    Currently using them on my pond for lights and air on a timer. It'll depend on the manufacturer, I use TP-Link but they are either on / off or you use a schedule but mine only works with minutes.

    AJM i did find a lot of stuff out and finally did find one you can do seconds on,but was just a normal digital timer,reason i was asking is mainly for lights above pond but also ive just bough a superfish/van gervan/aquaforte feeder lol,and i thought the timer had broke but no was just me not realising how slow they spit food out lol,but as i didnt want to return to sellar who was really nice about if it didnt work as the one its replacing is an old aquaforte square thing that works fine but sounds like a brenn gun and probably shoots pellets as far if turned up to full lol,so i was thinking could i just stick a smart socket on instead of timer and program it somehow but i was thinking needed seconds as my old one fired out 100gms food in 10 seconds,turns out the superfish ones are a slow rotate and had to set it for 2 mins for same amount,so if any of you guys feeders stop as i have heard a few stories of the timer not been very good on these,i would try cutting timer out and replace with a normal plug in timer before you bin them,or if you have loads of money for another then send them to me lol,,,,,,andi
