Customer Reviews

Wonderful! Made it work with neutrals wire-nutted together Just installed it but so far so good! Very intuitive interface, love it.I started with 2 black wires and one ground on my original flip switch. I also had a bundle of 4 white wires all wire-nutted together jammed into the back of the box. I used the black wire that was on the top screw of my original light switch and put that on the top screw of the timer. I put the other black wire that was on the lower screw of my original switch onto the lower (black) screw of the timer. Then green to green using a wire nut that was provided with this switch. Then I used a small extra piece of white wire, 12 gauge solid, and added it to my bunch of other white neutral wires, creating a group of 5 white neutral wires. They are all wire nutted together with a large wire nut I had to buy. Then I connect that short white neutral to the middle screw of the switch, and everything works great! Not sure if it is correct, but seems to work.Fits easily in the box, it doesn't take up much more room than a regular switch. A small indicator light glows at all times, showing what time setting it is currently on. Then when you hit the big square button, it turns on the fan, and the indicator light blinks. When the time is almost up, the indicator light blinks faster, which is nice. 5With-neutral model allows control of low-energy loads This is a decorator-style switch with a timer that counts down to automatic shutoff.(Note that at least for a while, Amazon had this listed as a dimmer. It's not. It's an on-off switch with a countdown timer. When it's on it's on and when it's off it's off and there's no dimming in between.)It's fairly good looking and fairly easy to use. About the looks: the LED status lights glow red. I wish they were green to match the rest of the Lutron Maestro dimmer/switch lineup.Lutron makes two similar models of countdown timer switch; this one branded as "with neutral" or "multi-location" (MA-T51MN) which has 4 screw terminals, and a similar model "without neutral" (MA-T51) with 2 screw terminals.The 4 terminals on this one: hot, neutral, switched hot to load, and control for multi-location (3-way or 4-way wiring). Use of the multi-location terminal is optional, but use of the neutral wire is not. This makes it harder to use as a drop-in replacement for existing switches, because your switch box may or may not have a neutral wire present.The advantage of the with-neutral model is it can turn all the way off, instead of (I assume) trickle-charging itself through the load. So, it's suitable for low-energy loads like fluorescent lights, LED lights, and energy-efficient fans.If you can provide a neutral wire at the switch location, you probably want this one. If you're controlling an incandescent light (or any other load over 50 watts) and cannot provide a neutral wire at the switch location, you probably want MA-T51 instead. 4Works just as advertised; ditched a finicky humidity sensor. Works just as advertised.The install was relatively straightforward and overall the switch has a decent build quality (an important attribute I value when purchasing products). I originally installed the Top Greener TDHOS5 Humidity Sensor Switch, which was an awful experience. My whole home is wired with the Lutron occupancy sensors and I figured the top Greener would be a great switch that combined an automatic exhaust fan with occupancy sensor in my master bathroom. I regret it as the ability to sense a room visible with steam moisture in the air hardly set it off. I had to rewire my newly installed exhaust fan to fit this timer switch considering I had to create an additional outlet and it was well worth it. This little guy does great running a basic exhaust fan for keeping moisture/humidity from molding up the bathroom. I think it's great being able to run it and leave it. There's been plenty of time the previous exhaust fan was left running way too long due to it being forgotten about and that's no longer an issue with this switch. 5Works with high efficiency bathroom fans. I have a high efficiency bathroom fan (Panasonic FV-08VQL6) that I wanted to use with a timer control. The single pole version of this unit MA-T51 that uses no neutral wire has limited capability to control lower loads. This, even though somewhat obscurely, is indicated in the Troubleshooting section of the MA-T51 Installation manual.Load turns on and off repeatedly.* Load draws less than 0.3 A or 40 W* Improper load connectedMy Panasonic fan is rated only for 14.5W or approximately 0.13 Watt, less than half of that of the specified lowest load recommended. So I've purchased this MA-T51MN (multi gang) model. And I can confirm that it does in fact works fine with my 0.13 Watt Panasonic fan. The only drawback that I find is that the timer has a shut-off restart cycle 1 minute prior to the end of delay time set. This, in case of a fan control is not only not necessary, but should be disabled. Quick recycling of AC power serves no purpose and can cause only problems. 