How does this lighting timer work?

This heavy-duty timer and contactor can take very high loads and efficiently handle a 600W light without needing a separate contactor or 2 x 200w CFLs.

This product has a plug socket with a timer side by side. When the user has a double wall socket, it won’t cover and block both outlets, leaving the second one available, unlike many similar products where this limitation can be irritating.

With most household timers, the products cannot take the high inductive loads given by HID ballasts. If you use a conventional timer with HID ballasts, the contacts within the timer that open and close the circuit will overheat and eventually weld together. This action will break the timer and leave your lights permanently switched on.

But this product is different. As its name indicates, it’s built to take these high loads and has no difficulty dealing with the high inductive loads produced by a 600-watt ballast.

How do I use this Lighting Timer?

The LUMii Heavy Duty Lighting Timer and Contactor Is extremely easy and intuitive. Full instructions come with the product.
