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. Set the Mode Switch to the "Prog Set/Review" position.
2. Set the 1-4/5-8 switch as desired.
3. Press the "Time" advance rocker key to advance to the desired
on or off time. When you first press the rocker the time will
advance by 1 minute. If you hold the top of the rocker down the
display will "speed up" so you can get to the desired time faster.
When you get close to the desired time, you can "tap" the rocker
a few times to get to the exact time you want. If you overshoot,
you can press the bottom of the rocker to go back.
4. When you reach the desired time press the ON or OFF button
for the Unit Code you want to program an On or Off time for.
For example: If you advance to 12:45 PM and then press the ON button for number 2,
you will program the Module set to Unit Code 2 to go On at 12:45 PM every day.
If you advance to 7:00 AM and then press the OFF button for number 2, you will
program the Module set to Unit Code 2 to go Off at 7:00 AM every day.
You can now advance to another time and press another ON or OFF button (or the same
button) to program another time.
NOTE:
You can program a total of 64 On or Off times. These are distributed between the 8 unit
codes (selected with the 4 ON/OFF buttons). You could for example program Module
number 1 to go On 32 times and Off 32 times, but then that would use up all the memory
and you wouldn't be able to program any times for any of the other 7 unit codes. Or, you
could program modules 1 thru 8 to go On and Off 4 times each. I.E. you could program 4
On and Off times for modules 1 thru 4, then slide the selector switch to the 5-8 position
and program another 4 On and Off times for modules 5 thru 8.
If you try to set an on or off time and the memory is full, the display will read FULL. To
clear this, press the Clear button.

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.
The event you have programmed will happen (at the time you have programmed) within
the next 24 hours, and will then be automatically cleared from memory and will not
happen again the next day.
You can mix Once and Daily events for the same Unit Code (up to the 64 maximum
events for all 8 unit codes). See note at bottom of previous page.
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 buttons, you will
set an On or Off time for that Unit Code to occur every day at exactly the same time.
If however, within 4 seconds after setting an On or Off time, you press the "Mode" button
once or twice until Security is shown in the display, 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 button for number 2 and then (within 4
seconds) press the Mode button once or twice until Security shows in the display, the
Module(s) set to Unit Code number 2 will go On at exactly 7:35 PM on the first 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).
You can mix Once, Daily, and Security events for the same Unit Code (up to the 64
maximum events for all 8 unit codes). See note at bottom of previous page.
