From the Manufacturer
The Time Out Pad is a pressure sensitive pad with a built in timer that helps parents monitor time outs. This simply works by adjusting the timer for one to five minutes and by pressing the start button. Its countdown will start when the child sits on the Time Out Pad and if the child stands up before the countdown has ended, an alarm sounds until they sit back down. This features red, yellow, and green lights that provide a visual countdown signaling the last 30 seconds of the time out. The Time Out Pad comes with a positive parenting guide including 5 steps to successful time outs. It requires two AA batteries which are not included.

One piece of advice thought. Your child may find this fun at first, mine did, therefore I made sure to explain what it was for and did not allow them to play with it. The novelty of it when it first arrived soon dissipated and they now do not want to be on the time out pad.
I. love. this. thing. GET IT! NOW! What the heck are you waiting for!?!
P.S. I should add that she will still spit and scream and be angry while she sits on the pad, and I do still have to pick her up and physically put her on it to start the timeout process, but it's so worth it for the 3 minutes that follow, and when her time is up, she gets up and puts it back in it's place with a smile on her face. It's amazing. Just stop reading and buy it.
It is battery operated, so I am expecting some annoyance when I have to replace batteries, but probably an A/C adapter would not be the safest alternative.
Our 2 year old sits on the mat and "serves" his 2 minute time-out so far every time without a problem.
Here are my issues with the product that keep me from giving it a 5 star rating:
Time outs are supposed to be given to children 2 or older, and given 1 minute per age (for example, a 3 year old should time out for 3 minutes), but the timer on this product ranges from 1 minute to 5 minutes. You should not give a 1 year old a timeout, so the timer should start at 2 minutes and probably go as high as 10.
The other issue is changing the time requires a coin or screwdriver. Maybe they did this to keep the child from lowering the time, but it would seem to me they could make it so once the time starts it cannot be changed by the child, but still make the switch easier to operate.
Overall I really like the product and it has worked wonders compared to trying to make them 'time out' without it. They really like the feedback it gives (visual and audible). And I really like that it stops counting when they stand up.