5Easy to install countdown timer. Installed easily in place of a bathroom light/fan switch. This countdown timer fulfills my purpose - run a fan for a period of time after I leave (let's clear the air here...) but not all night if I forget the fan's running.My wife's had no problem operating the switch - setting the time and turning it on/off. Pretty simple.The only irritant is a design 'feature' - a minute before time's up, the switch turns the fan off momentarily. My fan's a slow-start type, so this shuts the fan off and it doesn't start for several seconds. This can be a bit disconcerting. 5The neutral has advantages I originally bought the MA-T51-WH switch (no neutral) because it was a good looking countdown timer with increments up to 60 minutes as well as an always-on mode. I also liked the fact that it didn't require a neutral connection... until I installed it and found out that the lack of a neutral caused a problem.I have a fan and fluorescent light which are connected to the switch, and when I pushed the switch, it would turn on for a moment then turn off for a second or two and then turn on again (and stay on). After contacting Lutron technical support (which is excellent), I learned that the lack of a neutral connection makes the switch less robust for certain types of loads. It probably works for most people, but since it didn't work for me, they recommended that I get the same model of switch that also has a neutral connection (MA-T51MN-WH). Since I have a neutral connection in my switch box, this wasn't a problem for me. The neutral connection did the trick and now the switch turns on as it should. One more thing that I learned is that the model without the neutral can have the two wire leads connected in either order, but once a switch with a neutral connection is added, the order of the live leads is very important. If they are connected in the wrong order, the switch won't work.Now that I have the correct switch and all the wires connected correctly, it's working admirably. If you have a neutral connection in your switch box, you may want to play it safe and just get the switch with the neutral. It only costs a little bit more and could save you some trouble. 5This countdown timer works with my Panasonic Whisper Fan bathroom ... This countdown timer works with my Panasonic Whisper Fan bathroom ventilator. The timers that Panasonic sells are not as convenient to use as this, because this one allows selecting different countdown times conveniently. (One of the Panasonic timers has a fixed 20 minute countdown which usually isn't long enough for recovering room dryness after a shower.) The MA-T51MN allow selections up to 60 minutes. But here is the important part. There has been discussion here and elsewhere that the Lutron electronic countdown timers do not work for Panasonic Whisper Fans. The secret to success is to choose one that requires a connect to the neutral (white) wire, as well as hot and fan. The MA-T551MN has this neutral connection feature. It allows the countdown electronics to work by taking power between hot and neutral. The models without a neutral connect try to leak power through the fan to run the countdown electronics. This apparently does not work well with the Whisper Fans. 5Needs White Neutral Wire; For Low Wattage Loads; Requires Ordered Black Wire Connection I heeded the warnings from other reviewers about special timers for "low wattage" loads, CFL & LED lights, or fans w/ CFL - - for my Broan 70 cfm exhaust fan w/ LED light, I found my switch box has a neutral (good job, electrician) and to avoid a time hassle with the MH model (w/o neutral), instead bought (this) MN model which seems to work (maybe the MH would have also worked, but it's the path not taken).Many buyers want to use a timer for lighting; my purpose is for a bathroom fan w/ LED, to exhaust sufficiently, but not let it run unnecessarily to keep FAN service life as long as possible -- prematurely replacing a fan unit covered by ceiling drywall is a large project (even for the next owner of my house).Also, other reviewers (and instructions) say the Lutron MUST be connected with the "live" BLACK wire (which returns to main panel) to the BLACK screw -- my first attempt was incorrect (wouldn't operate), so switched black wires, and the Lutron operated. The source BLACK wire is connected to the brass/gold screw, with WHITE neutral to silver screw.Overall, I found the Lutron was designed in a past