Elkay 2 Wire Master Push Button White
Elkay 2 -wire electroni timer
BUY BEWARE. This product does not work with small load Low Voltage lighting. You need to order the 3-wire version. You will need a neutral at the switch position and you will need to fit a PF capacitor. (So you will also need a 35mm deep back box). ALSO note that this capacitor is not available from Screwfix. You have to buy it from the manufacturer. Service from Screwfix is as ever excellent, and the replacement 3 wire unit will arrive tomorrow. But no idea when I will see the capacitor from Elkay.

Two way stairs lighting
Does exactly what it says.
Two way switching with slave unit via 3 core + earth cable with no neutral.
Blue light rim around switch button looks smart.
Follow instructions to the letter and super easy.
Uneven walls may show a bit of light behind switch.

Good, but flawed...
We use these in a small bathroom for a caravan site. They work really well, until you have a power cut. When teh power is restored, they are on all the time, until you take the faceplate off and start a reset procedure, which is a real pain.
If it would reset more predictably, it would be a full 5*.

Nightmare to get working
I actually am an Electrician and ordered three units when they came 2 had planely been used before had no intructions and screwdriver marks but hey ho i tried to bench set up the one that was in intact packaging. it just would not turn off , tried battery reset the lot , then tried supect ones >never worked as the instructions mentioned infact the instructions are not clear . Oh and be carefull the two dead terminals are actully commoned up with the live terminal (An electrician will know what this means) I would say avoid at all costs ... or did i just have three from a dodgy batch ?
