NOTE: If the building’s wiring colors don’t allow you to tell wire “A”
from “B”, just pick one of the two wires and connect as if it is wire “B”.
After the installation is complete, if the controlled light or device will
not turn on properly, simply reverse wires “A” and “B”. See Steps 11
through 14 below for how to check.
8. Gently tuck wires into the timer wall box leaving room for the timer.
9. Using screws provided, mount the switch timer into the wall box, then install the wall plate.
10. Turn the power back on at the service panel.
11.Make sure the switch timer displays “MAN” mode. Perform the
test in Step 12 with the remote switch in each of its 2 positions.
12.Press the NEXT/ON/OFF button on the switch timer several
times. Each time that you push the NEXT/ON/OFF button, the
controlled light or device (the “load”) should turn on or off. If so
proceed to Step 14.
13.If the controlled light or device does not turn on or off, take one
of these actions.
- If the timer clicks but the load does not operate, re-check
your wiring and make sure the load is functional.
- If the timer clicks but the load only operates when the remote
switch is in one of its 2 positions, you need to turn off the
power at the service panel, then reverse wires “A” and “B”.
You can reverse wires “A” and “B” at the remote switch wall
box, or you can reverse wires “A” and “B” where they
connect to the red and blue wires of the switch timer. Then
turn power back on at the service panel and repeat Step 12.
14.Verify that the controlled load turns on or off each time that the
remote switch is operated. Your timer is ready to be set.
15.Proceed to Intro to Programming.
Intro to Programming: Read Before You Begin

an overview of how they are organized. Press the MODE
button to rotate through the timer’s modes: CALendar, CLocK,
ProGraM, AUTO, AUTO RANDDom, and MANual.
• Within each mode, menus “loop”, so they repeat when you get
to the end.
• You must set the CALendar and CLocK before programming
ON/OFF times.
• If the timer is left idle for five minutes, the programmed settings
are automatically saved.
NOTE: See section “Selecting Auto, Auto Random or Manual Operation” for description of each mode.

Battery Memory Backup
Your timer contains a built-in, non-replaceable, rechargeable battery
to maintain the date and time of day information for at least 4 consecutive days of AC power interruption. All other user settings are
maintained indefinitely without AC power. The built-in battery will fully
charge within a day of connection to AC power. After an extended
power outage, if the display is flashing “12:00 AM”, you will need to
re-enter the CALENDAR and TIME of DAY information.
Manual Override
