greetings, i have a rather long and dark walkway out to the driveway. it
is lit by the front door and i plan on adding a light at the other end
by the driveway. i would like to replace the switch with a combo on/off
switch with a timer so i can have the lights be on for a few minutes to
get out to the car. does such a switch exist?
Yes. We got one for the bath vent fan so we can run it for a time with
each shower and have it shut off. Some box stores carry them - our
Lowe's had a spot for them on the shelf but non in stock. Found them
while shopping for something else at a hardware that oddly specializes
in boat stuff. A good electrical supplier should carry them. Found
references while searching the net for different time limits, I believe
- 30 min, 60 min. Ours fits a standard switch plate and has a small
dial face that fits into the square hole before the knob goes on. Ours
is by Intermatic. You might find a motion sensor with right timing as well.
