Review: I-Mate Digital Timer Switch

Electronic gadgets are awesome! We love having a variety of electronic gadgets around the house. Granted, a lot of them lose their appeal after a while, but some of them manage to stay in use. One such gadget that has withstood the battle of time is this digital timer switch.

   At first, I was not quite sure where I would use this. A lot of our electronics are connected to power surge protectors. Eventually, I found one lamp with which I could utilize this switch. The lamp is in our living room and is usually one of the first lights that is turned on in our house every morning when people wake up. So, I plugged this into the outlet on the wall, plugged the lamp into the switch and then set the timer. Since people usually start stumbling out of their bedrooms at 7:30 in the morning, I set it for 7:15 a.m.
   When I went to bed that night, I made sure all the lights were out in our house. When I woke up the next morning, I was greeted with the warm light coming from the lamp. Since I am a fanatic about turning lights off in our house, I knew I did not have to freak out about someone leaving the light on all night. The next morning, I went out a little earlier - about 7:08. And I stood there, waiting to see if the light would turn on at 7:15. I was not disappointed.
   Setting the digital switch up was very easy. The instructions that came along with it were understandable. The only thing I have to complain about is I wish the switch was a little smaller. But, I recommend this.
Full disclosure: I was sent this product free of charge in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
