I've been going to quite a few open houses lately, and I've noticed a strange trend. In more than a few houses, I've noticed a timer high up on the wall in the master closet.
I've seen alarm control panels in the master closet before, but I can't fathom why a timer would be in there. I'm thinking maybe it could be for landscape lighting, or a sprinkler system. I just can't understand why you would choose to install a control for those systems, in a second floor closet. The first time I saw it, I didn't think anything of it (I have kids, so I understand the purpose of keeping things away from curious hands). After seeing it in more than a couple homes, I started to question the practice.
Anybody have any experience with this, that could shed some light on the purpose of it?
