Useful Timer Features

Allows the connected device to be used with an override key without inserting coins.
e.g. Snooker table lights can be used during a tournament without having to enter coins.
Allows a fixed amount to be set before the connected device will operate.
e.g.  A landlord wants to charge £3 for 1 hours use of a washing machine, (without this feature the appliance would start after the first £1 was entered, potentially cutting power to the machine mid-cycle).
Allows a count down before the connected device operates.
e.g. A tanning salon may give 2 minutes from entering coins before the sun bed switches on, allowing customers time to get changed.
Allows an audible warning to be given before the end of the allotted time period.
e.g. On a shower, you can set for a buzzer to sound 1 minute before it finishes, allowing users to wash off soap or shampoo.
Allows a secondary device, to continue for a pre-determined time once the allotted time has run out.
e.g. On a tennis court, secondary safety lighting could come on for 2 minutes after the main lights have switched off, allowing for a safe exit.
