Question

How do I set up my MiniTimer?

Answer

MT13A SETUP

  • Connect the power supply to the Mini Timer and plug the power supply into any convenient AC outlet.


NOTE: you must use the power supply that came with the Mini Timer. The power supply contains circuitry required to control your X10 modules, so you CANNOT replace it with a regular 12V power supply.


  • Install two AA alkaline batteries in the compartment on the back, if desired (to protect the time and programmed events if there's a power outage).
  • Set the MODE switch to “CLOCK SET.”
  • Press the top of the “TIME” rocker to advance to the correct time. A quick press on the rocker will advance the time by 1 minute. If you hold the rocker down the display will advance to the correct time faster. If you overshoot, you can use the bottom rocker to go back.
  • Adjust your Lamp or Appliance Modules to the same HouseCode as the MiniTimer. You may need a screwdriver to turn the dial.
  • Set the UnitCode on your Lamp or Appliance Module to any number between 1 and 8. The combination of your Unit and House code’s makes your module’s distinct address. This way your timer knows which modules to turn ON/OFF.
  • Set the MODE switch on the MiniTimer to the "RUN" position.
  • Test that your modules are working correctly by pressing the "ON" rocker key on the MiniTimer key pad that corresponds to the UnitCode number you set for your module above.
  • Press the rocker key to "OFF" to then turn your lamp or appliance off.


Program a Timed Event

  • Place the MODE switch in the "PROG SET/REVIEW" position.
  • Use the UP/DOWN arrows to advance to the desired time.
  • Set the 1-4/5-8 switch to the desired position.
  • Press any of the 4 ON/OFF rocker keys to set an ON/OFF time for that Module. This will program the Mini Timer to turn that Module ON/OFF at that time every day.
  • Advance to another time, and press another ON or OFF button as desired.
  • Set the MODE switch back to RUN.
