Introduction The X10 Mini Timer controls up to 8 X10 Modules automatically or 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 or you can set your radio to wake you up “Once”...
Introduction How it works The Mini Timer plugs into any AC outlet in your home and transmits digitally encoded signals over your house wiring instantly or at the times you set. These signals are received by the X10 Modules. You Plug a lamp up to 300 watts into a Lamp Module, an appliance such as a radio, fan, or coffee pot into an Appliance Module and replace important indoor or outdoor security lights up to 500 watts with the Wall Switch Module (modules sold separately).
Quick Tour Let’s quickly review the functions of each part of the keyboard (you can go to page 7 for a step by step tutorial if you prefer). Referring to the diagram below and the cutaway sections that follow you will see that the keyboard on the Mini Timer consists of 7 basic areas.
Quick Tour How to Program a timed event 1. Place the mode switch in “Prog Set/Review” position. 2. Advance to the desired time. 3. Set the 1-4/5-8 switch to the desired position. 4. Press any of the 4 ON or OFF buttons 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.
Setting up the Mini Timer Setting the clock Plug the Mini Timer into any convenient AC outlet. Fit two AA alkaline batteries in the battery compartment to protect the time and program for up to 48 hours in the event of a power outage.
Setting up the Mini Timer Setting something to happen every day at the same time After you have installed all of your Modules and checked that they are working instantly from the Mini Timer you are ready to program timed events. 1.
Programming ON and OFF times Setting a timed event to occur Once only If (within 4 seconds after setting an On or Off time) you press the “Mode” button once or twice until Once shows in the display, you will modify the program for that particular Unit Code to occur only Once.
Programming ON and OFF times Reviewing timer events Set the Mode Switch in the “Prog Set/Review” position. If no events exist in memory 0:00 is displayed, otherwise the first event found in memory is displayed. If (while in Prog/Review Mode) one of the 4 module ON (or OFF) buttons is pressed without modifying the current time, and no events are in memory for that module, 0:00 is displayed.
Programming ON and OFF times If the display shows FULL If FULL is displayed when you try to enter a programmed time, this means that you have tried to enter an additional time when you have already used up all the available memory.
Alarm settings Setting the Alarm Buzzer With the “Wake” switch in the “ON” position, any program you set for Module number 1 will also set the internal alarm buzzer. A bell icon will show in the display to indicate that a time for the Buzzer is set. For example: If you connect your bedside lamp to a Lamp Module set to Unit Code 1 and then program Module number 1 for an On time of 7:00 AM - At 7:00 AM your bedside lamp will turn on and the internal buzzer in the Mini Timer will sound.
Alarm settings Suspending the wake up function If you set channel 1 for an On time of 7:00 AM and number 1 is your bedside lamp, at 7:00 AM every day, your bedside lamp will turn on and the internal buzzer will sound. If you turn the Buzzer switch off on Friday nights the buzzer will not wake you up the next morning but your bedside lamp will still turn on.
Setting up the Lamp Module Setting The Lamp Module’s Code UNIT CODE DIAL (modules sold separately) Using a small screwdriver, set the red House Code dial to the same letter as your Mini Timer. Set the Black Unit Code dial to any unused number.
Setting up the Appliance Module Setting The Appliance Module’s UNIT CODE DIAL Code (modules sold separately) Using a small screwdriver, set the red House Code dial to the same letter as your Mini Timer. Set the Black Unit Code dial to any unused number.
Troubleshooting 1. If a particular Module won’t go on or off from the buttons on the Mini Timer: Check that you have power to the outlet controlling the Module and the switch on the light or appliance is ON. Check that the Unit Code and Housecode on the Module are set correctly. Try plugging the Module and the Mini Timer into the same outlet.
