More advanced than a mechanical timer. You can set it for time of day and also day of the week. The integrated LCD shows current status and guides you through setup. There’s also an override on/off/auto selection. If the power goes out, an internal backup battery will retain your settings and accurate time for several days (though obviously won’t provide power to your appliance while power is not available). Also includes random mode to switch on lamps or radios to give the impression you’re home, while away on holidays.
