Instructions for a Woods Digital Indoor Lighting Timer

You might want to use a timer to have your indoor lights go on and off according to a schedule, such as automatically switching off an hour after you go to bed, or turning on 30 minutes before you usually arrive home from work at night. To make people think there is someone still at home when you leave, you can program a timer to turn a light on and off randomly. One option is the Woods Digital Indoor Lighting Timer, which you can easily set up and start using by plugging the timer into an electrical outlet, and plugging a lamp into the timer.
