Question

How can I temporarily disable the Mini-Timer without deleting the stored events?

Answer

There are two ways to do that:

You can put the Mini-Timer in "SET CLOCK" mode (on the four-position slide switch.) In that mode, the clock will run normally, but no timed commands will be issued for position 1 or 5. Other timers will run normally.

To disable all the timers, simply change the House Code on the Mini-Timer to an unused House Code. The commands will still go out, but nothing will be set to receive them. Change the House Code back to start the timers up again.

When you first plug in the MT12A or MT13A Mini Timer it controls X10 Modules set to Housecode A. If you want to change the Housecode:

  1. Set the Mode switch to “Housecode Set.”
  2. Press the up or down "Time" rocker to select the desired Housecode (as shown in the display).
  3. Set the Mode switch back to RUN.
