While this timer does come with two outlets, the timer has one setting wheel, so everything plugged into either end of the timer will react in the same on/off cycle. You do not get separate controls for each outlet.
I have used both this timer and the Intermatic Intermatic TN311C 120 Volt Heavy Duty Grounded Timer, so I thought I would give some details comparing the two if that is what you are doing. This timer is slightly wider front to back than the Intermatic (not hugely different, but depending on where you want to use it that may make some difference to you. The Intermatic runs on pegs that you pull out and insert to set the time. If you lose those pegs... you are just out of luck. This timer does not have removable parts. It has small black lever type buttons that you press down for the times you want on, and leave fully extended for when you want off. So if you have the room for it, and you might misplace tiny pegs... then this is a better timer for you.
By following the instructions and simply plugging a lamp into one of the outlets and a portable radio into the other (there are 2 grounded outlets per timer), then pushing in the "pins" according to the intervals I wanted them turned on, and finally setting the dial to the current time, I created a changing sound and light "habitat" that would repeat itself daily. An additional feature is that "on" and "off" intervals can be as long as you want, or as short as 15 minutes, and repeated throughout the day.
I dedicated one timer to a table lamp near a window which I set approximately sundown to midnight. The other two timers were located in a livingroom and master bedroom respectively and had a lamp and radio coupled to each that were set to different and successive cycles. In this manner, light and sound "moved" throughout the house each day and night while I was away.
To test their effectiveness, I set them up several days ahead of time. They definitely added a sense of human presence (and therefore security) to a house that would be unguarded in my absence, except for an attack cat. Once tested, I flipped each timer's red slide switch to "override" the timer function until needed; another nice feature.
In conclusion, these timers are a good value: simple, rugged and versatile. What price, peace of mind?
I will be replacing it with another Intermatic timer today.

Died after a year or so- but I think it was less than $10 so maybe that is to be expected.Published 13 months ago by EC
