A Door Timer can be used in concert with a Door Servo to automatically open doors at set times of the day. In addition, Door Timers can be used to connect to other wired objects such as a Power Switch, Logic Circuit, Logic Bridge, or Status Light.


  • High Power Connection (Directly wired to the electric grid via the utility menu)

Tips and Tricks[]

  • Despite the name beeing door timer, it can be linked to virtually any signal receiving peripheral, allowing a much wider usage.
  • If it loses power the connections do not reset. You can create a daylight detector by setting the timer output to "open" at all times, connected to a solar panel only transformer and use an AND logic. This would allow for a much wiser power distribution network not wasting any energy.
