  • Q:

    how does Intermatic timer connect to Volt Transformer
    Asked on 9/11/2017 by Ron from OH

    1 answer

    • VOLT Lighting Specialist

      A:

      For our low-voltage transformers that have timer add-on capabilities, with the door open, you will see an outlet on the left side of the transformer; this is where the timer will plug into. After the timer is plugged in, you will then insert the plug that was initially inserted in the outlet into the timer's outlet; you should see this on the side of the timer device. Here is a video to help illustrate how a timer plugs in: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=SmRHBn52Byc
      Additionally, here is a video on how to operate the digital timer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=2&v=ElwQafFklj4

  • Q:

    With this timer, can I have the on/off set times but also manually control them without effecting settings
    Asked on 6/22/2017 by Steven from PA

    • VOLT Lighting Specialist

      A:

      Yes. You can set the program and let it run. When you want to override the settings, there is a manual on/off button. You just have to remember to set it back off to continue the programmed settings.

  • Q:

    I need to get new batteries for the timer. I took one to Ace Hardware but the batteries they sold me are not working. The timer is the Intermatic Indoor Digital timer DT620. Can you tell me the Duracell number to buy? Thank you.

I almost didn't buy this timer because of all of the reviews that talked about how difficult it was to set up. But, bottom line, I really wanted a timer for my low voltage lighting that would automatically adjust to the seasonal changes and daylight savings time so I bought it. I will admit that it is not an easy set up. It took me three tries to get it right and that was after watching You Tube instructions over and over. But once it is set up it is truly set it and forget it. I have had it for three months now and my lights come on at dusk, no matter what the season. If you are a person who never reads a manual and thinks he can get this set up without instructions this is not the product for you. It will make you crazy. But if you are willing to do the homework and study the instructions you will not regret buying this timer.

I ordered lights, a transformer, and this timer a couple of weeks ago. Installation went smoothly, and even though the instructions on the timer were a bit confusing, they weren't impossible to figure out. Worked smoothly for a few days but now, the timer just flat out does not work. It is supposed to keep working while unplugged - it doesn't. Bought new batteries with no luck. Reset the whole thing and started over, again no luck. I will be contacting the company to see about a replacement which I am sure they will do. They have been very nice and helpful. It's just this particular timer stinks. The lights and transformer are wonderful. Very pleased with the quality and performance - when the timer lets them come on!

      Comments about VOLT® Intermatic Astronomic Digital Timer:

      I bought this product to provide extended options, particularly my ability to manipulate the time at which the system powers down and even set a variable schedule within season. During daylight savings, I want the option of saving energy by powering up at a later time. The system came with an analog on/off timer. The previous product reviews were very helpful as you will needf customer support to set it.

      Comments about VOLT® Intermatic Astronomic Digital Timer:

      I wanted a simple on-off timer and I bought this, not realizing it was for 20+ programs. I had 3 different people try to set it for me, unsuccessfully, one having called the Volt people for help. Eventually, the 1st guy came back and we figured out why it wasn't going off till 12 hours later. VERY VERY COMPLICATED, SO DON'T GET IT UNLESS YOU NEED MANY MANY DIFFERENT SETTINGS.

      Comments about VOLT® Intermatic Astronomic Digital Timer:

      Once one determines how to program this time, it is an incredible appliance. It worked so well with my Volt lighting, that I purchased 6 more to control Christmas lights in different parts of the house. This is an amazing timer, and much easier to program than other astrological timers. Just print the directions from Intermatic's web site.

      Comments about VOLT® Intermatic Astronomic Digital Timer:

      I purchased two of these timers from a third party (not Volt) due to pricing. Fits nicely into Volt transformers. This timer works great once you get it programmed. I have mine come on at dusk and off at 10 pm. You can pick a different program for each day of the week if desired. Has a battery to retain program during power failures. Just ensure you have no distractions when programming as the instructions are lousy! You Tube has a helpful tutorial for programming.
