We primarily use this timer during bed time. Our kids used to wake up at 4:30 to 6:30 and come into our room again and again, with no concept of 'Wake Up Time' (as most kids I realize). We set the timer to stay green until 7am, it turns yellow for 2 minutes (a warning it is almost wake up time) then it turns red, signalling wake time. If they have to use the bathroom, or need us for any reason, they know it is ok to leave the room. But in normal situations if it is not red, they go back into the bedroom and wait until it turns red. There was a learning curve for us and the kids, but this item works great! I would recommend the adapter, it requires 4 AA batteries for the lights, and lithium batteries for the clock, which burn down fast.

I used this product to manage me as a teacher with my mini lessons in Readers Workshop. I also used this timer to manage student workstations and to help children budget time while completing independent work. Unfortunately, like many other posters have mentioned, it can be unreliable. In June it worked just fine; however, when I returned to the classroom in August it was no longer working. Weird, right?! I thought it was the batteries so I replaced them with 4 brand new batteries. It still didn't work. After looking over the manual it said you would probably need to change the backup batteries when changing the other batteries. I searched high and low for the LR44 batteries (aka backup batteries) and finally found some. I replaced those as well and it still will not power on. This is very frustrating for me because I'm a classroom teacher and do not have the budget to keep replacing the timer each school year. :( The bottom line is that I would only recommend this device to somebody prepared to replace it yearly. I'm not that person because I already spend so much of my own money on my classroom and students.

    Comments about Time Tracker® Visual Timer & Clock:

    We bought this timer as a visual reminder for meetings so time didn't pass by, there was a visual reminder which has sounds to notify the changing of sections. Although there is a volume switch we have always used the Time Tracker with the volume on. We have since found a hundred other uses for it. We have timed dinner with it, got ready to go out and even homework. The timer sections can be used for a few seconds or for an hour the options are endless and although getting the correct combination to get into the menu and setting it up can be tricky to start with after a few uses you soon pick it up. We use the Time Tracker as a fantastic visual behaviour monitor.

    Comments about Time Tracker® Visual Timer & Clock:

    I used this timer with my center rotations. When it worked, it was fabulous. My first graders followed it perfectly: Green- work, Yellow- start cleaning up your center, Red - move to the next center. The problem is it often didn't work. It seemed to work in spurts. Good for a couple of weeks and then break. It has now been broken for a week and I think it's finished. I replaced all of the batteries (including the $10 button batteries) and the light is stuck on yellow and the time dislplay is completely blank. This timer is such a great idea but poorly made. I have 29 days of school left so I will make due without it. :(

    Comments about Time Tracker® Visual Timer & Clock:

    I have a classroom for emotionally disturbed and behaviorally challenged students. I typically have about ten students that come and go throughout the day. The logistics can be a nightmare....trying to keep up with who is coming and going while, at the same time, giving meaningful lessons for 6 different grades. The timer is a life saver. However, it takes a bit of getting used to. Learning to set the three timers can be painful. For example, I set the green light for one schedule. I then turn to my "wall of schedules" to see what I want to set the second timer for. If I don't push a button, it goes off in a few seconds and I have to start over. In addition, it does not allow one to start the first timer and go back later to start another timer. So, I have to write down how much time to place in each section and enter the data all at once. NEVERTHELESS, ONCE YOU CATCH ON TO THE HOW-TO'S, IT IS AN AWESOME TOOL!!!! I would precaution that it is not very user friendly, BUT I DEFINITELY RECOMMEND IT!!!

            I am so unhappy with this timer. We have changed the batteries multiple times, yet the "sounds" do not work properly. We NEED them to work as my Autistic son uses the timer in his ABA. My grandparents bought it as a gift for us. It was expensive, yet doesn't work properly. VERY disappointed! :-(

            I wanted to use this timer in my preschool classroom. However, the timer doesn't work. It doesn't allow me to add time. Instead, it stays on zero. I would like to order another one but based on other reviews it looks like it might not be worth it.

            I tried to use this timer for my pre-k classroom but the timer doesn't even work! I really like the idea of having the visual and auditory timer but I can't get it to work. When I try to set the timer it doesn't let me go higher than zero :(
            I would order another one but based on other reviews it looks like it would be another waste of money.

            I use this to keep us moving through our school day, so that we do not spend hours on one subject. I bought the timer a few years ago and it never worked correctly. I put it in the closet and brought it back out this year and it works, somewhat. The sounds are not working, but I got the lights to work for the first time. The batteries lasted about a week and then it died. I have put in fresh batteries and will try it again. I would like to try using a cord sometime.

            I just feel I have to write this. I was reading the review about the teacher that bought 2 and they stopped working! Identical story, I cannot bring myself to buy a third one either.I am thinking about mailing them both back and see if they will replace it. It is a wonderful concept and it does work, when it works. YES, I have replaced both sets of batteries and have tried to reset, it just simply dies!
