Set it and forget it!
on February 14, 2017
My neighbor and I were talking and he told me "I noticed you turn your porch lights on at the same exact time every night". I told him I was a robot. Once he considered my statement and determined that I was not in fact a robot, I explained how I had everything on a timer that was built right into the box where the switch once was. Now I can go out of town for days on end and never worry about my house being dark. It just works, automatically. I'm sure in the future there will be a wi-fi enabled version of this product, but for now, it's "set it and forget it". I believe you can also make it operate randomly so your neighbor doesn't think you're a robot. I'm also a stickler for energy efficiency and have this set to coincide partly with the dynamic peak pricing (although all of my lighting is LED anyway).
If you're a father or husband who is always going around turning lights off and mumbling "Who do you think I am? Edison!?" while your wife responds "No, because if you were Edison, I wouldn't have to wait tables at Big Boy", this is the product for you. If you're just an energy efficiency nut who wants to make his neighbors think he is a robot, this is the product for you. If you're a fan of those awful 1990s 2:00am Ron Popeil infomercials with that gaudy rotisserie oven looking thing where he preached "set it, and forget it!", this is the product for you. It's a good product for a lot of people.
