Product Description

Product Description

Normal household timers are not built to take the high inductive loads produced by HID ballasts. If used with a HID ballast - the contacts inside the timer that open and close the timed circuit will overheat and weld together - breaking the timer and leaving your grow lights permanently on. The LUMii Heavy Duty 24 Hour Plug In Timer is different. It is designed to take high loads and has no problem dealing with the inductive loads produced by a 600 watt ballast. This means that no separate contactor is required and therefore it saves you money. It has 96 switching operations within a 24 hour period (every 15 minutes). This timer is suitable for timing one 600w HID ballast or up to 6 x 200w CFLs. It has a robust 'inline' case design with socket and timer dust covers. The LUMii Heavy Duty Timer's wonderful reliability means you can use it for many other functions: turning on your television or household lights when you are away on holiday to deter thieves, turn on heaters in the morning, switch fish tank lights on and off are just a few examples.

When I saw the price of this I thought it's a mistake or the item is crap. Considering other contactors are in the £50/60 range £9.31 seemed too good to be true. Anyway not being one to pass up a bargain I ordered one, hey I'll just send it back if it's crap. No need this little beauty is perfect, nice well made feel and IT WORKS! I've had my 600w Sunmaster D/S bulb and 600w Maxibright ballast on a 12/12 for 5 days now with zero problems. Very pleased so far. Will update all you growers out there after the 12/12 is over (8 weeks, and counting)

4/1/2014 Update. Timer working like a dream. I ordered a second one also treated myself to a 600w/400w Lumii Digital Ballast and 600w Lumii HPS Bulb.

31/10/2014. The timer is still 'timing'.
1 on 18/6 with a 400w the other on 12/12 with a 600w. They turn on on and off no problem. Slight time lag ie 3-4 mins over a week but nothing to worry about.

Having gone through two other contactor/timers in the space of a few weeks I was preparing to fork out a lot of £££ on a new one when I stumbled across this. It has all the benefits of a top end contactor/timer at a fraction of the price.

I’ll update my review if anything changes but so far so good!!

Works well but over engineered and very big and chunky. Not easy to program as pins are very fiddly and the unit tends to lean out from a vertical socket because of the weight. Spring loaded cover is, in theory, a good idea but gets in the way.

These are great. I use them in the guinea pig shed to run fans and the radio. The cover over the dial keeps dust out, and they are robust and accurate. Well worth the extra money after cheaper timers failed quite quickly.

I bought two of these for use with indoor grow lighting in the hope of their being a neater solution than my traditional timer-plus-contactor method. Sadly BOTH were faulty straight out of the box! In both cases, one of the timer pins was permanently stuck in the on position and could NOT be move despite great efforts. I even checked with the seller that I was not just being stupid and missing some obvious fix, but no - they were indeed both duff. I chose a refund, since this lack of quality control did NOT reassure me about using them for 600W of CFL or HID lighting! Trust in electrical safety is key, and the quality control.was clearly not good as of 2014. I hope a reliable version emerges, as the current timer-plus-contactor is a messy [but SAFE] solution.

I had read reviews of similar products that were slightly unreliable, so I decided to pay a little bit more and go for this one. It's reliable and runs like clockwork, and so far, I don't have anything bad to say about it.

1 timing prong stuck so would have 15 minute break in cycle, had use night for day,(21.00 for 0900)
Also doesn't always switch on/off, to much hassle to send back so will make do.
I'd go for the cheaper ones as are about same quality.
