Controling automatic shutdown for lights


Im looking for a way to turn off the light in the bathroom after 30 minutes in case somebody forgot to turn it off. what would be the easiest way? i would love if there would be a switch replacement with this option built in but i have no knowledge about this stuff. could somebody nudge me in the right direction?

Google automatic light shut off. There are a lot of choices.

Before you buy anything, take the cover plate off the switch and make sure you have a neutral in there. If you don't, your options are going to be severely limited.

As for a nudge in the right direction, you might consider an occupancy sensor. Personally I can't stand them, but they might work for your situation.

Welcome to the forums.

In theory it sounds like a great idea until you're in the tub or on the can and it times out and you're left in the dark.

Since you are non-US..... I left some amazon links.
When purchasing a control you must also consider the voltage you have.
