Intermatic ST01K 7Day Programmable In Wall Digital Timer Switch 4 Light Ppliance
Nov 02, 2021
Something new that's better than how things "used to be."
I use these Intermatic timers to replace three in-wall digital timers I've used for many years, as well as some X-10 based switches. These older timers had not failed, but they became unreliable with the switch to LED and fluorescent light bulbs. They both depended on the small amount of current that the filaments of the old incandescent bulbs could pass without it causing the bulbs to light up. This current is what the internal timers ran on in the case of the older digital timers and in the X-10 switches the filaments allowed a path for the signal the X-10 hubs send out to cause the switches to turn off-and-on. So no filaments, no current; no current, no path. The newer fluorescent and LED bulbs don't allow any current to pass through them; they're either off or on, based on the switches being used. Enter these newer Intermatic timers, which have internal timers that run on a small lithium battery cell. The circuitry Intermatic designed, operates by using the current from the battery to keep the timer running, and that in-turn provides the needed control of the power to operate the LED and fluorescent bulbs. Intermatic went beyond simple timers with these switches by providing a program in them that tracks the time of year combined with allowances for location, so that the timers follow the seasons and thus adjust when the lights go on-and-off in time with sunrise and sunset. Intermatic even provided a programed schedule to do this in a random manner so that it appears someone is at home operating the lights, i.e. they still follow the season, but change up their switching times a few minutes each way daily so it doesn't appear so regimented. These switches have solved all of the issues I've experienced since switching out our lighting. They have allowed us to benefit from the reduced operating costs the newer lights provide, along with their better light and longer reliability. This has really been brought home, as we still have a few "decorative" incandescent bulbs in use in a Tiffany-style lamp, and I realize now that I've been replacing those bulbs at least twice a year since we bought the lamp over 20 years ago. That didn't used to seem excessive, but I just replaced the first LED bulb I installed in our garage. It was a large bulb, with the equivalent output of 200 watts incandescent-equivalent. That bulb lasted 13 years! It lasted through thousands and thousands of on-off cycles during that time. That's service! Yeah, these Intermatic switches weren't cheap to buy, but using them to operate quality LED bulbs makes for a great light system that is really energy and money saving. And, buying them on eBay saved me $15.00 a switch. So, what's not to love?

Great SSD
I've been using Samsung computer parts for years, and they have proved to be excellent quality. Their SSDs are not inexpensive, but their performance is worth the price. The difference in speed is something to experience. This is my second Samsung SSD and I recommend them.
4 ORAL-B POWER TIP Replacement Toothbrush Tooth Brush Heads Interproximal Clean
Jan 28, 2022
The best way to keep your smile!
The Oral-B toothbrush and these Power Tip brush heads are what brought me to switch from using a manual toothbrush to a powered brush. My husband has used an Oral-B toothbrush since they first went on sale and gets excellent dental health reports. I like how these brush heads get down into areas that a manual brush just doesn't seem to reach. I recently had a lot of dental work done, and these brush heads make it so much easier for me to keep my teeth clean. I highly recommend these brush heads and the Oral-B system.
