    In our house we do have lightning that stops working after a 30 seconds
    or 1 minute. But for now the timer doesn't work anymore, it's broken.
    Someone who can help me find that thing on the net. And no, I don't
    look for a timer that programs every day or wathever, it's quiet
    easier. It's just a timer for our lightning in the hall. Have to work
    for 30 seconds or 1 minuut for example. It's built on the electrical
    box in the garage.

    Tnx

    You (hopefully..) mean a "lighting timer". Try a Google search on that -
    you will find plenty.

    The ones I use have a special "push-button" light switch rather than
    some electrical box in the garage.

    "Time Delay Pneumatic Switch"
    If only a single switch controls the light, generally yes. If the light
    has two or more switches (eg one in the hall and another at the top of
    the stairs, both of which allow the light to be switched on and off) -
    it becomes more difficult and these "1 way" switches aren't suitable.

    ok, I'll look for it in a store where they sell those things.

    And yes, it's only on and off switch for 1 circuit of light (more than
    1 light, i guess there are 4 lights).

    That doesn't look right...you could just eliminate that horrible looking
    box timer & get a sensor switch from The Home Depot and replace the wall
    switch to the lights in question with that., it has an adjustable
    sensitivty/time feature that will suit your needs....

    I guess the damaged box timer is older than the 2nd world war. :)

    Erm, I suspect that the travel cost of popping down to the nearest Home
    Depot may be a little high for the OP. The USA doesn't cover the whole
    planet - yet. :)

    he posts... is your best bet.
        Taking his advice seriously is the LAST thing any visitor to
    this group should do.

    The problem is that what the Home Depot carries may not meet codes and
    standards elsewhere.

    I can ([dig it] I) understand that, but in the business simplicity &
    comfort of use is a very important factor - most modern people aren't
    comfy with what they can't control with the simplest gesture....not to
    mention the space age folk };-)

    Sue, you are correct, but a state of the art occupancy sensor is the
    best solution to his lighting dilemma.Truth is if "lightning" is in his
    hallway they're deep in do do & wearing galoshes};-{)
