It also includes an internal timer (0-25 seconds), a red LED which indicates operation and a redundant backup switch. With a shipping weight of 1.5lbs and an operating temperature of +32 to +110F (0 to +43C) making it intended for indoor use only.
Note: There are three ways to know that the SP-1 is working when you install it correctly. The LED should come on, the relay should click and be heard, and the device should do what it is supposed to in the installation.
