Amazon.com [amazon.com] (Ships from and sold by Amazon) has the Honeywell Econoswitch RPLS740B 7-Day Solar Time Table Programmable Switch for Lights and Motors for $28. This was a +65 deal last time when it was only five cents cheaper, so essentially ties one of the lowest prices ever for this magnificent switch.

Not every automatic switch needs to be a smart switch. I use these for turning on and off landscape lighting all around my house, and Christmas lights in the winter.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

I own 4 of these to control my outside and garage lights. I have never touched them since installation and they work great. I don't have to worry about re-configuring them when I make changes to my smart hub or other smart devices...they just always work.

While I agree somewhat with the statement in bold, it is possible to garden them off onto their own VLAN. This segregation is what I do to keep those devices from listening in on the regular home network traffic.

It does take a bit more planning of course and may not be fully transparent for those without networking knowledge. I suspect there will be options in consumer routers in the future which will help in this arena to help isolate IoT devices.

Until then a managed switch or layer 2 router is what's used for VLAN setup. There are plenty of tutorials out to help set this up.

Two examples from an internet search: "tutorial setup vlan"

I have used these for several years at our vacation home and actual home. They work great. Set it and forget it. I get it, there are other options available these days but this is also a good product and works very well in some situations.

at $28, it might be better to spend a few more bucks for zwave for wifi.

Unless you don't want them on your WiFi. Personally, the fewer smart gadgets on my network the better. IoT devices are notoriously insecure. Maybe Z-Wave is better, but I don't have a need for it, so I'll save the few bucks and get these.

A light sensor plug could do your landscaping for cheaper.
It may be more expensive due to energy costs. People will use the lighting for walkways and no need to have it on 12 am to 4am. So 4 hours of energy saving each day 7 days a week. 365 days a year. Unless like to stay up and look at landscape 12am to 4am.

Thanks. Ordered the last used-like new from WH for $25. I really need to replace my Honeywell RPLS730B1000/U - manual time setting is not a way to go as I found out.

If you want to save energy, why not use the motion sensor? So it'll only turn ON when there is someone around to enjoy it? laugh out loud

Would this work for a whole house fan? Looking for something that will turn the fan on for an hour or so in the evening and then back on in the middle of the night for an hour.
