker key will alternately display each of the
2 on (or off) times.
To remove a programmed time: while displaying a particular on (or off) time, press the
Clear button to clear that on (or off) time from memory. Pressing Clear twice will clear
both on (or off) times. This will not affect any other on or off times you have set.
If the display reads 18:18:
if 18:18 is displayed when you try to enter a programmed time, this means that you have
tried to enter an additional time when you already have 2 times set. You should select
Prog Review mode and press the ON or OFF key to review the times set. Cancel one or
more of your set times to enter another.

Selector switch

1-4 position - With the "Selector" switch in the 1-4 position
the 4 ON and OFF rocker keys control (and set times for)
Modules set to Unit Codes 1 thru 4 respectively.
5-8 position - With the "Selector" switch in the 5-8 position
the 4 ON and OFF rocker keys control (and set times for)
Modules set to Unit Codes 5 thru 8 respectively.

Controlling Modules 1-8

With the Mode switch in the RUN position you can slide the Selector Switch back and
forth to instantly control Modules set to 1 thru 4 AND 5 thru 8. However, in the "Prog
Set" mode you will only be able to set times for codes 1 thru 4 OR 5 thru 8.
If you set an on or off time for Modules 1 thru 4 and then flip the Selector switch to the 5-
8 position, the times set for Modules 1 thru 4 will affect Modules 5 thru 8.
Note: You cannot set on or off times for Modules 1 thru 4 AND 5 thru 8.
