SANTA CLARA, CA June 2007 Ė Watt Stopper/Legrand premieres the RT Series Time Switches as part of its new line of energy saving residential lighting controls to offer homeowners a full range of green, attractive and reliable control solutions. The timers replace standard light switches and can control either lighting or motor loads such as fans. Users turn the switch on by pressing the ON/OFF button. The switch turns the load off at the end of the timerís countdown unless the user has chosen to turn it off earlier. The ON/OFF button is illuminated when the switch is off for easy location in darkened rooms.

Two timer models provide different options, while maintaining a coordinated look and feel consistent with Watt Stopper/Legrandís family of low profile, decorator style residential products. One model offers a choice of six easy-to-select factory-preset time delays: one, five, 10, 20, 30 or 60 minutes. The other is user-programmable in increments from five minutes to 12 hours and includes more advanced feedback and warnings. All control and programming is accomplished with digital pushbuttons and is quick and intuitive. No rotary switches are used and the timer is not audible.

Reliable Controls Time switches help homeowners take charge of their energy usage and are the ideal solution for many applications that are not appropriate for control by occupancy sensors, either because of switch location, room configuration or the use of the space. Areas that require lighting for limited periods of time and do not attract notice when the lighting is inadvertently left on, such as closets, pantries, garages, laundry rooms, utility rooms and storage areas, are excellent candidates for time-based control. Outdoor lighting and spas may be controlled by time switches, so homeowners can enjoy green control solutions throughout their properties.

Watt Stopper/Legrandís RT Series Time Switches are designed and manufactured for reliability. Like all of the companyís controls, they are backed by a five-year warranty.
