GE digital timer in 3-way circuit


Is there a way to use a GE digital timer model 15086 in a lighting circuit that has 2 switches? If not, does somebody sell a timer that does work in a 3-way switch circuit?

Do you want the timer to override the switches or do you want the switches to override the timer?

Do you want the override to be in the form of keeping the light on or keeping the light off?

Sorry for the delay. My key objective is having lights on a timer. If there are no 3-way timers, I'd likely look to take the second switch out of service all together.

GE does not make a 3-way digital programmable timer. GE makes a spring-wound countdown single-pole and 3-way timer 15305 available at Home Depot.

Other companies make a 3-way programmable timer, and the wiring is slightly different by brand, and you have to pay attention to wiring diagrams. Some require extra jumper wire at second switch because of the timer electronics. pay attention to which 3-way switch you are replacing: the one with Hot wire or the one with Load wire.
