Timer to replace toggle switch?

S'mise

I was wondering if a timer is available that's small enough to replace a standard toggle switch for lighting.

I've used decora shaped timers but have never seen a timer that'd fit a toggle plate.

Do they make such a thing?

Thanks.
With electronics getting smaller and smaller, I thought one might be on the market.
I'm sure it is possible, but who wants any kind of display/control interface as small as it would need to be for a toggle switch plate?

Me. But yes, point taken.

Although It could have a rotating toggle to select the time, or just time out after a fixed 8hrs.

That is what we have had for many years with spring wound timers. Most usually had their own plate with time marks on them though. Modern ones have a aux plate with markings that can fit on standard toggle opening or a decora opening though.

He does; he's hoping to avoid having to use a Decora plate.


Well, lookie-lookie at what I found!


Guess that is fine alternative for a spring wound type timer.

I was initially thinking of programmable 24hr - 7 day timers, the user interface would be nearly impossible to use via a toggle switch sized opening.
