    There’s no question that digital time switches are precise, reliable, and durable. But what can they do for you? Is buying a digital time switch better than getting an analog one? That’s what we’re here to find out.

    What Is a Digital Time Switch?

    Digital time switches have multiple on/off cycles that you can choose from in a 24-hour period. Another difference between the two is that digital switches have a numeric display instead of clock hands.

    Furthermore, a digital time switch can have different motion sensors, so it can turn the lights on and off, depending on the time of day. By programming your motion sensors instead of having them on all day, you’ll be able to save some time and energy. But keep in mind that they tend to be a bit more expensive compared to their analog counterparts.

    Types of Digital Time Switches

    Now, if you do decide to go for a digital time switch, there are two types you can choose from. You can go with a weekly digital time switch or an astronomical one. Astronomical time switches are location-dependant. In essence, the timer needs to know your exact location so it can properly manage your devices and light fixtures based on the time of day.

    On the other hand, you can preset your weekly digital switch seven days in advance. The switch isn’t time-dependent and it will only control your devices based on how you’ve set it. They are also pretty easy to install and you can follow this quick guide to see how it’s done. All you’re going to need are a couple of screwdrivers, wire strippers and connectors, and some pigtail wiring.

    Applications of Digital Time Switches

    The applications of a digital time switch are almost endless. You can use it to power your motors, pumps, and hydroponic systems. But that’s not all. You can also use a digital time switch to control lighting fixtures and regulate air-conditioning systems.

    Now, digital time switches can be used for both residential and commercial use. For example, if you’re a store-owner, you could use an astronomical digital time switch to automatically control your window lighting. An automated lighting system can save you power and money by turning the lights on only when it’s dark out. Of course, you can also set it to turn the lights off every day at dawn. You can use digital time switches in your home, store, company, or factory, both indoors and outdoors.