period of high wattage lights & fans; modern lighting (whether dying CFL and green LED) and efficient whisper quiet exhaust fans have been ignored by Lutron. Lutron has been sitting on its laurels with this device. You can tell by the large physical size, and I had to cram it into my smaller volume wire box. There is no reason for Lutron to make it this large in the age of small $10 8-megapixel cameras in phones. There is also poor disclosure of use of their timers -- you'll find CFL & LED symbols crossed off on the MH model box - hidden in plain sight and with poor website description. Up start companies, whether Hubbell or Legrand or a smart Asia company, can eat Lutron's lunch (sad as it is Pennsylvania based), and 2016 is the year of angry working people feeling left behind & ignored). Who is watching the store at some of these companies ?Also, Lutron isn't keeping up with simple innovations like using pressure contact plate for SIDE wiring -- for longevity, don't connect via BACK wiring, but connect via screwed-in SIDE wiring. Switches from Hubbell (but not Leviton) have pressure contact plates - - insert bare wire under the plate, and screw tight -- whether you're wiring one or 20 outlets/switches, you will appreciate the convenience of pressure plates instead of wrapping wire around screws. Whenever I change out outlets, I use "spec" type (plus heavier duty) to avoid wrapping wire around screws.And that's how companies say ahead, via simple innovations that matter a lot.In terms of operations, it's relatively simple.1. When receiving power, a small LED is always lit (even if black wired incorrectly).2. Tap main plate to turn on (no need to push hard).3. Use (right) small up/down rocker to select timer period (5-60 minutes) -- you probably need to set this only once as it remembers your last setting. The LED's will flash down as time elapses. When OFF, the LED will stay lit for the time (e.g. 30, 45 minutes) you last selected.4. When ON, can turn OFF (bypass timer control) by tapping the large plate.5. When OFF, tapping twice the on/off plate will turn ON & bypass the timer & stay ON until turned OFF. For fan control, there's no reason to use this as you may accidentally leave it ON running the fan way too long. It's for lights, so lights can be on indefinitely. 3Perfect exhaust fan timer to automatically handle humid air after a shower Bought this countdown timer switch to use on our master bath fan. Works perfectly. You can easily set the amount of time you want the fan to run between 5 and 60 minutes (6 different time settings available as shown on the front of the switch). Once you've set it, you just need to tap the switch to turn the fan on and it will remember whatever it was last set to, turning itself off after the prescribed time. You can also set it to just work as an on/off touch switch, but that defeats the purpose of being a countdown timer switch. This switch is a perfect solution to exhausting the humid air during and after a shower without having to remember to turn the fan off (45 to 60 minutes recommended). In the photo, I have the fan's timer switch mounted with two light switches, one for the shower light and the other for the main overhead light. 5Good match to the rest of the Lutron Maestro line. This switch is exactly what I was looking for. I'm in the process of cutting over everything to Lutron switches, since they seem to have the broadest range of home automation. Maestro line (this is part of that line) has some really nice switches that match pretty well with the Caseta line for pure home automation.This switch matches the rest of the switches, it requires a neutral (like much of the Maestro line) giving it the ability to hand all kinds of loads including motors and other non-resistive loads. Plus, you can use a standard companion Maestro switch to use in a 3-way (or n-way, actually) configuration giving you a fair amount of flexibility.To set up the switch, you set the little up/down toggle on the right to set the time until off (in 5 minute increments). It will accept infinity (always on) as the longest setting.To operate, you tap the switch, the LED start flashing at the selected increment and it will turn off in the time you've selected during setup. With 1 minute to go, it will flash the lights briefly alerting you that it's about to shut off.The downside is that you do need a neutral, and unlike the rest of the Maestro line it did not come with the usual 3" neutral extension, so you'll have to craft your own. And the LED is not green to match the rest of the line, it's more of a neon-glow orange.Despite the manufacturer's caution, it will work with LED lights provided they draw sufficient power (some claim it's less than 5 watts). Highly recommended. 5
