Rarely is a three way timer switch (if such an animal exists) useful. But a regular timer switch can override a 3 way switch setup to do one of: hold the light on all the time or keep the light off all the time.

When the timer is overriding the 3 way switches, you cannot easily set the 3 way switches so the light does what you want when the timer stops overriding, except if you remember which 3 way swithc positions do what.


States can help recovery from hurricanes and tornadoes by not requiring due digence or prompt and timely correction of substandard conditions, and by providing continued liability insurance where companies drop homeowners.
