GE 15079 timers provide an easy and convenient way to automate small electrical appliances such as lights or coffee pots. The 15079 timer plugs into a standard wall outlet and has outlets for two devices. Any device plugged into the GE 15079 timer can be set to turn on or off at preset times on specific days. The GE timer also includes a feature that will turn the device on and off at random times, giving your home a "lived in" appearance while you're away.
