Timers + Smart Plug
A time switch or time switch is a clock that switches an electrical contact on or off at set times. The switching times are usually individually adjustable. With a normal time switch, the cycle is repeated every 24 hours; with a weekly time switch, different switching times can be set individually for each weekday. With a yearly time switch, different switching times can be set for each calendar day. This means that holidays or special events can also be taken into account in the settings. There are two types of time switches, mechanical and electronic. With mechanical time switches, a motor turns a disc into which pins or similar are inserted. These pins then actuate the contact directly. Electronic time switches are programmed via a display and buttons on the device.
