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.

Very hard to read screen

About Me Teacher
Great tool, but the screen is always black unless you press a button. It's hard to read, and you can't see the timer count down. Also hard to set the time.

Black screen when not using buttons.

Ex. I would (have to) buy this product again and again
By Looking for Solutions
from Concord, CA
Unfortunately, the lights (the reason I purchased this device) are not working. I'll contact the manufacturer and hope for the best. Having been involved with the electronics industry somewhat, I cannot understand why such a simple concept as a this device is having the issues it seems to have, based upon the reviews I've read.How these people respond will be an indicator to me of the quality and integrity of the this company. An announcement of improvements on this page would also be welcome. I'm a teacher and know many teachers; it would be nice to have this company as a resource for me and for them. Get a clue, my friends.

It only lasted a month of constant use
from North Carolina
About Me Parent
We received as a gift on Christmas, purchased from Young Explorers. At first, we used it to signal how much time toddler had left before transition to next activity. Then, we used it for potty training and had the timer set for every 30 minutes. We were using it constantly for a month before we had to change the batteries. Then a couple of weeks later, it seemed to malfunction again (a signal we thought was time for another battery change). The digital display disappeared and the green and yellow lights remained on, and replacing thet batteries did not fix the problem. I really liked the timer when it worked, but now I'm hoping that there's a similar product out there that's more durable.

About Me Educator
This is a terrible timer. It is hard to use and the menu, start and enter buttons all have to be pushed really hard to get them to even work. I spend more time trying to change the settings than actually getting the timer to work. Very disappointing as I cannot use it in my classroom.
Really hard to operate
By Disappointed girl
from Quebec Canada
I am very disappointed with this product. The buttons are either not working or too sensitive and you pass by the time you want to set and then have to start the programming over. It would have been so easy to put a simple timer set button and then a start time button but no! You have to go through many steps of programming each time you want to set a new time. Even to simply start the already programmed time you have to push a series of buttons! So annoying! And to remember the right sequence, it is not easy....definitely not worth the price.
Stopped working after a few days use.
By Mrs. B
from Boise, ID
I was using this in a high school classroom, 1/2 of the day. After a few days it stopped working. I switched from batteries to an adapter and it still doesn't work. The only thing that comes up on the screen are 3 digital lines between 1-3 inches long.

Well the lights work

About Me Parent Of Two Or More Children, Stay At Home Parent
We have a son with Aspergers and a daughter who is home schooled and was excited to get the item and the sound did not work out of the gate. Even after resetting it and adjusting the volume it just does not work.For our daughter it would have been perfect for her when she is not paying attention to the light we have the sound backup. Welp, that did not work so I am quite disappointed.The other reviews on the item and having issues is spot on. Guess I should have researched more.
Merchant response: We are sorry for the poor experience that you had with our Time Tracker. We would like to have the opportunity to provide you with a replacement product as it appears yours was not functioning properly.

We apologize for this inconvenience and we hope we can continue to meet your needs in the future.
Good timer with lots of uses!
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
